Josiah Skiing

Though I was quick enough to get the longer part in the beginning of him skiing, here he is after trying to take a turn and hitting some waves.  Thankfully he enjoyed it and wants to keep trying!!

Family Fun at Eagle Lake

After coming back from the Black Hills we had a day for Dan to go to work and for me to do laundry and get food prepped and packed...then we were off for a weekend at the lake.  It was a bit of a whirl-wind, but it was worth it!

Grandpa & Alayna

We were able to help get Emma up and skiing and Josiah learned to ski also!

Seth and Madison

Madison brought her dog JJ and there was no lack of people willing to love on this cute pup!

Grandma Camp

Every year Dan's mom hosts a Grandma Camp for grand kids going into Kindergarten through grand kids going into 7th grade.  They enjoy VBS in the morning and various activities at her house in the afternoon.  They love time with grandparents as well as time with cousins (who are also their friends).  At the end of the week we enjoy watching their VBS program and anxiously await giving them hugs after they are done!!

Music Camp

After a week away at music camp Dan and I drove up to the International Peace Gardens to pick up Josiah and another friend from school.  While we were there we enjoyed listening to their concert (it was very impressive!!) and then we toured the Peace Gardens.  Though the 5 hours there and 5 hours back in one day was not the most fun, it was great to see Josiah, listen to their concert and enjoy hearing about the fun they had at camp!
