Blue Hole camping 2012

 A little bit of sass from our Hopie girl:)
 Taking photos to be used at our Adoption agencies annual fundraiser... this year Tim Tebow's mom, Pam Tebow will be speaking...  It should be AMAZING!
 Chilling on the beach with Anna, Hope and Lee...
 Me and my love...
This is our first time to REALLY get the pop up out and working... we have tried a couple of times and it just hasn't happened...

Well, let me just say... we have gotten rusty as campers... or maybe it is just the fact that we have 2 more kids than the last time we camped:):)  It is so dry here... you wouldn't believe how much dirt we attracted...

We loved the pop up, but let me just say that a 6 man camper makes for some cozy sleeping with 8 people:)

We had a ball ...
  • skipping rocks for hours on end...
  • having a dance party in one half of the pop up...
  • watching the hail fall out side during a thunderstorm... (I truly think that our family camping FINALLY  brought rain to our dry drought experiencing land:)
  • heading to sonic for half price shakes...
  • helping a stranger look for his wedding ring in the lake that flew off while playing football with Caleb... we never did find it... it was like looking for a needle in a haystack..:( bummer...
  • literally being locked in the campground overnight...( now that was different:)
  • seeing 3 fellas sneak in the campground late at night , wearing headlights, and spearing something in the lake (truly, it sort of freaked me out!)
  • eating lots of fried pickles...
  • enjoying the company of friends one day...
  • having our dirty dishes licked clean by some varmints... eeewwww!
  • reading a book together late into the night
It was really fun... We even had a chance to have a family meeting. We need to do those more often:)  It is nice to give everyone a chance to be heard...

 I think the next time we will need to stay a little longer... It is a lot of work just getting to the campsite... I think we need to enjoy it a little longer next time... I will post some more pictures from the camp out soon:)

Oh it looks like so much fun! We have been shopping for a camper for a while and just have not come across a good deal. Love your pretty swimsuit :) SO glad you had a blessed time my friend.
