I miss camp.
I wish I was young enough to go to kids' camp or youth camp again.
I'm not. Oh well. Such is life.
But thankfully, our son is in the prime time of his camp life. And thankfully, we have been able to send him to kids' camp with our church children's group for the past 2 or 3 years. He LOVES it!
The camp they go to is WONDERFUL! It's in Northeast Mississippi out in the country on a beautiful plot of land nestled in the deep woods with its own lake and all kinds of other goodies.
No, it's not called "Camp Iwannagothere"...that's my name for it. Because I wanna go there...and stay! ;) This year I (and my mom and Baby Girl) DID get to actually go there to drop him off and go back to pick him up. It was somewhere we truly enjoyed hanging out, if only for the brief time of drop-off and pick-up. By the way, it's called Lake Forest Ranch in Macon, Mississippi. I highly recommend you and your family try to go for one of their Labor Day Weekend Family Getaways if you are able. We haven't been for that yet, but I would LOVE to go.
Anyway, I took some pics there as well as along the way back after dropping him off and on our way back to pick him up again.
Here you go...starting with a little randomness before we get to the camp pics.
|Other hand. Love those little nieces of mine! I have lots of them!|
|Pool time with family. Just love how hats look on baby girls.|
|Seriously. Are you diggin' my nail polish?! Yes, it's all over my thumb, but this aunt doesn't care. lol!|
|Okay, first camp pic for you. This is my Little Man by his bunk (the bottom bunk) with his brand new camp t-shirt.|
|My Little Man on the right with some new camp friends. He didn't have any of our church buddies in his cabin, but he makes friends quickly, so it didn't bother him a bit.|
|My Little Man with his favorite counselor EVER...Justin! And their whole cabin crew.|
|There's our boy in the green headed off with his friends to their first pow-wow at camp for this year.|
|Maw-Maw (a.k.a. Marmie, a.k.a. My Mom) and Baby Girl on the left on the steps of Big Brother's cabin.|
His cabin was the upstairs left side one.
|He was in Hickory Lodge.|

|Sweet baby talk!|
|Just sharing cuteness now.|
|If you've ever seen Dumb & Dumber, she's puttin' out the vibe! ;)|
(If you haven't seen it, you're missing out.)
|Some of her first times to pull up on things.|

|2 beautiful young ladies!|

|My precious mother-in-law took these beautiful pics in her bedroom. Love them!|
The end...for now!
Miss y'all! :)
Until next time...
