Summer Camp 2013

We had our Family Camp out at a camp in Syracuse.
We were all a little sad thinking about our first family camp out without Benji. 
He loved these weekends and he leaves a big hole in our family.

We did have a good weekend  planned with lots of fun and activity.
To begin with we had bbq with a square dance in the barn.

After doing that for a couple of hours we were ready to sleep.
The next day we got divided into teams and played games.

The first mission was to find a soft shell for our eggs that we would drop later.
 Then we got busy with relays.
 And balloon crush.
 And random requirements we drew from a bag
 Here are the team colors
The Egg Drop

Here are some of the other activities of the weekend

 Slip and slide down the hill
 Head exams by Dale
 Riding the mini bike
 Dale doing his thing... "cuttin up"
Card Games

Corn Hole

And playing with hair.

 WE are glad these guys are back in the area. 
 And Megan sleeping so peacefully and smilefully
 On Jason and my little adventure on the 4 wheeler we spotted this beautiful Hawk... Eating some rabbit.
And just to spice it up  a bit we got some of the rooms locked that didn't have keys. So here was the locksmith who came to try to help... But couldn't.

 It's always important to find places to get away for some alone time :)

On Sunday at our church service we enjoyed my dad giving the input on Proverbs. It's always good to hear what he has to say. And Mike and Hanna led our worship time. At the end some of us sat around singing songs from our past. It was a glorious sound in this echoie room.

A place to belong... I am blessed to feel that from this clan.
My prayer is that God will use us for his kingdom not just for our sake but for the sake of many more.

And in the end we left with more good memories and sleepy people.
