#2 devils lake
(part 2)

Chilling on the sidewalk...



Had to do my iodine test while we were camping..  i drink a ridiculous amount of water so it was no big deal getting 3 liters of urine in a 24 hour period.  Let me just tell you this whole thing was hilarious.  The kids were mortified that I had to keep the tank in the fridge the whole time. I was trying to figure how how we could reuse this big ole orange tank.  I never like to waste things ya know!


They redid the bathrooms at Devil's Lake and they are beautiful.


We sadly somehow ripped this hammock right down the middle...we love our hammocks Auntie Sarah!


This sweet little grandpa was kayaking while his wife was swimming.  He had an extra one ready for when she got tired...



Our new lights that I made.  They are so fun, but I needed to make another string.


nap times are a must camping or we all get crabby staying up so late




killed some time at the outlet mall just walking around


free games at Great Wolf Lodge for the kiddos while you wait for the fireworks are always fun.












God is everywhere...open your eyes.


This was the craziest thing.  We saw these dragonflies every morning by the beach.I felt like there were hundreds of them swarming.












this was so much fun... love to scare the little's.  Hands down the best toy store ever!!




They love to hike and exercise...so peaceful and beautiful!














Praise the Lord this was the only injury.  For our family...that's great!





Rock jumping is always a pleasure..even better.... Dave doing back flips.


Have a wonderful monday!  This last week we packed in 3 play dates, vacation bible school for 4 days which rocked, one great Dr. appointment for Dave, tried a few new gluten free/dairy free recipes that we loved, and got to go help our good friend/babysitter/sister/try on her wedding dresses. 

So much fun.

Summer is flying by...go enjoy it

Devils Lake 2017

We were blessed with a 10 day camping trip at Devil's Lake.  We pretty much had wonderful weather and rain a few days with some loud boomers.  Our site was a tad muddy but the little's seemed to have a lot of fun in it all. I have a few posts of all the pictures, so grab a cup of coffee or water and chill out for a bit.  
 


This is what a rainy day looks like for us.  There is so much wrestling going on, the camper feels like it's going to break with everyone jumping around in it. 




We took a free ferry ride for an adventure.  I was dying of laughter the whole time.  We just drove right off the street (no waiting in line) on to the ferry and went right back again.  The kids loved it.




Another rainy night..killing time.  I saw this little girl drinking her grandma's little half and halfs in the play area. So interesting...


And another rainy day...keeping busy.  The bigs were trying to get to the highest point on these things.  Hilarious.




They love the hiking trails there.  They are soo much fun.  Dave does the big steep ones with the older ones and I hang with the little's.












These two loved all the creepy crawly things swimming in this little pool of water...




another rainy day...entertaining Abraham in a toy store was hilarious.  Poor guy...we kept scaring him!




We had lots of bean bag and ladder ball tournaments too.








Have a wonderful Thursday!
