Thrive Camping Trip

We went camping at Lake Nacimiento this weekend with our Bible study group from church (Thrive is the name of the group). There were 18 adults and 18 kids camping by night boating and swimming by day. It was a BLAST for the adults and the kids. Two families brought boats, wake boards and even a surf board to surf the boat's wake. Other families brought Sea Doos and Jet Skis to share along with an inflatable slide for the kids and innertube like things to pull behind the boat. It was SO much fun! Noah rode in a kayak with me, on a Sea Doo with Shan and I and also loved the boat. Jordan rode on the Sea Doo with me and loved being rocked to sleep in the boat. We swam, rasted marshmallows and got to know other couples from church. It was the best weekend. Thanks so much to the Youngmans, the Sathers and the Darms for setting it all up!!!
Here are a few of my favorite shots of the kids...






I also put a few other faves on the permanent right side of the blog page.

Oh, it looks like so much fun! I am so sad we had to miss it. I love the pictures of the kids, and I'm so glad the Woodwards got to come! I can't wait to hear more from everyone.

The pics are great! We LOVED getting to spend time with you guys and I SO enjoy your children. I am also encouraged as I got to watch you parent first hand! Thanks for always being willing to share ideas and strategies with parenting and you walk!
