  2. oohh... that made me smile :)

    and it made me want to go camping again. any free weekends coming up?

  3. What a fun, busy summer.
    Wow, how wonderful that your parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary!
    We enjoyed going to the Lost Sea last year. We've never done the overnight thing though-I'm sure that was fun.
    We visited WonderWorks in August. The kids loved it-we were there for 4 hours and they never ran out of things to do.
    Thanks for sharing your photos.

  4. Oh how I see that our families like the same things. Thanks for sharing you summer with me. May the Lord bless your school year.

  7. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I just wanted to stop by and say hello. It looks like you and your family had a wonderful summer!

  8. Oh, you are brave to camp during the summer! We camped once during the summer (we don't have an air conditioner in our pop-up), and said we'd never do it again. :D We liked being able to be at the beach, but at the campsite it was just too hot out.

    Thank you for the comment, you're too sweet! And yes, I am amazed at digital cameras. :)

    God Bless,
    Miss Emily Rose
