Kurt and I had 5 of our children enjoy the cabin with us this week. Tyler & Cecilly (fiance), Todd, Trent (and girlfriend Kayla,) Tiffany, and Tevin. We were so happy to be at the cabin with our family! I've missed it. I just loved being there so much!
September is a beautiful month to be at the cabin. It is cool and almost chilly at night to where we have to run the heater, but during the day it is blue skies and plenty of sunshine. We have enjoyed lots of walks and hikes. We drove to Smith-Moorehouse one day and watched as the helicopters for the Box Canyon fire lifted buckets of water from the reservoir to go make water drops on what looked like a fire about to come up over the top of the mountain. The water level in the reservoir and river are so low!
We also had a fun day in Park City!
As a young girl, I remember enjoying a trip to Kamas to Mountain Drug Store for ice cream and malts. I have so many memories of going to that drug store. Mom always let us choose something from the toy aisle to take back to the cabin. I remember paper dolls were my favorite.
The cabin was clean and very nice when we arrived. The new microwave is awesome!!! I spent time going through the Shirl Cornwall family trunk sorting through everything and doing clean-up there. I brought old (20-30 year old) sheets home to dispose of, others will go to D.I. The rest are laundered and ready for the next family member that wants to use them at the cabin.
Dad had a set of stoneware dishes that I took to the cabin. They are cream with a brown stripe around the rim. There were no bowls, but they are a close match to the bowls that were already at the cabin.There are also smaller salad plates. I did some slight reshuffling to fit them into the cupboard. If there is any objection to these dishes being added to the cabin’s dish inventory, please let me know and I will take them back. I love the fact that dad's dishes have a home at the cabin.
I am impressed after reading through the notebook by all the work and contributions made by those that stay at the cabin. I don’t feel like we did that much during our stay, and, of course, the point is to come and enjoy and relax, but we did try to notice things and help where we saw a need.
