I am hosting a bar-b-q Sunday,so was off to super wal mart to get stuff this morning at 6am.
Love shopping at that time in the morning virtually no one is there :)
Other than the bar-b-q I am just going to relax and enjoy some down time.
What are your plans?

I plan on doing nothing at all. I'm sure will go boating one day, but I'm going to go sit by the pool and read as much as possible. :)

Nothing at all can be great,and I plan on doing pretty much that myself other than Sunday :)
My boat is barely out of storage lol It hasn't been quite warm enough here yet this year to get out on the lake.Hopefully soon though.

Camping and quad riding with a whole bunch of friends.  One of the couples owns land in the mountains.  Beautiful.  I love the mountains.  Everyone brings tents, campers, motor homes, popups, whatever they have.  We've had 60 or more there at one time.  I don't think that many are coming this weekend.  Gas prices went up again of course.  Stupid oil companies putting a damper on a holiday again.  Anyway, I'm packing my K travel case and plan on sitting by the fire and reading a bunch. 
Hope you all have a great time no matter what you plan to do.

Oh I love the mountains :)
Yes I noticed right after fishing opener here gas prices went up.I kind of figured once Summer arrived they would go up.
Reading by the fire sounds nice :)

Neat. I hear they are great.

My family always used to go to the cemetary on Memorial Day to clean up the graves, plant new flowers and put flags on the vets graves. Then they would cook up big pots of spaghetti and meatballs over portable stoves while the kids ran around looking for old graves and rolling down the hills.

Fun times. ;D

Not sure how crowded/busy it will be this weekend, but definitely take a tour of the "summer cottages" (mansions to most of us). If the Naval War College is open or your husband can get you in, it has a nice little museum you can get through in a couple hours. Downtown Newport is nice to walk around in and has many good restaurants. (It's been about 15 years since I was last there, so I can't give any specific recommendations.)

Off to a friend's graduation celebration this afternoon (she went back to school at age 45 and just got her Master's).  Two hours in weekend traffic each way for a half-hour ceremony.  

And on the weekend, mostly catching up on all the stuff that didn't get done in the past few weeks because of end-of-semester craziness.  With luck the gorgeous weather will hold and I can do a lot of catching up on the gardening too!

Hope to get the wave runners out on the lake at least one day. Wind advisories and thunderstorms have prevented us from boating so far this spring.

Of course, we will be grilling and lounging by the pool. Since the niece is graduating the 30th, DD & family won't be coming up for the holiday weekend, so no grandkids this year! :(

Birthday party tomorrow afternoon, then the first Porch Sitting (neighborhood thing, we descend on someone's house with our lawn chairs and beverages of choice) of the year tomorrow night.... Hoping to see Star Trek either Sunday or Monday.
