We love camping! Even more, we love camping with the Bradleys! We all met on August 11th at Lake Sherando to roast marshmellows and watch a meteorite shower!
We had so much fun with the babies, they both were great! Cai only cried once during the night, but it was a perfect wake -up call to catch the most beautiful shooting stars at 2 am! Good morning Happy Bailey! She's a doll! Does Cai look like he's dressed for Alaska? We're prepping him. Yeesh, it was only about 59 at night, but I had him bundled up...maybe a bit too much. In the morning, after a nice warm, no cold breakfast of cold cereal, provided by the Carter's (tee hee), we went hiking! It was a gorgeous morning as we talked and walked around the lake!
It's fun to go out camping, sleeping in the outdoors, but even better to be home sweet home! How could we not love our little Lake Smith! It's just as beautiful view out our window.
Can you not get any cuter than Afton and Matthew?! All of the newbies are cuties, but I love these pictures. We had the best family reunion, thanks Brooke and Shawn & Danilee and Jacob! The theme was relying on the Lord. We had sort of a faith hike, where some of us were blind-folded or had some other type of struggle. I drew "hard of hearing" and well, in went the ear plugs. Honestly, Dad came right up to my face and yelled, "Jewels! You stepped right in it!" ...um doggie doodo on the shoe...you thought I was missing my eyesight. It was nice to "get my hearing back," shortly after that. Although, everyone wished their sense of smell was taken away.
Jarad and Shawn belayed everyone rock climbing. It was so fun!
