Things I Learned Camping

It was his birthday and he had a blast!! The question who ate who?
Things moved quickly from this

To this.....The smoke from the campfire was unyielding and the wind was relentless. This made for a not so fun campfire experience.
This girl had soccer on Sat morning and she made a goal(well she always makes a goal) and she loves camping
Please notice the boy in the green shirt in the tree....why yes that is Keegan in a tree again. I swear he should have been a monkey. The kid without the shirt is not mine, but a friend.
Piper had to be embarrassed and wear those booties that you see lying there in the photo. The sand spurs were TERRIBLE they alone have made me never want to camp at this state park again.
After a HOT Friday night and Saturday afternoon we woke up to a windy cold Sunday. These are the friends we went with, and Avery.

Lesson 1: Never camp at fIrst LanDing state park again, unless we have no kids or animals along.
Lesson 2: Never camp again with out the Lil' Lemondrop, does this really need an explanation??????
Lesson 3: Refer back to 1 and 2.
Lesson 4: Make sure everyone is on the same page as you when it comes to cooking and being prepared......

Other than that there were memories made and some fun times had. Oh yeah one thing on the plus side, the shower rooms were nice so I give them an A+

***Delena Thank you so much for my lovely surprise in the mail. Your kind words were much needed and appreciated more than you will ever know!!!

Second Wind

For the last month or so things haven't been the greatest for me. I have had a lot to deal with internally. I am still prayerfully dealing with these private matters, but in the mean time I have finally caught my second wind. I have allowed school to slack just getting by doing math and spelling most days, but no more. Tomorrow I will be going at it head first. I need to start putting the pieces back together so my life is something that I recognize. The rest I am leaving to the Lord to get back on track. I thank Him daily for the great friends(who have become my family)that I have to lean on and listen and care so big it makes me emotional to think about. I am so glad I serve and awesome God whom I can run to in all the peaks and valleys of my life. It is truly humbling to know His love and understanding never ceases!!!

This Ones For YOU Fairmaiden:)

A side by side of me and my mom. Although my dad would like nothing more than for one of us to look like him, we all seem to resemble my mom. With the exception of my freckles....those I get from my Daddy!!!

Meet Les

This is Les, I call him Daddy(yes I am 31 and still call my dad, daddy, so?!) he is also known as Pappy. My kids LOVE him, of course cause he is an awesome guy, I know cause I love him too. Since April my Dad has been helping me(well doing most of it) rebuild my Lil' Lemondrop. It is almost done, I just need to get my behind up to PA to put the finishing touches on it. He does this for me cause he is like that, and he does it happily, well most days.....

The other thing about my Daddy you should know is that he has worked hard all his life as a bricklayer. He has worked so hard that he has lost some of his hearing from the heavy machinery and noises that come along with a construction site. This often leads to interesting conversations and replies because he may or may not hear what you are talking about. For instance on one of my birthdays before kids my parents took me out for dinner. The waitress asked him what he would like on his salad and he replied "Pepsi", she looked at him odd but smiled politely. Now mom and I were sitting at the table laughing so hard that we could not correct him and he couldn't understand what was so funny. In the end I think he got Italian dressing or something on his salad. These kind of things happen often.

He also may do some funny things from time to time with out thinking(Daddy I'll save you the embarrassment of the "hamper" story). So this leads me to tell you what occurred this very morning before my parents went home from their visit. I was getting the boys dressed for the day and was looking for wipes to freshen their bottoms with. Dad said there were some down stairs, now I was surprised as I thought we were out of wipes, but I asked if he would get them for me. So a minute later he was back with the "wipes". I said Daddy those arent wipes for your bottom they are CloroX wipes in a decorative container for cleaning up after the boys in the bathroom. He said "Uh what do you think would happen if you would use them for wipes??"......Needless to say I was laughing pretty hard at this. I think it is safe to say although not recommended if someone might accidentally mistake said "wipes" for actual wipes you will be okay.....I love you Daddy!!!

***please note I also LOVE my Mom who is equally as awesome, but just doesn't do the things Dad does. So mom your post will come later about something different, maybe those great bags you whip up!!!
