First Family Vacation
Well, we made it! Our week-long trip to Orondo, WA camping with several of our friends was a success! Camping is something that my family never grew up doing and most people would think that it totally wouldn't be in my personality to enjoy something like this. But the truth is that I love camping. Now mind you, there has to be parameters: bathrooms, running water, hot (so no woods camping), etc. This year we even had power and set up our big fan in our tent for Brecken at night!
These are the types of experiences though that Blake and I want Brecken to have growing up. There's something to be said for escaping for a week, unplugging from the world (we turned our cell phones off!), and just enjoying God's beauty and easy pace of life. It's often hard to be with friends that don't have kids, but thankfully Brecken was pretty good all week (despite the 100 degree heat)!
We were TERRIBLE at documenting our trip, but here are a few quick highlights...I just realized as I was about to upload these that we didn't even get a picture of the 3 of us. :(
Thanks for a fun week Kruses, Bergmans, Macks, Patchins, and Olsen's! Can't wait for 2011!
