Family Camp - July 2009

It was our first year attending Family Camp at Lake Retreat and it was a lot of fun. Duncan was still 'catching up' on lost sleep from his trip to Utah with the teens and World Changers, so he spent the first couple of days resting in the cabin and trying to kick the pesky fever he gets when he's overtired. We enjoyed some quiet evenings of reading while the kids were in bed - that was very relaxing.

The weather was great - upper 80's - exactly what you want when spending a week at the lake! The kids enjoyed splashing in/around the water, (canoe-ing & kayaking) and riding bikes along the trails. Blaire Rose became quite proficient on her 2-wheeler and Paige didn't 'bottom out' too often with her training wheels. A few skinned knees and banged up elbows, but no major injuries.

We took a quick day-trip to the nearby town of Black Diamond -
checking out the local museum and original bakery.

We did a lot of swinging
