Fab Cabin! JCP's b-day in the woods!

I had a most excellent adventure for my birthday this year, joined by clarelondon and our fabulous friends Cindi, Mike, David and Marc. I've always wanted to vacation in a cabin. Weather was forecast to be 60 degrees in Wisconsin all weekend. So, of course, it ended up looking like this:

Since Clare was visiting from the UK, I told her not to worry about bringing spare sweaters or coats, since I was driving and I'd bring her some of mine. And then I was so busy packing the car and so excited to see her, I proceeded to FORGET the bag that held my clothes. However, the cabins were beautiful, we had a roaring fire, and I was undaunted.

Elvis greeted us outside Denny's the next morning. I was pleased such a prominent American luminary turned up to welcome Clare to the midwest.

Back at the cabin, games and hijinks ensued. I'm not a gloating winner...no, not at all!

Friends love you even when you forget your clothes and scream like a banshee when you win the game

We also snuck in a little trip to the Ho-Chunk nation, to view the cultural and ethnic, uh...ok, we went to the casino to eat at the buffet and play a few slots.

Clare won 10¢ - don't tell customs.

I was treated to not one birthday celebration, but two! First, the traditional and mortifying all-sing where the staff pours out of the back and scares the crap out of you...

And then, back at the cabin, the flaming malt loaf. This may be more of a British tradition.

Such a fantastic weekend it tuckered me right out.

Sigh...I miss you guys already.

Way OT
I'm glad you had such a great time, but more important, I love your hat!! I've seen you wearing it in a couple of pics and everytime I see it, I tell myself that's an awesome hat and I should tell you that. And then I forget to tell you. But now I didn't. :) So, consider yourself told. ;P

Re: Way OT
LOL, thanks, I figure the hat will help readers spot me in person if I'm consistent about wearing it :D

Re: Way OT
To conventions and stuff, I mean. Not to the gym or the grocery store. That would be weird.

Happy birthday! That looks like so much fun. Is that in the Dells? I stayed in a similar one of those myself there last summer. Good times!

It is in the Dells! It was off-season and deserted, which I prefer in a way, even though that means lots of stuff is closed.

Looks like a great birthday adventure. Reminds me of the log cabin we stayed in overnight somewhere around the bottom of Colorado ten years ago.

It wasn't exactly what you'd call rustic (three bedroom, two bath, full kitchen) but we sure had an awesome time. The guys did all the cooking and spoiled us rotten.
