In Random Order

 From our camping trip.  I tried to "glamp" it out, but since this was our first family camping trip my attempts weren't really all that above and beyond.  I learned a lot, and have already started scheming planning for next year.

This was our campsite upon our arrival and set-up

This was the scenery directly behind our site.  Minutes later, total downpour = cold wet night. When I woke up the next morning, the first thing I thought was we need FIRE.  It was like an episode of Survivor.

Of course, I didn't take any pics of the lanterns at night.  But with the fire and the lanterns lit up (@night)  it was very cozy.  Large paper lanterns are not exactly camper friendly.  Will need to find an alternative for next year.

My first sewing project, a bunting especially for the camping trip.  Thank you Josie for acquainting me with the sewing machine.
Some old doiles and baby food jars I had been saving for craft projects

Roaring River flowed around the campsite, and there were lots of fly fisherman.
The girls by the river at our campsite.

Who knows what was so interesting on the ground.?

Oh yeah, a rock!

Baby on my back.  Cooking was always a joint effort, it was nice.

Hungry children eagerly await breakfast.

My friend Jodi brought her 1950s camper.  Loved it. 

Didn't realize the "flys" used for fly fishing were so pretty.  I may have to learn to fly fish.

No explanation needed.  Kids and a puddle.

The river by our camp sites.
Another post to come in the next few days with camping pics.

Just Because

Sorry I have not been posting.  Enjoy this one, I love it so much.  Those are bananas on her chest, and if I don't belt her in the chair she is trying to climb out.
