We had such a good time! Camping is always fun at our house . . . never a dull moment here! The view that we woke up to each morning was so beautiful!
Now everybody knows that the first thing you do when you go camping, is start a fire! Christian made sure that the fire was burning, and that there was plenty of smoke to keep the mosquitoes away!
And of course we caught fish! Emily caught the biggest one this day - she's very proud!
Grandpa and Caleb, sharing a few secrets . . .
And of course, the coziest part of the day is always when you get to put on your jammies and cuddle up under a warm quilt . . . Caleb and Averi, all snuggled up in grandma and grandpa's trailer.
We didn't see any bears, but we saw plenty of "bear hugs"!
We were packing-up and getting ready to go home - I felt sorry for the kids, this was the only shade they could find!
Caleb was helping us pack-up and head out!
We had hot days and cloudy, stormy afternoons, but by evening, it would clear up again and be gorgeous. Well, you know me, I can't pass up a picture of a cloud or a good rain storm! Mother Nature never disappoints me!
We all made it home safe and sound, everyone back to work and back to the daily grind! We all had fun, despite the tummy aches, flies and mosquitoes! There is nothing in the world like being in the great outdoors with the ones you love the most! I love this quote by, Margaret Elizabeth Sangster:
"God made the forests, the tiny stars, and the wild winds--and I think that he made them partly as a balance for that kind of civilization that would choke the spirit of joy out of our hearts. He made the great open places for the people who want to be alone with him and talk to him, away from the crowds that kill all reverence. And I think that he is glad at times to have us forget our cares and responsibilities that we may be nearer him--as Jesus was when he crept away into the wilderness to pray."
