Dadz Kamp

The yearly Dadz Kamp was a hit like usual this year. Every year Dave takes the kids camping with just him. He does it to give me a break and to spend time with the kids. I think this was their 9th year and for the past 7 years they have gone to Green Lake Campground.  It's one of our favorite private campgrounds and the kids vote to go there every year for Dadz Kamp.

This year they had a beautiful campsite near the campground's pond.

They swim a lot. Over the years Dave has taught all the kids how to swim at Dadz Kamp. This year was Gabe's turn. He had a blast.

Lots of mini-golf too. Its FREE at the campground so they play 3 or 4 times a day

They eat lots of ice cream too!

Special thanks to the owners and workers at the campground. The kids love going there because everyone is so nice. They are a wonderful family and it is a wonderful campground.

coast guard

We went to Sturgeon May to get a free tour of the Coast Guard boats which is only offered once a year.  Can we all say awesome!  It was seriously hot outside but it didn't matter all the kids were loving it.  Odin was in heaven.  It was a big surprise for him.  He has wanted to join the coast guard for many years now and this only made his dream more exciting.  He started working on the physical requirements already....

Thank you for all you do!
Have a great Friday!

This 13 year old of ours is ridiculously organized.  It's kind of fun to just go in his room and just leave things on the floor or move things out of place. 

Seriously...can we be any more blessed with this cute little star!

We saw this when we were rummaging. This totally cracks me up. I loved it! 

Thank you for blessing us again with gift cards.  They are a true gift especially with all this financial crap going on.  
Thank you so much!

These weeks have been flying by and we're really not doing much but hanging out with lots of friends.  It's so nice. Lots of play dates, reading, tv watching and eating ice cream.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
