Camp Reflections 2011

In June, we attended our fifth year of family camp- I can hardly believe it's been that long!
Katie and Sarah (above) before the baptism.
Lovely Barton ladies! So blessed to have them with us again.
Pip being a big boy and pushing Ti-baby! He told me and Shay that we were "too big" to push!!
Annie and Marshall almost did the sac race together. It was so cute!
Relay day

Double A!! We came in 3rd place, I believe.

Annie on Kenny's back.

The relays were so much fun this year- mostly new and very creative.

Tash and Marshall swimming. We had such sunny days that we were in the water every day!
A cute pregnant woman I found on the beach!

Sand castles- with four teams this year!
The theme was "fish" or maybe "sea creature" (I don't rightly remember!).
Tabernacle Thunder did the whale, just as it was about to "burp" up Jonah. So cute!
Our team, Hogan's Heroes (get the pun!!), did Jonah as he was being swallowed by the whale.
The Becomers did a beautiful sand sculpture of a father dolphin and it's baby.
The LADs (Living Active Disciples in 3D) had a fish story about Josiah killing a shark in defense of Kayla and the boys in their canoe- notice the blood (ie ketchup). They even had a broken paddle!

Fishing Derby
Mr. Brooks took Ethan out and he caught an 11 inch bass!
Some of us got to witness a dragonfly coming out of its nymph- amazing!

Miss Annie and I made a dirt cake- yummy!

Annie's photo of me and the cake. : )
Kenny Jr. fishing
Look at that preggo fishing- a true Maine woman! ; )
Whilst others caught fish, Sarah caught a baby snapping turtle!1
And yes, even I braved the pond to catch me a fish! Take a closer look.
Campfire night- my favorite!!
Dexter's "goofy picture"
Evidence of Emma's thoroughly enjoyed s'more!
We were so blessed by the new folks that came to camp this year and with our church family as well. God was good and taught us many things!
