Cabin Week July 4th.

Finally five days at the cabin.  My wife and I were able to leave Sunday after a grandson’s graduation party and stay until the following friday evening.  Our daughter Tara, her husband Glen, their son Kyle, and his cousin Brady joined us late Tuesday evening.

We crammed a lot into 4-5 days and were even able to relax from time to time!  The various communities had scheduled their fireworks displays for different nights so we had our pick of where to go.

The weather started off with a “heat advisory” for the first three days, but Thursday and Friday were awesome weather wise! Due to the intense heat I went to the local Luzerne hardware store and bought a “kiddie pool” to cool off in!  Might of been the smartest thing I did on this trip.  How refreshing it was to sit in a lawn chair in the middle of the pool and splash water on myself when needed! We also have air conditioning at the main cabin which helped us stay comfortable inside.

I was able to get 9 holes of golf in at the Fairview Hills golf course, and as usual my 13 year old grandson beat me.  Not by much mind you (42-44) but a whooping is a whooping!  We also fished at McCormick Lake, visited Hartwick Pines in Grayling, and went to the Cedar Valley Amusement Park in Comins!

At the cabin we rode 4-wheelers and played “ladder ball golf,” and did some target practice with the pellet guns.  Glen had a rip roaring fire one evening and we ate more “s’mores” than we should of!  I was able to do a little work around the place, but the intent was to enjoy the family and the joys of sharing Michigan’s great outdoors.

On a side note my wives bird feeder was missing, and the third day there I found it in the woods smashed!  The limb it was hanging on was broken so that leads me to believe a hungry black bear visited us “once again!”
