Our Camping Trip...

Thursday, we got up and packed to go
family camping at a KOA campsite.
We had so much fun
as we stayed in our one room cottege.
Just 2 sets of bunkbeds, a small 2 person table,
tiny fridge, stove and sink, and a tiny bathroom.
When we arrived, we sat around in the cottage
while it rained a little...

Then we all walked down to the pier.
I like this photo of me and my precious siblings...

Afterwards, we went to the playground.
Mom and Will played some tetherball...

And Dad and I (being huge on chess!) cracked up at
and really enjoyed the large game of chess they had...

After playing around for a while, we got hungry.
We grilled some delicious hot dogs and brats outside...

We also had some potatoes, zucchini and squash.
It was wonderful eating outside as a family...

After cleaning up and a few other things,
I invited Will to play a game of chess with me
while Mom and Dad started the bonfire...

We, then, headed back and made some smores...

Afterwards, we sat on the porch and sang songs
while I played my guitar...

The next morning, I woke up early and sat outside on
the swing on our porch and had an
hour of enjoying
the country morning and quiet time with my True Love.
Oh, I really enjoyed it!
Later in the day, we all went fishing...

We left at 12 and then ate at a 'Cow Cafe'.
We had a wonderful time as a family.

This morning we got up at 4 and took Dad
to the airport to go back to Iraq.
We had a wonderful time with him here.
Thank you all for your prayers for my dad in Iraq.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

p.s. You can check out Mom's post for more photos!

It looks like you all had a great time.
The giant chess board looks like a lot of fun. I like chess, but I am not very good at it.
I couldn't tell from the picture, but what kind of guitar do you have? I am learning to play. I only have an electric though. I have my eye on an acoustic though...
I am sure that it was hard for your Dad to leave, but you all probably made a lot of good memories while he was with you. I'll continue to pray for you all.

Hi Ally!

Thought I'd stop and say 'hi'. My dad has an acoustic guitar. I think the chord that is 'impossible' to play is 'F'...that is a pain! I'm glad ya'll had fun! The Sorrells are doing fine... I think Mom e-mailed yours about that.

Praying for You,

We definately got a kick out of the chess game! I love family time!

My dad always beats me at chess… I’m not so very good either.
I have an acoustic guitar. I think this time my dad left was easier than the first time. But we did have loads of fun while he was here! Thank you for your prayers. They are greatly appreciated.

UGH! I can NOT play the ‘F’ chord either! lol

We had a lot of fun! I’ll stop by about the award later. Thank you! ;o)

The guitar is fun to play. I taught myself this year.
I really had a great time camping!
