Ok. So I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve posted I have to decide what to actually post about. I guess that means we’ve been keeping pretty busy. My biggest adventure recently was girls camp. I, along with a handful of other adults, took all the young girls (12-18) in our church for a little week-long adventure in the mountains. When I was a young girl this was sometimes refered to as “rough camp”. It cannot be called that any longer without lying. This place was built with youth and family groups in mind. Everything was organized and kept very clean. And although it was not as nice as home (public bathrooms, waiting in line to shower, bugs, dirt & wooden bunkbeds) it was a far cry from tents and outhouses. So beyond the fact that I had to sleep in a sleeping bag and learn how to balance my dirty clothes, clean clothes, towel and shower supplies on only one hook in the bathroom I had a very fun time. I don’t even think I got a single bug bite thanks to my constant application of bug spray.
And for the visual interest…
I got home from camp the afternoon of the 4th and have been busy ever since. Here’s a few more photos of some of the fun things we’ve been doing.
Milo loved to swing the sparklers in circles, while dancing around and making rocket/airplane noises.
Mason’s sparklers ran out right as I was about to take the picture. Either that suprised him, or he was upset at the fact that he could no longer try to light items on fire. And by “items” I am refering to the trees, plants, sparkler boxes and whatever else seemed exciting to watch burn.

We invited a friend of Mason’s with us for a trip to the Dinosaur Museum. This week the museum was celebrating it’s birthday. They had some fun extra activites and crafts for the kids to do. Here they are showing off the face painting they got.
Milo wanted to take his picture next to this dinosaur painted on the wall.
