|Cheers to May 2-4!|
I hope everyone out there enjoyed their May 2-4. I'm happy to report my weekend was one of the best May 2-4's to date! Not only did the weather cooperate this year, but the 'cabin', company and food were also great. Below I've included some lovely food porn, as well as some scenic highlights from the weekend.
Setting the SceneWe stayed at an absolutely gorgeous vacation home and were in no way 'roughin it' in typical May 2-4 style; however, we were far away from the city and surrounded by nature - just the way we like it!

The Big FeedOnce we were all settled into our weekend home, we immediately fired up the grill. Day 1 is typically the most intense BBQ-fest and this year was no different - steak, chicken, wieners, potatoes, sidekicks and salad.

|Ready to eat!|
|My plate - BBQ Steak, Steamed Baby Spuds, BBQ Wiener and Salad|
Two Fires!Nothing beats sitting under the stars on a warm night with a fire crackling in front of you. Throw in a few marshmallows and roasted wienies, some beers and close friends and you've got yourself a good time. Possibly one of my favourite parts of the weekend - so glad we got out for a fire both nights.

The Big BreakfastAs I mentioned in my May 2-4 Checklist, the big breakfast is probably the most anticipated meal of the weekend - this year we had taters, toutins, bologny, bacon and eggs.

BBQ Part 2Our Day 2 BBQ tends to go back to basics, and this year it was no different. Nothing but burgs and wiens. I enjoy this photo because it looks like we're feeding 20 people, but nope, just 8!

As you can see it was a great weekend. Other memorable weekend moments include:
- 'toutin mountain'
- the search for 24 flavour ice cream
- a brief trip back to childhood on a deserted playground in Cville
- accidentally taking the long section of a hiking trail & getting slightly lost
- the amazing new card game of 15's
- getting eaten alive by mosquitoes
