I felt good enough tonight to go with the family to our church picnic at OC. It was so nice to get out, and enjoy the beautiful weather with our congregation! The kids had a blast on the moon bounce, big slide, and obstacle course. Dustin even tried the boxing...and man, is he good! It's a little scary, I don't know how he became so good at that, but he had fun.
Here are some pics from our week:
Here are the kids waiting in line for the big slide at the picnic:Here is Jodee sliding! We got a picture of Dylan but he went SO fast that it was blurry, and we tried to get a picture of Dustin, but we missed him every time!No need to worry though, we got one of Dustin boxing!And here are their face paintings, a rainbow, a baseball, and "blue" (that is what Dylan asked for, and I told the girl to do whatever she wanted, as long as it was blue, so he got blue stripes!)We had a fun day today, finally, and my sweet kids are very relieved (I think), that I'm feeling better! Dylan asked me probably 20 times a day this past week, "Mom, are you feeling better yet?", and he got the answer he was looking for tonight!

Sunday, after church, we packed up and went to Red Rock Canyon in Hinton, OK.
We camped in a tent, hiked on two trails (and made our own!), and went fishing. The kids thought it was SO cool--the whole thing! We asked them today what was their favorite part, and all they could come up with was, "everything!" The pictures really say it all.....One of their favorite activities was playing in the dirt:Our tent is up!

Climbing the canyon with momma:
Campfire, fishing, and sleeping in our tent! The kids were great--most of their time was spent climbing the wall behind our campsite--it was so neat because they would all help each other, and could basically do it on their own. They were being so big--it's sad they're growing up so fast, but we're enjoying it!
We had some nice tent neighbors on one side, it was a dad and 3 of his 5 boys, (he's a pastor at a Christian church--the kids played together and had fun), and some not so nice neighbors on the other side. I had to answer some tough questions from Jodee--like why does that mommy talk so mean? I felt so bad for those kiddos, and glad my kids had never heard people talk to their children like that before!
We really enjoyed God's beautiful world--what better way to do that than to go camping!
