One Dirty Weekend!

I don't really consider myself a "girly"girl...but I do prefer dresses over jeans! I've always been the type who can dress up or down, and I can get dirty with the best of them. Well, this weekend was all about the DIRT!

Kelly and Asa have been riding dirt bikes together for a couple of years now. They usually go camping at a motorcross campsite called "Durhamtown" a few times a year. This time Kelly wanted to take the girls with them! I've done my share of camping, and I really don't mind it. I just wasn't sure what to expect with this trip. It turned out to be one of the best weekends ever! Lots more fun than I expected! We were suppose to stay in a cabin the size of a large closet, but the first night we got upgraded to "Green Acres"....we even had our own bathroom in it..WOW! The second night, we had to move to our very tiny cabin. No bathroom...just bunk beds and a space heater! I can't say that I really minded it! The entire weekend was spent outside. The boys rode their dirt bikes over and over. When Asa first started riding with Kelly he had training wheels on his bike, but this time he was all on his own. They started riding early in the morning and wouldn't stop til dark! It was so sweet to see Kelly and Asa spending time like this together. I could tell how proud Kelly was of Asa, and to see that he just loved being there making memories with him. Iris and I loved sitting by the campfire and cooking S'mores, playing Corn Hole, or taking Pixie for walks. There was no TV, no phone, no nothing...which I LOVED! I didn't even see one person with their IPhone out...Yay! I got to wear sweatpants the entire time, and NO makeup! I love that kind of vacation!

Can't wait to take this trip again!

Cross Country Fun

Iris-Anne ran Cross Country for BBS this year and she did a great job(her best time was 1 mile in 8min33sec.) I am so impressed with how well all of the kids did and it was really sweet to see them support each other! Looking forward to Track in the Spring!

Sweet prayer time before their meet!

Fort Mountain Picnic

Every year our family goes to Fort Mountain for a picnic. We eat lots of good food and then we go on a hike to try and walk off
some of those calories!!! Iris and Asa love getting together with their cousins...they all play together so well!
This is a great way to kick off "Fall"!!
