Camping

We finally got away camping...2 nights of sleeping outdoors and 2 days spent on the water. Does life get much better than that? I know a lot of people don't like camping...but it replenishes me...there's just something about being in nature that feels energizing, something about it that makes me celebrate the Creator and feel closer to the presence of our God. And I love that my girls love to be outside...that they build houses for the bugs they find, laugh hysterically as they sail across the water on the tube, they delight in a star filled sky and enjoy finding the big dipper. Simple, wonderful moments.

And then our neighbors had a BBQ today and what an enjoyable afternoon we had just relaxing in their backyard, developing new friendships. Yes, simple wonderful moments is what this weekend was filled with.

Making memories...never a waste! I tried the chocolate zucchini cake tonight. It's been a hit! Girls love it and so does Jon, thanks for the recipe.
