Last week at the cabin

Well I've been back to work since Monday. We had a really good time at the cabin. Took my nephews fishing. On Tuesday we went to Houghton Lake and on Wednesday we went to Long Lake.
It was very windy on Houghton Lake and we had a some trouble anchoring. Did not catch much. We had a turkey dinner at my mother in laws after we came off the lake. It was a nice way to end a good day fishing.
Funny thing happened on Wednesday. I orignially was going to take the boys to Grass Lake. there is no public access and after looking at the lake we would have been catching nothing but weeds. So we ended up at Long Lake. Got the boat in the water, I parked the truck and Sean said "Uncle Bill the boat is filling up with water". OH S***, I forgot to put the plug in. Thank God for my little bilge pump. So we fished and again we really didn't catch much. So after we were done I was backing the trailer into the launch when I broke one of the tail lights off the trailer. So we got the boat on the trailer and headed back over to my Mother in Laws for turkey left overs.
Well I hope the boys had fun even if I am a terrible fishing guide. I know I had fun.

Here is some of the fish we did catch.

Here is Sean checking out the babes, oh I mean the birds. Well it starts with a B.

Denise had here Mom but this fountain. I hope Denise has paid her Mom. I don't need a upset Mother in Law

Denise has her Red Headed Woodpeckers, well these our mine. The Pilated Woodpecker they are just awesome.

And here is the summer pic of the cabin from across the lake.

Take care everyone.

I'm on vacation!!! I'm on Vacation!!!

Well I am on vacation this week. Spent the weekend with family. My sister and her family came up from Houston. Linda flew up and Kevin and the kids drove. Linda flew because she could only be here for the weekend. They all came into town for our family reunion on Saturday. We had alow turn out because of the wonderful weather we had. It rained all day long, but we still managed to have good time. Here are a couple of pics of the reunion.

Here are 4 of my Dad's sisters. Aunts Helen, Dorothy, Mary Jane and Francis.

Here is our clan. Sean, Jimmy, Debbie, Denise, Kate and Sara.

My Cousin Frank's little one was having a great time playing in the rain.

Here is a pic of all of our nieces and nephews. It is a very occasion that we are all together in the same place at the same time.

From L to R; Sean, Kate, Sara, Jimmy, Michelle, Shandra and of course Our Cleo had to be in the picture as well.

Linda has already arrived back home and Kevin and the girls are driving back home tomorrow. Sean is staying a few exrta days. So we are taking him and Jimmy up to the cabin for a few days of fishing. I am really looking forward to it. The truck is packed and we are just waiting for the morning to come. It is going to be a very nice time.

We will talk to everyone when we get back next week. I leave you with a couple of pics of our angel dog Kaiser.
