//Camping 2016

Nov
11

Our annual family camping trip was going to be canceled again this year. : (
This time it was because Dad couldn’t get off work. We were going to settle for all being together at the house for the weekend like last year…but, Dustin and Hannah wanted to go camping…so, they made a plan, and those who could,
went camping earlier in the week. : )

The start of the camping crew.

It was 80° on Wednesday. Perfect for getting a little wet in the lake.

It’s so much fun to watch Evan take in and learn all the little things of life.

Everyone came for the wiener roast on Wednesday night. : )

Benjamin bought donuts for the next morning. By his drawings on the box
I think he was just a little excited. : D

Thursday we started the day off with hiking.

There are all kinds of unique creatures, if we’ll just take the time
to stop and enjoy God’s amazing detailed creation.

How many people does it take to figure out a plan?

Dustin and Maggie took an unbeaten path adventure. : )
They had fun climbing up crumbling rocks and ended up with a good view of the lake.

As you can tell, we went for EASY on the food for the trip.
We had just started eating, when it began to rain, again…

…So, we ended up piling inside the biggest tent to finish eating, and then
we watched a movie. IMG_1869

Mmmmm! Nothing like food cooked over an open fire!

On Friday we packed up, went home, unloaded, and then some of us started the weekend party with a good game of Power Grid.

Caleb’s shirt he was wearing says, “I never dreamed I would be a super cool uncle,
but here I am killing it”. Yep, you sure are.

A group game of Catch Phrase. Then a movie.

The late night partiers. (if that is even a word.)

Mom and Charity did most of the cooking for the weekend. It was a fabulous spread.

Saturday we had a two team obstacle course/relay race…
…over the picnic table, under the bars, jump rope 5 times, get a bean bag in the bucket, balance backwards down the board, fill the lower bucket up from the top bucket, then ring the bell for the next person to go.

Once your whole team made it through, your team had to make it to the finish line by working together to always be standing on a rug. This is the team that won!

Next event was the Burnett Family Bean Bag Toss Tournament.IMG_1957IMG_1948IMG_1986

It was so much fun to just BE with the whole family for the weekend. : )

We are so blessed in our family to not only be brothers and sisters,
but to be brothers and sisters in Christ!
