We packed up and went camping for Fathers Day with Jim's side of the family.
So, it was fairly easy because we picked a state park that is about 18 miles from home so I could come home and walk the dog and feed the animals, and actually I went to work one day in the middle because it was just easier than getting someone to do my site that day.
We can NEVER go camping without lightsticks.
These are Jim's favorite camping treat to give out to little ( and big) kids.
Ahhh campfire. The best.
which made the whole trip worthwhile for my brother in law.
It should have been two thumbs up but I was hanging onto a knife.
The gorgeous beach at the park. Isn't Lake Michigan fantastic?
During part of our camp trip Vanessa attended Camp Franciscan at our local Franciscan convent. Check out her with one of her favorite "sisters". We sure do have the coolest nuns in our area!
They did art and gardening, music and games, and of course lots of prayer time. Vanessa said one of the neatest things was doing a "Hail Mary" walk in the moonlight. And it was a full moon so it was great timing!
And here is my treasure this past week! Look at all this fabulous chicken fabric from my blog buddy Gizmo!!! http://gizmoquilts.blogspot.com/
I think I will be making that funky chicken quilt after all! Isn't this a fabulous thing to find in the mail? Yup I am totally lucky!
