We did what we could to keep grins on our faces over the long weekend. We rode, we hiked, we paddled, we swam. We made ice cream. And then we ate it! We grilled flesh (by god!). And then we ate that too. We played indoors while the wind howled, we avoided crowds while riding, and then we rode some more.
Cramming that much hedonistic pleasure into three days is my idea of 'living'. Bonus that it makes for such a short work-week-after.
