Church Camp Out 2008:

I have to tell ya... I'm a little too tired to get these in any order, so I'll just explain each one and that will be it!:) Rick has been on vacation and we are trying to get some stuff done, but he was sick with nausea and fever yesterday so it's not been what we expected so far.... such is life.

Anyway.. here we go...

Princess and our dear Mrs.F. on the kayak

Lilo floating behind in the blue and pink life jacket.

Superkid floating/swimming in the lake. With our temps over 100 the whole time, the kids wanted to stay in the water constantly.

Gathering for the Baptism of sweet Sandi F.

Singing to the Lord in the heat!

Sandi giving testimony.

As close to dunking as was captured on film!:)

Superkid and his little buddies...
Just hangin' out and havin' fun....
Princess found a fun thing to play with the boys, some drawing battle game.
More hangin' out and "who knows what" conversations...
Rocks, dirt, shade... all ya need.

Setting off to fish in the very early morn.
Sunrise on a golden hill.
Sunrise over the lake.
Don't we have the cutest church buddies ever!?
Here we are again.. hangin'

More sunrise shots.
Little RW smiling sweetly.

Lilo morning smiles around the fire.

Happy about hot chocolate!
I have no idea what inspired this funny face.:*

Princess helps sleepy RW get in a chair. Did I mention it was early?
Superkid at the door of his and daddy's tent. We were thankful for the fence, it was a cliff after that!

Morning hot chocolate smiles again.

Night time bonfire with everyone... AH! My marshmallow is on fire! Yummy!
Before sunrise.
I told you these were not in order.:*

The path down the the water, a good chance for plenty of exercise for the parents of three certain children who wanted to go up and down many times. I had sore muscles... so I know it was workout.
Awww... aren't they cute!? This tent ended up being empty and became a great play tent for the little rascals.
Tricia and I prepping something or other. We stayed pretty busy keeping bugs off our attractive green dishes. The bugs thought they were flowers, then, of course look at my table cloth! Duh! Next time I'm going plain!
Back to that evening bonfire and smores.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
Psalm 139:7-10

Fun, Alicia! Thanks for sharing the pictures. Sorry Rick's sick. Give him hugs from us! Love, Joan

P.S. I'm trying to post on our site every day or so while John's gone. Did you change your settings to receive automatic notification? I'm curious about if it works or not. The one you got before was not automatic - I sent it. So, let me know!
