what adventures come our way
I took the six kids up to Cultas Lake to meet my sis yesterday for some fun at the lake! Cliff was working, so I took advantage of a beautiful day and we packed up and went! See they are packed in like sardines in a can in our eight seater van! Not much room left for 'stuff' that is much needed on a day trip! They were so happy to go on this road trip with me!
How I managed to get all six on a blanket at one time?! Not too sure, but yay for me! LOL!
We had a lunch there, and then played in the lake for a few hours!
Four of them enjoyed the water! Caroline, not too sure about the 'pool!' as she called it. She went in for a few minutes and that was it. Courtney, well she hung back in the shade of a big beautiful tree. She really enjoyed eating the sand...and other delights like vanilla yogurt! mmmmm
Heading back home...they all slept!
Well, for the most part anyways!
The best part of the day was driving around the camp to find the campsite my sis was staying at and as I was driving around looking for her site, I actually found a blogger friend or two that I had not yet met in real life! So, I got to meet my friend Irma (whose blog is closed to outside readers, but she is expecting her 9th baby, and she is one of my heros!) and she lead me to Yvonne who was also camping there! And I met some other family members who recognized me from MY blog! How exciting! I love how fun adventures can be! It sure is a small world isn't it!! It was great to meet you both, and your beautiful families! Wow!
I look forward to camping next year with the whole family! The kids LOVED being there, and were so well behaved!
