Wordful Wednesday ~ Family Camp 2010

Laundry ~ done! Clothes are put away, the trailer is clean, annnnnnd, I even had a spare moment to go through some photos to post. Woohoo!
Brace yourself, I took a LOT of photos. These were the few {ahem, 17} that made the cut for you fine folks ;)

The girls were so excited over this monster that Jeremy caught. Um yeah. There was a lot of fishing that took place last week. Did I tell ya, or did I tell ya? ;)

Mom served ribs while we were there.
Makenna kinda likes them.

Can you tell?

These little guys were everywhere. They look real cute and sweet . . . until one climbs up on a table, chews through the screen of your trailer, and hauls off with your dinner.

Kam LOVED camping. She is my outdoor girl.

Once our reunion started the kids were kept busy with crafts and games. I love that my aunts are so talented and crafty. They spend months preparing for our reunion, and make it so much fun for the little ones.

It's just not summer without otter pops ;)

Can you tell which color Kenners chose?

My Aunt Pat was the popsicle distributor.
I tell ya, that one was as big as Kam!

Jaymes ~ the Washers champ ;)

Look at that face!Mona could not get enough of the dirt. She literally plopped down in it and rubbed it all over her arms, legs, and face. If Kam had done that, I'd have had a panic attack. Annie was pretty laid back about it. More power to ya, sister!

Mona and Kam reunited. Oh how Kam loves her cousin. She would squeal with delight every. time. Mona came near.

Of course there was marshmallow roasting. And S'mores eating.

And now, the view of the lake from our camp site . . .

We witnessed some of the most gorgeous sunsets. And you know I had to get some shots.

Wanna see?

Wait for it . . .

Wait for it . . .

Oh geez, is anyone still reading at this point???

Oh it was gorgeous. Dirty. Dusty. But, gorgeous!

LIZ!!! I can't even tell you how breathtaking those pictures of your view are...oh wow. I love all of the pictures, especially with the ribs and the dirt! It looks like you all had a great time and that is very sweet of your aunts to have crafts all ready for the kids. Thanks for sharing.

Those last few pictures are gorgeous for sure! I don't think I've ever seen a mountain so pretty! It looks like everyone had a ton of fun....the rib picture is hilarious! And the girls camper shirts are adorable:) Is that a squirrel or a chipmunk? I know for a fact that squirrels are evil...we had some attach our tent when we went camping one year!

Wow those last pictures were definitely worth the wait. I loved this post. That was some fish that Jeremy caught. Wowzer. I cannot get past Mona rubbing dirt every where. Um...just a little gross for this germaphobe. Dirty...but super cute she was.

Happy Wednesday!
Now that looks like a camping trip I would want to go on. Each picture was perfect. I would pick a favorite and then I would scroll down and the favorite photo would change. So thanks for sharing all of them.
The sunset photos were amazing. Those should be on a postcard.
Thanks for linking up this week and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous pics!!! Those mountains are breath-taking, especially at sunset! You're girls are absolutely adorable! I LOVE family reunions! My family usually hosts our BIG family reunion every 2 years. My mom and I have sort of taken the reigns, so to speak, the last few reunions and it has been so much fun planning for them. We have another one coming up next July and we're already making preparations. Can't wait!

Thanks for sharing your pics!♥
