Guntersville, AL

Fall break was last week. As the boys get older and busier, we find that we don't have too many weekends to spend together any more, so we decided to spend some time on Lake Gunter.

We rented this cabin on the lake.

The view from the back door.

Kenny and Rush quickly staked claim on the hammock.

When he wasn't lounging, Rush liked to play guard dog.

While Mike and Brent went golfing . . .

Kenny and I decided to have lunch at the Lodge.

Rumor has it that the owners spent 4 years and 7 million dollars renovating the place. It just reopened this year. They did a nice job.

The view of the lake was awesome. It was kind of hazy that day, so my camera did not really do it justice.

On another afternoon, Brent and I decided to hike to the waterfalls while Mike and Kenny watched football. We hiked for an hour, but never found it. We decided that because of the lack of rain, it might have dried up.

When we got back to the cabin, Brent and Rush turned into couch potatoes. We then held a "Longest Fingers" contest. Brent won. :o)

Here are my 3 men.

We hope to return in several weeks when the leaves are in full color.
