A Glimpse at Our Family Camping Trip, Part 3

An enchanting view: the creek that runs into the Lake

Enjoying Lake Michigan...and our WholesomeWear swimsuits!


Daddy gallantly rigged up a badminton net off the clearance rack, some $.99 plastic poles, and thick branches to make a "volleyball court" on the beach for us. Hours of fun!


The girls playing peek-a-boo from behind Mom and Dad. You can see a bit of our raft (which we jokingly call "our boat").


Daddy giving his impish grin. ;) (Does it look anything like the volleyball?)


David enjoying the "kiddie pool" creek


The boys just can't get by without shinnying up a few trees, you know! ;)


Wooded dunes against a blue sky!


"Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let thy glory be over all the earth!"
(Psalm 57)

Claire, Thanks for using my picture of the sun and the clouds. Didn't it turn out lovely?

What beautiful family photos!

I flatter myself to say this, but you and your sisters remind me so much of my daughters!

I'm quickly replying to let you all know that yes, I did read (and appreciate!) you comments, even though I never said anything!

Gabe: It's great to hear from you! I've been remembering you in my prayers...

Veronica: You're welcome. ;) Yes, your photos are beautiful. Thanks for letting me use them.

Alice: I'm honored that we remind you of your daughters, whom I'm sure must be lovely girls. :) Thanks for your kind words.
