Fun was had by all.
Pizza for lunch.
A quick stop at the 'Antiques and Junque' store where daddy found a 'skinning knife.'
Finally the pool. Splishing, splashing, slipping, sliding.
|The water was nice and warm!|
Swimming was a blast.
|Dunking and diving!|
|Splashing daddy as he 'gets' the girls!|
|So proud she can stand in the pool!|
|Our little dare-devil LOVES the water!|
|Happily 'running' away.|
|Decisions, decisions - go down or not?|
The hot springs were oh so hot and relaxing.
|Bethany ventured all the way IN the VERY HOT SPRINGS! The boys weren't so sure. It WAS HOT!|
A quick trip home to pick up our camper and Apollos and away we went.
A not-so-long jaunt to a hunting cabin on private property in Colorado where we met some friends for a weekend of camping fun.
|finally...... eating s'mores!|
|Gathering sticks for the 'fort'!|
Bonfires, hot dogs, s'mores, rope swings, air soft gun wars, building forts, hiking, dirt bike riding, singing campfire songs, picking flowers, shooting guns, hamburgers, coyotes and wolves howling, fellowship, sharing life, a shooting star, staying up late telling jokes with friends, sleeping in a hunting cabin (boys), even walking the dog - all made for a memorable weekend family get-away.
Looking forward to more of the same in the future.
|Taking mom to the fort.|
|Proud of their efforts!|
|Elijah riding with his friend on a dirt bike -- a first.|
|From riding on the back to riding on his own!|
|Bethany decided she LOVES|
dirt bike riding.
|Riding on her own! Look at her go.|
|Jacob now WANTS a dirt bike! Boys and their toys.|
|The view from our campsite as we headed off on our hike.|
|A deer skeleton we stumbled across on our hike.|
|Climbing, hiking! Such troopers.|
|Cute girl in the back of a|
pick up truck!
|The road back to our truck.|
|Selah's blessed to have a loving and STRONG|
big sister who carried her MOST of the way
on our hike.
|Yeah, they are THAT cute!|
|Country girls in the making!|
|Making a 'house' of sticks.|
|Raking and working.... just because.|
|Pretending to 'start a fire'?|
|Adding some pine leaves.|
|The whole 'motley crew'! (minus one little one and all the grown-ups)|
Our last dinner before our friends left Sat night.
What a blessing and wonderful time of fellowship with great new friends.
