Family Camp 2008

We spent a weekend with some of our church family at Camp Emmaus. It was simply a time to fellowship and connect with our family -- can't wait to go again next year. Thanks for all the memories - Benkers, Bergs, Bomstads, Carothers, Hohols, Mosers, and Steinmentz families!


We spent 5 days camping with Grandma Sandi at Star Lake.
Here are some pictures of all the fun we had. . .
Cheapo innertubes from Walmart were the biggest hit!

Elliott had so much fun splashing in the water and throwing "rocks"
~ actually they were huge snails, but he didn't know any better.

Life jackets AND floaties -- you can never be too safe!

First of all -- we are all okay! Luckily, I saw the guy coming and got as much out of his way as I could. But this is what a van looks like after being side-swiped by a guy on a Harley! Quite an end to a fantastic week at the lake with our family. Look for those pictures to follow soon. . .

In Touch . . .

. . . with his feminine side! Living with 2 older sisters, Elliott is surrounded by all things girlie. From princess crowns to high heeled shoes and everything in between. What 18 month old could resist joining in when it looks like so much fun??? He helped himself to a couple of garments from the laundry basket (yes, he's wearing TWO pairs of girl's panties!) and stole a pair of shoes from his sisters to complete the look. This one might make it into a frame at the graduation table!
