Camping @ Cunningham Falls!

We had a great time camping over the holiday weekend~especially since it was accident free! The weather was beautiful, with no rain! Kara experienced sand on the beach for the first time, and wasn't too sure she liked it. We'll have to see if that changes in Destin, Florida in June. There the sand is soft and white. We had fun hiking up to the Falls on Sunday with our friends, the Haughts, who were camping with us. Brenna, is just a year younger than Samantha, and Kailan will be six in July. The Falls and the surrounding woods were beautiful, and the pictures don't do it justice. It was a wonderful weekend!

Samantha's 13th Birthday!

Samantha celebrated her 13th birthday while we were camping at Cunningham Falls State Park over the holiday weekend. We coerced her from her bed around 9 am on Saturday, May 24th, with the bribe of opening a few gifts from her family. She has two more celebrations coming up. One on June 1st with Kathy's family, and then a big pool party with her friends on June 6th. She's really taking full advantage of this 'becoming a teenager' birthday!
