Robin Hill

Pictures from our camping trip to Robin Hill July 4th weekend.

There were some people camping a few spots down from us who had a dog that was bigger than Jen. He was a gentle giant but he was enormous!!!

Uncle Chris and Jen riding the tandem.


Of course we played bingo. Both Chris and I won some cash that night!

Ron and Chris joined a horseshoe tournament. It was hot and they lost. The end.

We did a little fishing and once again...Jen was the only person to catch a fish. And she caught 2. That kid has a knack for it and it made the Big Boys try real hard to catch one too. But they didn't. Muahahahaa!

All in all a pretty great weekend of fun at the campground!

Remembering Summer

I guess Summer is officially in the books what with the dreary rainy days we've been having (along with the 50 degree weather. What happened to FALL people?)

Boo!!!!  Hiss!!!!

Of course I'm totally behind on posting all of our fun Summer activities here on the old bloggy. Some things I'll just skip but other things (like our camping trips) I HAVE to get posted.

Man. Sometimes being lazy really does suck.

So lets say goodbye to Summer while we take a quick look back at one of our most favorite activities of the warmer months...swimming and the slip n slide.

Blueberry picking

  Earlier this summer the girls and I (and one of Steph's friends Courtney) headed to Weaver's Orchard to do some blueberry and raspberry picking. I think its very important to buy fresh food from local farms as well as teach the girls about eating healthy and picking your own food. Nothing tastes better than ripe fruit directly from the vine! Jenny agreed with that statement - - she ate more than she put in the buckets. I thought she was going to get sick!  


While we were there we also had some ice cream, shopped in the produce market, played on the playground, and fed the animals.

  It was another great summer day!

Mini golfing

I took the girls mini golfing at our local golf course one day during the summer when the boredom seemed to be getting the best of them. It was a bright, sunny, and very HOT hot that we were the only people on the course the entire time we were there.

The course is a really nice one, you can tell that they care about it and do the upkeep required to keep it looking I don't have very many complaints.

Except for one.

Would it be too much to ask for a little tiny bit of shade here and there for us more.....*ahem*......"fair skinned folks"? I mean it when I say there was not one spot of shade to be found in that entire place and by the end of it we were all dripping with sweat.

But we had fun regardless.

The following series of pictures is really funny. Jen putts the ball and makes it into the hole, but what she doesn't know is that the hole is a pipe which leads to the bottom section.

She walks over to the hole to get her ball and realizes its not there.

She panics.

Notice the blue ball on the bottom layer all the way to the left. She obviously hasn't noticed it yet.

She starts to cry. She thinks she has lost her ball forever. The ball is still sitting there just a few feet away.

Steph finally finds it and explains it to Jen, who is "traumatized" at this point.

"Traumatized" for all of 5 seconds until she's back to her happy self again. This kid is ALWAYS in such a good mood. Happy, smiling, laughing, telling jokes...

Good times!
