Take a look at the cabins in 2008.

Cabins have all changed a lot since 1980's.

A step back in Mantrap Lodge History.

Cabins in the 80's used to be "bare bones".
Boy have things changed. Mike remembers
tearing out this carpet when we first
arrived at Mantrap Lodge in l993.
Like they say we've came a long way baby!

This was really "old style" cabin living.
Cabin #2 in the 1980's.

Steps up to the cabins in the 1980's.

Thanks Al Oaks for making copies of all the photos
of the resort from the 1980's. It was fun taking a
walk back in time. Boy have things changed.

A fun "Goat Day" event.

"Jeff should get a goat!"

The Oak family enjoying the 3 day old baby goat.

Thanks Tom & Margaret for bring the
goats to Mantrap Lodge for the morning.

The goats are doing Jeff's work.
No need for a weed waker, just get a goat.

Miss Sky has her 6 month photos taken.

Looks like we might have a "model" in the family.
I would buy anything she was selling.

Wish I knew what she is thinking.
What a doll.

Skylar KaDi Roy is 6 months old.
She is just the sweetest grandchild on the planet!
