Thanks to some good friends who lent us a pop-up, we got to camp out. . you can see the path we made to keep dry through what became 3 inches of rain runoff.

A worthwhile trip, it was!

I never thought we would be trampoline owners, so it was a shock to me when Craig said YES to the offer of one from a friend at an UNBEATABLE price.

What a blessing it has been to us since our beach days were fewer this summer.

Thankful to report ~ NO injuries to date :)

Dad’s Big Catch

Dad caught a 5lb Smallmouth Bass while fishing next to the Ms and Grandpa. He claims to have given them the “1st” chance.


The kids were excited to see what was in its belly.


8 Crayfish and still hungry enough to bite Craig’s line!!


Yummy in our tummies, too!
