Sat. night Geof. tells me that we're going camping (Sabbath camping right?) the next night at our friend's parent's property. I do love camping, but I've learned it can be so difficult with kids, and the clean-up sometimes feels not so worth it. Some of my best memories as a kid are camping with family and friends, though. So you see, we do it for our kids. And they LOVED it (and we did too!!)
The property was right outside or Charlottesville and was so beautiful. The whole drive out, Geof. and I kept saying how pretty it was and how much we'd love to retire out here. We camped right next to a little lake, and to our delight, we even got to do some canoeing and paddle boating. Fun!
Here's a funny pic of Dayne and June with our friend's Brade and Emily. No, they're not married. Their spouses were close by. That's what makes the pic so funny. (:
Cole was very interested in the fishing poles and starting fishing right away when we arrived. And to our surprise, he caught a fish on the first cast (or try? Whatever you call it). I was so proud and knew my fisherman dad would love hearing that story. He would of fished all night long if we'd let him. I overheard Geof. telling someone on the phone that he woke up the next morning and said to Geof., "you were supposed to wake me up at 1 to go fishing!". I guess it's time to invest in a fishing pole for Cole.
