Fun with our friends

We had some friends visit our log cabin this weekend and I think we did every activity imaginable that you could pack into 2 days.


Aren't they a cute couple?



Bet you wouldn't have guessed they were snipers! Ha,ha! We did some target shooting at my in-laws place.



Terri is a good shot! (I however am not. Looks like no career in law enforcement for me!)




Hubby is still proving that he has his secret service agent skills! (Yep - he was in the secret service eons ago!)




We took a quick visit to the Ausable River.




Had a bonfire but I forgot marshmallows. (Yes - I know - how could I?!)


The weather is getting warmer which means our visitors should increase to the cabin! Remember - I like cookies and pies!

Cam said...

Better make those marshmallow cookies ;)

April said...

Where did your snow go? Any chance that it will return? Glad to see that you had such a fun time with your friends! I can't shoot a gun, either! I'm a big ol' chicken when it comes to that sort of thing, anyway!

Oh,... a campfire,... it will be a while before I can do that. Looks like it was a great weekend for you and your guests.

Debbie said...

Cookies and pies, huh? If I ever come to Gaylord, I will have to stop at the Amish bakery near my town.

Brandi said...

Looks like such fun. I seems your woods are waking from their long winter nap!

We love shooting! I am not as good as some but I keep practicing. And how nice to have a camp fire. Not around here, too dry and windy. It could set the entire county on fire and I wouldn't want to do that.

Glad you had some fun,

Just a little something from Judy said...

You deserve the title of hospitality queen. It seems to me that all of your friends would want to pay you a visit at your log cabin, even if you do forget the marshmellows. Looks like you all had so much fun.

We love target shooting too and campfires! Isn't that brown dirt pretty?! Nice to see it for a change!

Denise said...

Looks like you all had so much fun! I love target shooting.

We certainly eat our fair share, and then some, of s'mores here in the summer! We have a fire almost every weekend, unless it's too hot!

Have a great day, Denise

Pam at Antique or Not said...

I'll be sure to bring a fresh pie when we come visit! LOL

Darla said...

that sounds like a fun time. Not so sure about the guns for me though. Cookies work though!!

I'm bringing marshmallows (and some chocolate), too!
Have a great week,

George said...

It looks like you had a great weekend even if you did forget the marshmallows! I'm glad Spring is edging closer to you up there in Michigan.

Charli and me said...

That looks like so much fun! We like to have bond fires out by our swing. Nothing like it. I can only imagine how great it would be in the woods by the lake.

Bobbi Jo said...

Michelle Dawn said...

Karen said...

Looks like you guys had a good weekend this time! Where the heck did all the snow go?
Secret service? That is so cool. I'll bet he has tons of interesting stories!
I was thinking about you this morning when a bird I had never seen before landed out our back door in one of the olive trees. I thought "Now see, Shelly would know what kind of bird that is . . . "
HAGD!!!

miss mary said...

looks beautiful, and sounds like you had a great time- ut no marshmallows (really how could you?) : 0 )
Have a great day.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

This passed summer we had company and decided to make S'mores. I bought the marshmallows, graham crackers and Hershey bars. We had a fire....made them and they just didn't taste as good as we all remembered -lol.
Hugs,
Penny

JANE said...

I've forgotten the marshmallows before also!! My kids would be envious of all the shooting going on at your place!!

Constance said...

Campfires and weenie roasts, a magical combination! I told Dave that we have to have a fire ring when we build. I want to be able to have a campfire in the evening or when family and friends come to visit.

Little Debbie actually makes s'mores and my son LOVES them in his lunch. I am a purist myself, a s'more snob if you will. I gotta have the real ones!
Connie

If I ever come I'll bring my famous "Seven Dollar Pie"!
