Camping trip/The Third

You might be tired of blog post about our camping trips, but for memories sake, I post away. :)
A couple of weeks ago, we went on our last camping trip with the fam. This time, the sun shined, and we soaked it in. I think knowing that this was our last summer camping trip made us enjoy it even more... if that is possible.




















We did more than just lying on the beach, but when we were swimming, I was in there with everyone... so, no pictures of that action!
Also not pictured are the many walks/bike rides that we went on, and the games of tennis that we played.

Of course, as with every camping trip, we ate good!


















One my highlights from this trip, was the boat outing with these three. We did a few water sports, then just parked the boat in the middle of the lake, swam, played "King of the tube", and just chilled.



Brooke went knee boarding for the first time! She loved it!



On the third day, we noticed the storm clouds rolling in, and saw from looking at Radar, that it was going to be a bad one.
So, we went out to eat, then headed to our Grandparent's house to wait out the storm.
We have been in our camper during a bad storm before, and we didn't want to go through that again!


Turned out to be the worst storm the town had seen in fifty years. Thankfully, our campers were on the edge of it, so they stayed upright... though Josh and Becca's camper moved back about a foot.
The next day we helped out some friends and Henry and Megan with clean up.
Go to Megan's blog post to watch a video from that day.








That's it!
Until next year...

This is the life

Summer life.
Busy, happy, I love it.

Yesterday we (the older sibs minus Meg) went boating in the evening.
I don't know how many times we shouted "It is so BEAUTIFUL!" out into the vast lake, but it was a lot. Because it was. Beautiful I mean.
There was no wind, so the water was so calm, the weather and water were both warm, it was perfect.

We had so much fun.
