We have been trying to get together for so long with our good college friends, the Schaaf's. Life has continued to have its interruptions but we FINALLY made it work. Actually, I should say that they made great effort to make it work and traveled here. We enjoyed a beautiful day at the zoo and loved getting to know Grace. She's a cutie and such a hoot!

On our snowman list for this year was "try geocaching."
We had a beautiful day at Pike Lake hiking and finding our first geocache.
Our original plan was to stop and raspberry pick before hiking. The farm was closed when we arrived, so it made finding black raspberries on our hike even more special.

Each year our church life group plans a huge camping trip and even though Mike and I teach in the 3 year old room now rather than attending class, they are still kind enough to invite us! 15 families this year!
We had a great time just hanging out at the campsite, swimming, and exploring.

|Sheer exhaustion! Before we even finished loading up the car in the morning, Lincoln was out.|
We made it home safely - with the kayak - a camping story - and a heart full of gratefulness for God's provision in the whole ordeal. (Our minds immediately raced to an alternate scenario where the kayak completely dislodged on a non-rural highway...with a very different ending.)
