This last week Dee's Mom and Grandma returned with the rest of the migrating snowbirds to their home in Houghton Lake. Dee went up on Wednesday to see them and I came up after work on Friday.
There is definately something awesome about being at the cabin in the spring. With everything coming back to life. As always we enjoy watching ours birds. Below are some pics of spring around the cabin.
A Northern Flicker rooting around for some buggy snacks. He was tossing dirt all over the place looking.

As far as the plumbing for this project it was easy. Earlier in the year I had completely re-plumbed the entire cabin with PEX pipe. If you have never used PEX don't be afraid, it is so easy to use. I tapped into the run of pipe I installed for hot and cold water outdoor faucets.
The run come from the manifolds in the attic to the faucets.
The shower parts were ordered from Signature Hardware. A simple 36" circular shower rod with center support. It requires 2 shower curtains which I simply close with clothes pins when it is windy. The shower floor is teak 12"X12" ordered from Overstock.com.

Here the girls are enjoying the camp fire, margaritas and beer. What ever happened to smores?
Here the girls are canoing across the lake.
Wouldn't be a post if we did not have wildlife pics.
Our Canadian friends and thier 6 gooslings.
A 2 foot gardner snake. First time I have seen one at the cabin. If you look closely you will notice that he has a full belly. I am thinking that there is one less chipmunk. Brittnay did not like this at all.
As I was paddleboating I was hearing this squeeking noise. I could not figure out what it was until I saw this female Yellow Bellied Sapsucker fly to the tree to feed her young. This tree is on our property.
Here is silhouette of a humming bird
Although he will grow up to be a pest that iratates the dogs , he is just to darn cute.
All in all we all had good time with neighbors, family and wildlife. The weather was perfect and the beer was cold. Truely a great weekend.
