Our Fall Camping Trip

Last week and weekend (Thursday thru Saturday) we went for our fall camping trip with other families from our church. We went to Lake Fausee Pointe and besides the mosquitos it was a great time. The weather was beautiful. I don't think we could have asked for much better. Warm during the day and cool at night. Hmmm...that's what we call "perfect" weather here in Louisiana!!

This is what some of the boys were doing while they were waiting or watching the tents get set up. A new way to ride their Rip Sticks! Abram playing on the playground.

One thing we like about the site we pick is that it has a playground area behind it so we can watch the kids playing from our site. Cai My little monkey...Sarah Pastor Dale learning to ride the Rip Stick. Our pastor likes to have a good time too. Mrs. Pat (our pastor's wife) holding Asa. The twins Corbin Owen Abram by Owen Sarah napping in our tent. Daddy and Asa Silly Emma with Kaylee's sunglasses Our baby tree William hung the twins car seat carriers covered with mosquito netting from the tree between our two sites.The babies seemed to love it. The campers walking by loved it too. Sarah Anthony having his go on the Rip Stick.There he goes with Cade running along side him. Candy snacking on her chips. (Feeding the growing little one in her womb!!) Another Emma

Her family is traveling across the USA from Germany. My chunky monkey William and Taryn taking a break. May getting the hang of it. Cai getting ready to go for a boat ride. Sitting around the fire. We made this our group camp fire spot. Rob holding Asa and being protected from the mosquitoes.This is how you dry out Emma's pants when she has a bathroom accident! Our 3 tents on our camp site Jana (The other Emma's little sister pronounced "Yana")

She turned 1 on this day. Isn't she cute!!! playing the girls Sarah, Emma, and Emma Gathering around the fire Rob helping the boys get their wieners to roast over the camp fire. We had a lot of fun. The kids always look forward to camping. Can't wait till they can do even more to help Rob out with setting up and tearing down. It is a great time of fellowship with all of the families there. We even sing hymns together around the campfire at night. What a special time!
