The kids have now seen snow for the first time. Ben found it to be too cold...

We went camping with my sisters and brothers-in-law, they in their beautiful campers and we in our tent. We had a great day driving over the pass, seeing the most gorgeous countryside God ever made. The kids counted 111 waterfalls on the way there.

My sisters - bless 'em - will forever see me as the baby-brother, babying me within an inch of my life. It means we get good food, camper bathrooms instead of outhouses, and offers of money "in case I don't have enough." Life is good.

The rain didn't set in until the second night around 3 in the morning. Our tent, it seems, is a good one; it didn't leak (nor did the air mats provided by the Splitters). Packing up was messy, but the food was terrific and so were the margaritas.

Had to replace the tires on the van and recharge the air system. We're installing a hitch and renting a trailer for the drive back in just three weeks. Our stuff seems to be growing...

Um...margaritas on a camping trip? Where do I sign up? :)

Hope y'all are having a great time!

Lynette, I sent Rob's business cards and the FLVS codes off on Monday. Let me know if you need anything else!

Hey Guys!

Bekah was SO happy to get Aly's postcard!! It made her day -thanks so much for doing that.

Malissa Young and I were talking Sunday about how we're tired of going to church and not seeing you. We sure miss you!

Hope you were thinking of us all sweating bullets in ninety-something degree weather while you were in the snow! :)
