We're Going Camping Now...

Bonus points for anyone who can finish that line. :)

This weekend we went camping with our dear friends the Vavras. We ended up at Cedar Hill State Park after learning that our original destination was booked solid. I'd never been to this park before, aside from going for the hiking trails, and it was pretty nice. We got a campsite right on the lake, and the boys loved splashing in the water and throwing bread to the ducks. They even caught a few fish!

Despite the fact that it rained for a good portion of Saturday, we had a blast. Less hardy stock would have given up and ran for home, but not us! :) All of us just needed to be away from the busyness of everyday life and enjoy family and friends. And the boys couldn't have been happier!

It was a fantastic weekend, and we're looking forward to several more camping trips this fall!

Today I have been married to my best friend for three years! I couldn’t be more thankful.

We got to get away for the weekend while my parents kept Eli and gave him the royal treatment. We so enjoyed the little break in the midst of the busyness of life and just had a blast being together!

I love being married to Eric. I love his selflessness, his humor, his humility, his integrity, the way he fathers Eli, his creativity, how hard he works, and his devotion to the Lord. He is the most rock-solid person I know, unwavering in faith, integrity, and humility in even the toughest of situations. I am endlessly thankful for the blessing of our marriage and for the family we have together.

Happy anniversary to us! :)
