King Family Campout!!!

This past weekend was our King family camp out.  For those of you who don't know us, David is the second of nine children.  Nine children who are growing up, getting married, going to college, going to seminary, having babies, working etc..  It is growing increasingly difficult to wrangle us all into one place, but this weekend it was actually achieved!

It was such a blessing to spend that quality time with the family and the Lord blessed our trip so abundantly.  Everything from the camp sites to the weather to my husband coming back alive from a killer bike ride was perfectly planned by the Lord.
Dough Boy lessons from Daddy!

The girls were fabulous campers!  Yes, all seven of us slept in one tent, but they did terrific. 

It is such a precious thing to be surrounded by people who not only love each other, but who all love the Lord as well.

This trip was the perfect opportunity for the girls to really get to know their precious cousin Talia too.  Talia quickly warmed up to these crazy cousins and before long the were all having a grand old time together.  It was so precious to watch Talia and Ella (who are only 2 1/2 months apart) cracking up at each other!

While it felt like I could camp forever while we were there, I am reminded how thankful I am for flushing toilets and warm showers!  God is so good!
