cabin number 5

friday afternoon we packed up riesling and drove to the lake for a few days of relaxing, fire building, grilling, and card playing. it was an extremely good time.
our humble abode for the weekend. she don't look like much, but she sure kept us cozy.
mike and kari roasting some 'mallows after dinner on friday.
saturday morning after breakfast, we drove into town and went to the fayetteville farmers market. it was packed (and cold), but we ran into some other friends while we were there.
we had lunch and did some thrifting in town, then picked up a few more groceries for dinner and headed back to the homestead. it finally warmed up a bit so we got out the bocce set for some lawn games.
this is probs my favorite pic of the whole weekend. the boys went out gathering kindling for the grill with scotch in hand.
our cabin was right next to the walking trail. we never went walking.
and some grilled potatoes with our breakfast on sunday morning before heading out of the wilderness and back to reality.
we had a great time, made loads of memories, and cracked lots of jokes. the best party is sharing it with friends :)

I am always so jealous of how nice the weather appears to be in your world.

Looks like a TON of fun. I really heart reading your blog Amanda! It makes me happy. I thought you should know this. Thanks for making me happy!

Also, this post makes me excited for the day when all the Furnell babies are Furnell children. Mind you, we have already gone camping with our son, and it is fabulous. ;-)

Nothing bonds friends more than lighting marshmallows on fire together. true story.

It looks like you are really having a blast! I think it's so great that you and your husband still enjoy times with friends and apparently follow your passions--your store and your house, for starters--even though you have a child. I think people compromise their dreams when they have kids sometimes, and it's really inspiring to see that you can, at least to some extent, have it all :)
