I spent a week a Young Women Camp.
The day I arrived home, David & Holly & kids flew in from Wisconsin. The next day we hosted Hunter's 1st birthday party.
Polly & Eric & kids came to visit mid-week so they could spend time with family from far(ther) away. Lots of cousin love going on...even if they don't like posing for photos!

And Anson found his toes!
Meanwhile, the Young Women came over and packed food for the backpacking trip later this month. Yay! We have enough girls to go on the hike! I had been afraid that we wouldn't be able to go. Stay tuned for photos and stories at the end of the month.
Last but not least, Mark and I enjoyed our annual canoe-camping trip at Sparks Lake last week. We were the "guides" for a scout outing. We camped near the boys and enjoyed some fun with them, but we weren't in charge of keeping track of them or feeding them. We had such a wonderful trip.
You can take as much gear as you want with canoe camping...all the comforts of home!
I love the little camp kitchen we bought last summer.
The view from our camp site down the cove to our neighbors...the scouts.
The lake water level was high this year after so much snow and rain this spring.
On our last day we took a day trip to Newberry Crater and walked along beautiful Paulina Creek.
