Our First Camp Out

We've been talking about taking the kids camping all summer. So, we made a last minute decision and decided to go this past week. We camped for 3 fun days and 3 restless nights. The weather cooperated to a T. The nights were cool and the days perfectly warm. We had a great time and thankfully no mishaps. This was our campsite. It was right next to the lake and had elec. hookups.

Weston wanted to go fishing one morning immediately after he woke up. I think he had to sit a while longer to finish waking up. He didn't want to bait his hook so, Mel helped him.

Weston was instructing her on how to bait the hook how "daddy said".
The campground had a playground. Which they all enjoyed.

I think this tire swing was their favorite. I could hear them screaming all the to our campsite when Mike was twisting them.Mike starting the fire for breakfast.
Mike cooked us two yummy breakfasts. Biscuits, homade hamburger gravy, scrambled eggs and bacon.

I couldn't resist taking this super sweet picture of Grace. She looked so cozy asleep on the tent floor.

Jordan-Long Time No See

This past week has been extra special for us! My nephew Jordan flew in from Arizona. Unfortunately, he could only stay for five days. He has year round schooling and he has to go back this coming Monday the 21st. Here's some pictures from his visit.Mamaw and Cherish made this welcome sign for us to hold up at the airport. Papaw and Jordan coming out to meet us.
WOW! Jordan has GROWN a bunch since any of us had last seen him! He is 5 ft. 6 in. and weighs almost as much as his papaw. And he won't be 13 til Oct.....
After we picked him up at the airport we took him out to eat and then went Magic Mountain. He won a 100 tickets at this game. He was sweet and used his tickests on his little cousins.

Mel and Weston playing around.
Cherish and Jordan being silly.

Jordan couldn't wait to ride the quad. The downside, they rode them so much the dust got unbearable.
On Tues, we went to Tecumsah. It's an outdoor drama and it contains Ohio history.
