Samantha's 8th grade Formal

Samantha and eight of her friends got together to go to their first formal dance this evening! Everyone looked great! Several other parents stopped by, and we all took a LOT of pictures. Samantha looks beautiful, and so grown up....boy how time flies!

Hershey Park on Samantha's Birthday

On Sunday, we spent the day at Hershey Park--just 30 minutes from our campground. We discovered that Kara is not quite old enough to enjoy amusement parks (as you can see by the look on her face above), so she and Tim left rather early and headed back to the campground. Kathy and Samantha enjoyed the rest of their day, and were exhausted by the time the campground shuttle picked them up at 6 pm. Roller coasters, an aqua show w/sea lions, Zoo America, arcade games, Chocolate World, and LOTS of walking made for a very full day. (What do you think of Samantha's temporary tattoo on her wrist?!)

Memorial Day Weekend Camping Trip

We went camping at the KOA campground in Elizabethtown, PA over the holiday weekend. We had lots of fun! Kara really enjoyed the swimming as you can tell by the pictures, and Samantha re-discovered her joy of coloring, while Kara decided that she liked to color also! :-)
