Family Camp 2018

Another amazing family camp in the books! 

It was such a great week... lots of beach days, park days, games, hanging out with friends and lots of church! We all love family camp and this year was no exception :)



Every afternoon there is a fun activity planned for the kids. Zack was the only one of our 3 boys that participated. Jakob and Levi are in youth now 😉
Three legged and wheel barrow races:





Then to the beach!


Lots of swimming to the yellow dock!


Another day - bubble ball:



Back to the beach!




Sometimes it rains... 


More sunny beach days:


Always a favorite - smores:


Jakob spent most of the time with his friends, boating and hanging out by the fire at night. Lots of really great memories for him :)




"Boat" rides and fishing with Opa:





 And lots of beautiful sunsets:


I'm so thankful that we get to experience this every year :)

Amy & Deb's Las Vegas Vacation

 Debbie & I went to Las Vegas to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We had so much fun! We tanned by the pool, went shopping, did a few touristy things and spent hours laughing. It was a great trip!

Weekend at the Lake

We went to the lake this past weekend to do some work at the camp. We are getting a new playground and Michael and Jakob volunteered to help. I can't wait to see the playground when it's finished, it's going to be so much fun for the kids!




This crew got a lot done! (Still lots to be done before camp though!)


While Michael and Jakob worked, Levi and Zack played giant checkers:


Levi rode the motorbike:


and Zack the quad:


No rest for Michael! Once he was done with the camp work, I put him to work ;)
Slowly but surely our cabin is getting finished.
