We decided to go camping this past weekend with my two youngest sisters. We were long overdue for a camping trip so we were all so excited to go! It was such an amazingly refreshing time and God was so faithful the entire way. We decided to head up to Yellowbottom campground. I had never been there before but David had camped there as a boy. The campground doesn't take reservations though and we had to leave later in the day so we were rather nervous about getting a place. It was a long winding road and we were rather slow going ( pulling a trailer with our minivan and have to pull over for car sick girls) so we got passed a few times. The whole way up I was praying " Lord, please just keep one place for us!". God was so faithful and as we pulled around the campground we found the last site in the whole place! Several cars pulled through right after us but had to leave. We were so thankful!Set out some chairs and then you're officially camping! Havi is still not walking and so she was mostly confined to a chair the whole trip. As bad as that sounds, she really had fun!
Building our first fire!

Let me tell you, camping with a ratio of 4 big people to 3 little people is AMAZING!!!
Making doughboys for breakfast
Bethany was declared the doughboy queen. " Doughboys are my favorite favorite BEST food!"

It was Rachel's sixteenth birthday while we were camping!
Nothing like birthday cream puffs and frappicinos!
Heading down for some serious swimming
Auntie Rachel with Bethany Rachel
Our one injury of the trip. Lydia stubbed her toe really badly but was very brave about it. Another moment were God was great: We couldn't find the keys anywhere to unlock the car and get the first aid kit. David and the girls were searching while Lydia, Bethany and I prayed together. As soon as we said "Amen" we heard the keys jingling!
It was such a wonderful trip. We love spending time with our sisters! Rachel and Anna are so much fun and so helpful! We love spending time together! It is such a blessing to have time to remember how much fun it is to just be together and have adventures. It is so much fun to watch the girls loving life, exploring and learning. Makes us want to go back next weekend!
