More Camping

We had camped with friends and some of their family brought kayaks and cousin S had his canoe, so we went out on the lake and everyone loved it.  Later on they ended up going down the Hiwassee with them, and I know they had a wonderful time.  

Jenny, Jamin and cousin R swam across the lake to the other side.  They had not tried it before but with all the boats and our inflatable raft we felt they were safe.  They made it all the way, rested and even swam back.  Tired, but they were so glad they did it.  

Enjoy!

















Makes me want to go back already...

Veggie Tales - Win it!

Another Drawing!!!  Win a new Veggie Tales DVD!!!

Our family has been Veggie Tales fans since their beginning in 1993, and our children have grown up with Larry, Bob and the crew.  With our children mostly grown, we still love VT!


Here is the newest and best DVD they have had in awhile.  It has a super lesson in trusting God and where our true worth lies, in God alone.  The animation was superb as well, it had been lacking in previous DVDs.  No, I am not getting anything for telling you about this, it is just that good.

If you are older, don't be embarrassed, my parents just watched it with us, so go out, buy, rent, share with another family, make some popcorn, and enjoy, "The Penniless Princess."  You'll be glad you did!

Let me know what you think...

There will be a drawing from comments and new followers on Oct. 1st to win this DVD!

Be sure and comment and the more you comment on any post the more chances you are entered to win, or sign up as a friend, aka, a follower.  Share with a friend!
Thanks!  Have fun!

Romans 8:39 says, 
"...nor height, not depth, nor any other created thing, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God, 
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Finally!!! Camping!

I am finally getting around to our camping vacation we took last month.  I apologize for taking so long in getting the pictures up.  We have had computer trouble and are working on wiring a house along with building a chicken coop as well.  Just busy, but that's OK, it's all good when He is in control.  I remember I had a post about not being consistent in the area of blogging because our family will come first, but I will always apologize when I can't be consistent, because that's what I do.  
So, after my feeble attempt of explanations, and hopefully your grace, here are a few pics of the beauty we took in all week long.  

The lake is always an amazing place to sit, reflect, pray, and search out all He has in store for me.  It is so peaceful, ALL the time.  Enjoy the view!  













Now, for some pics of our setup and just lazying around the campsite.  We had bought a new tent this year, and it was amazing!  It was a 16 X 16 and was for 16 people.  I guess it was!  The 6 of us had 3 queen size air mattresses and ALL of our luggage and plenty of room to move around.  What a blessing!  We also have a 12 X 20 screen house that served it's final purpose this year.  We set it at the door of the tent so it serves as the porch for our tent.  The picnic table and our chairs and food boxes stay there during the day.









One of breakfasts for the week.  Mmmmm good bacon!

Jenny was plumb tuckered.  Cute!

We had a wonderful, restful time.  My next post will be of our activities during the week.
Keep checking back!
I promise it won't be as long this time!  Back to wiring a house tomorrow, so may be a couple of days, but soon!

Be sure and follow or send me a comment, I sure would LOVE to know you.  Sometimes just a note or your pic is encouragement.  Thanks!
Be blessed in His Love this day!
