Capturing moments

Random side note: This is post #100 for DRRF. I think it is very fitting that the 100th post is doing exactly what this blog was created to do- capturing family moments.

We had the best time on our camping trip this weekend. I’m not sure you can technically call it camping since we put our tent up right next to a ranch house with full kitchen and bathrooms. To KJ, though, we slept in a tent and we were CAMPING.

This weekend was one of those times that I wish would last forever. One of those family memories that I just want to lock away and remember. Some memories are important because they involve significant life events, others are important just because of who you shared them with. While the weekend was not necessarily a significant life event, as the boys are growing and changing I love times when we can just be together as a family. It is so good to be away from all of the distractions of life and watch their little personalities develop. We were so blessed to be able to get away, relax with good friends and make some fun memories.

Weekend memories:
Unplugging from phones, computers, tv, etc

The “Lewis Villa” (our tent was HUGE)

Cbug’s new word “doggie” (he chased and chased those poor dogs)
Riding 4-wheelers Brothers wrestling and laughing
Digging in the sand
Throwing rocks in the creek

KJ's excitement over his own sleeping bag

Watching my friends love on my boys

Enjoying how much our boys love their Daddy


Laughing around the table at meal time

KJ and Cbug beginning their life-long friendship with GCH




Wagon rides

Kite flying


Happy 100, DRRF!
