One More Camping Trip...


















































This weekend was our newly formed annual August camping trip with my Aunts and Uncles and Cousins and kiddos from my Dad's side of the family. Last year was way too cold, this year - well, let me just say that when I saw my car thermostat show 111 degrees on my way down South, I almost turned around and headed back home. Boy, was it a SCORCHING HOT camping trip - but it was lots of fun. Let's see, first two pics are my Uncle Ed (hero of the trip because he brought two rafts for the kids) rowing a couple kids around the river. Third is of Mai competing with the other wee ones in their own version of WipeOut. Fourth is the kids hiking out for Blackberries - Mom made the best fresh blackberry pies ever!! Fifth pic is the kids hangin' in the rafts we tied up to the shore. We could just sit back and not worry about them floating away- they had a blast. They eventually made the boats into their own trampolines and would run on the shore, jump onto the raft edge and then sail into the boat. Last pic is Dad and Baby "Oven" - I love when my dad smiles like that!
