Sissy kicked back with a magazine taking a break from the heat
S'mores... need I say more?
Trying their best to catch a fish. Those little suckers are fast! But the boys like to go down to the water every morning to try again.
Getting ready to take the jet ski out
Bethany was a trooper and very patient with her brothers, taking them all riding whenever they wanted. Part of riding the jet ski means walking out to it to unhook it. As in your feet touching the bottom of the lake. This grosses her (and me) out to no end. We made a stop by Fred's on our way to Wind Creek for a $1.50 flip flop purchase because she didn't have any shoes with her she could get wet. :) I don't think Bethany has ever been more willing and proud to wear red, white and blue patriotic plastic flip flops in her life. HA!

Naturally the boys wasted no time in setting up a baseball game.
Since we live on a fairly private lot at home without any close neighbors, the boys think it's so cool to have "neighbors" when we camp. We've been blessed to have met some really sweet families. Chris enjoys that part too. He likes weekends best when the park is filled because he likes to socialize. :) I enjoy the social aspect of it as well but prefer weekdays when the busyness of the weekend settles down and it's quiet. 
They've even rubbed off on Sissy and had her wishing she played softball.
Look at little miss city girl with her bare feet running those bases. I'm gonna make an outdoor-loving country girl out of her yet. :) We hated she had to leave. She had cheer obligations she had to get back to. But she claims she loves camping now and can't wait to come back. I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with a certain 15-year-old named Hunter camping right next to us. :) 
Swimming in the rain
FINALLY a fish!
Yes, it's the same fish. If you only knew how hard we worked for that ONE. ;)
With days like those and nights like these...

Who would want summer to end?!?

There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven
