This last weekend, we went to the cabin with the mission of getting TONS of firewood stocked up for this winter. We took Morfar's trusty old wood splitter, and let me tell ya... I LOVE that old thing! There is just no stinkin' WAY we would've chopped even CLOSE to that much wood with out that thing. It's awesome. Mom and Dad came up as well as Nate and his funny side-kick friend, Mark. We had brought up the ranger so we could fell some trees, then drag them up the steep hill to the cabin, saw it up, and split it. It was a good day. Of course, Dad brought his prized potato launcher. That always makes for a good laugh. Dennis, Nate, Mark and Kye are like a constant gong show!

We also sent home a load of wood to Mormor and Morfar for letting us use the splitter. We went to their house for family night and split it all up for them. Something about that old wood splitter makes me feel so nostalgic. Grandpa's had it since I can remember. I can remember my sister's and mom and dad getting wood and spending hours and hours splitting it up to sell it. (I think they made a killing too!) It was a fun time. Enjoy the pics!
