8th Annual Campout

Each Summer we host our annual CAMPOUT for our younger nieces and nephews.  And each Winter or Spring I realize I never posted the pictures!

We begin the night with PIZZA!
Get all the tents set up!
ENJOY the summer night.
Roll out the CANDY, thanks to good ol' Sadie, (my bike).

"The Feast" kid style!!

Jake created a HUGE outdoor theater on the side of the carriage house,
with speakers on either side.
They watch movies until they can't keep their eyes open!
Always being sure to fit in "The Parent Trap", (THE ORIGINAL)!!
We make mass amounts of POPCORN & SMORES
and live life through the eyes of a child.

It doesn't take a lot to make a child feel special.
A little effort for a lot of memory!! 

"Please, let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while."

Previous years of fun....they grow up so quickly,
soon they are "too cool" to come to our campout, (makes me sad, but maybe once they hit college age they will come back for the FREE FOOD!!!  That's your invitation Mitch, Carson, Tessa, Lance, Linds and Meg!!  XOXO. Aunt J.2007
