October 23 Photos

It's that time of year again! October 23 marks the first day that I started babysitting Morgan 8 years ago! And it was also her Grandma Shirley's birthday, so in her honor we like to keep this picture thing going. :) My, how they change.

Happy Birthday, GG!

Happy birthday to you, GG! You have been a faithful follower of this blog. I, however, have not been faithful in posting often. So here are some snapshots of the last few months for you to enjoy. We love you! Xoxo.

More camping!

We did not originally intend to camp two weekends in a row, but thats what ended up happening and we were joined by our friends the Bean's this time at Dogwood Campground near Lake Arrowhead. It was a beautiful place to camp!

Our first night was Janet's birthday. We started off the evening with some roasted hot dogs. :)

Getting ready for a guided night nature walk.

Braided ladies.

The coveted bow and arrow made from a stick found at the campsite, the twine from our bundles of fire wood and arrows made from wooden roasting skewers. It worked pretty well!

Stefan was filming them in slow motion on his phone and the kids got a big kick out of it! (See photo below for still shot).

Swimming at Lake Gregory.

Warming up after the cold lake!

Starbucks while camping? Why not? ;)

Best buddies.

 A nice view to wake up to in the morning.

Wild strawberries. 

This kid. His hands (and most of the rest of him) were this dirty most of the weekend.
