We had a great time at the rendezvous this past weekend. The girls had a fun time exploring and making new friends. There were more than 70 participants, half of them children. We had to sew and sew and sew to get ready, but I think the experience for the kids was certainly worth the effort. Brock made some killer food!!! The weather was gorgeous, and the trees were colorful. We had a great time!

Here's the fam standing in front of our tent. I was shocked when I saw this picture because EMMA IS NEARLY THE SAME HEIGHT AS ME!!!!
Maryanne and Jane
Sarah and Kate


Jane was stung by a bee/wasp/hornet something-or-another on Friday morning. The poor girl's cheek looked deformed. It's better now.

We camped next to our friends, the Wrights. There were lots and lots of kids.



Emma, Kate and Sadie, our neighbor


Rachel and Sam

A fabulous potluck dinner. Brock made a wonderful ham and bean dish in a dutch oven. The food was seriously great.
It was a fun time. If anyone wants to come with us in the spring, I think we'll do it again. Now that we have the clothes for our kids, all we need is plates, utensils, washtubs, a water jug, benches, bedding, a fire pit, fire tools . . . I suppose this will be a work in progress for quick some time.

Hey Shannon, I have a weird favor to ask you; I was going to see if you could take a picture of our family for our christmas cards? I was thinking this Sunday after church,are you guys gonna be around? We'll talk, just let me know. The costume looks so cute on Abby, thank-you.

As always, I am so impressed! You all look adorable, and that food looks amazing.

I was going to make a comment about how Jane's bee/wasp/hornet sting makes her look like John McCain, but I'm above poking fun at political candidates. :)

I hope she's feeling better!
