Cabin Trip

Cabin trips have not happen so much in the past years because of Dan's work schedule. Since he has been in a new postion and does not have to work weekends we were able to go to the cabin with my brother and his family. We went down to the old apple orchard to look around. There were no apples on the trees but we walked around a little bit and and the trees are still numbered. The house is no longer there but the steps to the house are. I asked my dad and he told me that he remembers the lady that owned the orchard and he does remember her selling apples. It was a uneventful weekend but nice to go up and be in the cool air. The low was in the 30's and the high was in the 60's that weekend.

Michael's 8th Birthday

Michael celebrated his 8th birthday in September. We took him to pick out his present which was a new bike. That morning he had a flag football game which Dan took him to. When they went to leave the truck would not start. Someone saw Dan and gave him a jump start. It was only the battery so that is good thing but the battery was 1 month past warranty but isn't that how things work when they have a warranty on them. We did not tell Michael that he was getting a bike but just took him to the store and we walked by the bikes and that is when we told him. Dan helped him pick out a new bike while I chased Mattie and David around the store. We went to lunch at Subway and then came home. That night my brother a

nd his family came over for cake and ice cream.
