Zechariah 13:9

And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. Zechariah 13:9

Camping and 20th Birthday

  • Camping and 20th Birthday

    Each year my immediate family always gets together in August and usually goes to a cabin up north.  Because of living on a farm, we were unable to join them the last couple of years.  This year, it was decided to do something local, so my older brother, Kevin, opened his home for us to camp there.  We were able to camp out, but still do AM & PM chores.  His "campground" contained 3 campers, 2 tents and some sleeping in the house.  We gathered together Friday evening and dispersed Sunday afternoon.  We had a great time together - shared alot of laughs, had some serious discussions, played fun games, rode bike, enjoyed the campfire, and had delicious meals.

    Kelsey turned 20 on Sunday, so we had cake and ice-cream to celebrate that special event.  She is no longer a teen!  But she is a very good wife & mama!  We are proud of her!

    One source of entertainment was Piggy and Prissy.  Piggy is Gordon & Kelsey's pet pot belly pig (she's even potty trained!) and Prissy insisted on herding her, and playing games by nipping her tail.  Pigs can run faster than you think!  Her escape was to jump in their tent and hide, then she would look out to see if the dog was waiting.  She should've just left out one of her LOUD squeals and that dog would've ran for her life!

    Finally, we were very blessed to have rain all day Sunday.  It had not rained for 3 weeks and the crops was desperately thirsty.   It was wonderful to wake up at 4:00 in the morning to hear the raindrops on the camper roof.   So grateful for family and for the ability to remember and cherish all the memories.
    Until next time...............
