Camping 2012

Last Thursday, we headed off to Chain O Lakes Indiana for the 2012 Camping Extravaganza!  Those in attendance were as follows: Grammie, Grampie, Chris, Angie, Faith, Callie, Craig, Beth, Caleb, Katie, Eric, Kevin, Benny, and I.  Also known as the Fabulous 14.  We are all scattered about across the USA, so we don't often get to be together.  Also, we are a group of a lot of church workers.  Eric is a pastor.  Craig is a youth director.  I'm an organist.  Chris and Angie and Grammie and Grampie volunteer a lot at their churches.  SOOOOO....holidays are a bit difficult to get together.  We thought a Camping Extravaganza would be a good way to celebrate!

We headed out first thing Thursday morning and returned Sunday evening.  Time flew by too quickly but we had a great time.  What did we do?  Hike, play football, swinging, playing on the playground, roasted marshmallows by our cabin fires, talked, and ate a lot of really good food.  Grammie and Grampie were kind enough to supply our cabins and most of the food for our Christmas gifts this year.

Another highlight...Benny and Caleb are 'birthday buddies.'  Both born on 1-2-12.  This was only the 2nd time they got to hang out together.

Here are some of the best pics :)
