What a Fun Visit!

This blog is for our family--those who visited this weekend and those who didn't. The rest of you might not be very interested in this post.

For the past two days, John's sister Kendal and husband John and their two daughters, Jennifer and Kim, and their families stayed here at Mueller. Jennifer had arranged the visit. She and husband Scott, their grown children Sarah and Dylan, and John's sister and husband stayed in one of the cabins that we clean. Kim and her husband Andy camped in a nearby tent site. We also spent most of the time enjoying the cabin. This gave us the opportunity to enjoy the cabins, not just work in them.

While visiting Sunday evening, we enjoyed the deck. We heard some sounds and were delighted to be able to watch this small flock of turkeys feeding for maybe half an hour.

We moved inside and John enjoyed time with Kendal and John. Sarah took a nap.

Jennifer and Kim had some sister time.

After dinner, we celebrated brother-in-law John's birthday.

Monday morning we had coffee and conversation on the deck. Scott, Andy and Dylan left at 5:30 in the morning to go fly fishing. They were gone all day. The rest of us took a short hike to Peak View Pond.

What is going on here? They are looking for four-leaf clovers. And Sarah found one.

During the afternoon, we took a longer hike to the Osbourn Homestead with Kim.

Monday's dinner was pork carnitas, which called for all of us to assemble our meal on our own around the dining table. It was fun.

This morning, we again gathered for coffee on the deck. It was a much cooler morning, getting down to 44 degrees. Several people, including Sarah and Scott, used blankets to keep warm.

Before everyone left, everyone posed for a family photo.
