bethany, ella, kimel, stephen
it was super windy and in our janky tent
(*we wanted to use this big tent so we could have more fun hanging out, but we all have really nice small tents... so it's our own fault... but who cares, we could STAND in this tent :))
it collapsed on us so many times in the night, and would then just pop back up; bethany and i thought we were gonna suffocate, i felt like we were in an avalanche and there was no way out, and then it would pop back up. one of the poles kept hitting cameron in the head. but i got some sleep, others, not so much. but its a great story right????

boys packing up the tent
*still about 20*F at this time

my little angel bethany
(doesnt the light make her look like an angel?)

cameron all loaded up
still lighter than on the way in with the wood.
we hiked out, stopped for breakfast, had to detour 285 because of a rollover, made it home, showered, picked up B for a bridal shower, went to the shower, came home for bible study, fell asleep watching Away We Go. Then started all over again today :).
PS: another post on this later... but I got a great CookBook for my bday from Camille:
Super Natural Cooking...

Love the pics! Mike couldn't even look at them because he was so jealous. And that was me on MckMama's blog...I love her blog too. I'm so worried about her little boy, though! It makes me so thankful that my girls are healthy!!
