Best Week Ever (Part 2)

Yes, it’s true.  Someone had the “Best Week Ever,” in case you forgot, it was ME! The weekend didn’t end when we nearly burnt down the bible camp, there’s more.  Sunday started with a breakfast feast of chocolate chip and blueberry pancakes (not together, that’s weird, but I’d be up for it), Brian’s bacon (my Dad’s favorite bacon hands down), eggs, sausage, fruit salad. Turns out my fam had another surprise for me, dun dun dun…river rafting. We drove to Indian River, rented some rubber rafting boats and hit the fastest flowing river in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Sounds exhilarating doesn’t it? Turns out Michigan’s fastest flowing river in the Lower Peninsula is pret-ty lazy. Don’t get me wrong we had a great time and what the river lacked in adventure it made up for in beauty. We got to soak up some sun rays and spend some quality time with mother nature, all while being entertained by the antics of Chad and Daniel. This is the only picture I have of the rafting, because we were afraid to take our cameras or phones on the river with us for fear they’d get soaked, makes me laugh now. Although you can never be too careful when it comes to cell phones and water…especially when there are boys around.

The crew minus my dad, who's taking the picture

No family gathering at the cabin is complete without an hour or two at the shooting range. So after a quick lunch, we headed over to test or sharp shooting skills at cut-out “30” signs and Happy Birthday posters.

yeah, that's my shooter, watch out.

Chad with bullets in his ears for hearing protection. So hardcore.

Giving a lesson on the 22

Ever heard of the Michigan Militia?

I’m currently listening to the new Ryan Adams, ‘Ashes and Fire.’
