Pilgrim's Rest 2012 Part 2

 Look at all of those arrows and blessings!!
 Gabe-ah! His first year at camp. And he's one happy camper! ; )
 Caleb and Sarah playing with the little ones. One of the best parts of family camp is seeing people of all ages enjoying one another as they interact with each other. Such a precious thing!
 During the fishing derby, Pat was the only one to catch anything! Later on in the day, though, Lance caught a bunch more. Too bad it was too late!
 It was hard not to laugh during the sessions as Ti was our entertainment! Above, he's doing a sword drill with his Bible and below, he's trying on Nanny's glasses. What a ham!

 Beautiful Dunn's!
 Tony's perfect marshmallow toasting! He should charge!
 The girls had a lot of fun with this wagon this year! They started by hauling water and other small things and ended by hauling people- Dad and Tony among them!
 That's homeschoolers for you! ; )
 We ate dinner outside with Lance, Hannah and Abbey while some went fishing! Ethan caught a couple of big ones!
 Below, two caring uncles look after their niece and nephews.
Thus says the Lord, "Stand in the ways and see and ask for the old paths, where the good way is and walk in it, then you will find rest for your souls."
But they said, "We will not walk in it."
~ Jeremiah 6:16

What a refreshing, edifying and strengthening week family camp was this year. The Lord used something that could have been chaotic to draw us closer to himself and closer to each other. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our brothers and sisters from Massachusetts better this year and also growing closer to our church family. God is good!
