In the last post, we filled you in on all the players of this saga. Well, we at least let you look at their faces. To name them all would take quite a while . . . since this gang keeps growing.
Speaking of gangs . . . this one looks pretty scary. Believe me when I say that I know what I’m talking about! I got in their way one time.
End of story.
Now this looks much more peaceful and so girlish!
Such sweet little ladies . . .
Mom’s back flowerbed. I love it!
The Awesome Cooks.
*cough* I know that I’m not in the picture as helping these great ladies . . . but somebody had to take the picture. Truth is, I wasn’t worth much since I was still soaking in just being with everyone and wandering around taking pictures and generally making sure I wasn’t missing out on anything great!
We did lots of eating. Plain folks are known for good food.
I love little boys.
Ornery as mud, and trying to be brave men . . . but we mamas know how sweet they are underneath all that ego.
My brother, Matt, from California. The one who livens up the party everywhere he goes!
And they so prettily posed for their aunt!
This was not a good place to be if you desired to stay dry.
We built a deck for Dad and Mom on Friday of the campout.
Maybe I should rephrase that.
We women kept the workers alive, fed, and watered so they could finish the job. And we cheered them on!
It was Jana’s Canon Rebel against mine all weekend long!
We made Dad sit down . . . especially considering he was still recovering from open heart surgery.
That must have been some seriously hard work.
My beautiful and sweet mother.
This is one of my great-nephews and he reminds me so much of my own little fat squishies over the last 14 years. Oh, I’d love to hold him again!
My sister’s “clothesline”.
With six kids and about 90% of them wet . . . you need a place to dry their britches.
The Big Pow Wow.
Aren’t they adorable?
There were many great conversations over our delicious mealtimes.
When you don’t know how to set up a tent . . . consult Google. 🙂
Little blondies . . . big stories.
We enjoyed some awesome volleyball games! Made me feel rather young again.
Now it’s the end of the first full day and little kids are tired, dirty . . . but oh so happy.
Good night all.
