Take 2...

This last weekend the Lorick family embarked on our second camping voyage! Since we are still so new to this camping stuff we decided it would be wise to glean some wisdom from the pros! Ronnie and Carol Yarber brought their camper out and joined us for a couple days.

The Yarbers are the real deal when it comes to their faith, sharing Jesus, loving their family, and of course camping! They totally out did themselves for us with great food and even better fellowship. Carol showed me all the appliances and gadgets that make camping easier and more fun. They were so sweet to think of our boys...their camper was loaded with Capri-suns, cookies, fruit, marshmallows, and so much more!

Nathan and I had the best time visiting with Yarber's after we put the boys to bed each night. I love to hear them talk about the ways that God has used them through the years...I love that after serving him for most of their lives they have never lost their excitement and joy over the gift of salvation!! We are so grateful that they would choose to take time to pour into our lives!!

The campsite was on a lake with a beautiful lake area. The plan was for the boys to just play in the sand and get their feet wet since the water was so cold.

Kolson's first time in the sand!

I am sure you can guess how long that plan of ours lasted...

They didn't seem to mind the freezing water one bit!

We even went back to the beach later that afternoon for another dip!! Now I know that I should always keep swimming suits and sunscreen in the camper...of course Mrs. Carol came to the rescue with her sunscreen!

I love that camping provides so much time for us to just sit and enjoy each other! We had such a great time roasting marshmallows and talking around the campfire!

Camping trip #3 here we come!!!

Looks like so much fun!! Glad you had such a great time away - I love the "getting away" part of camping!! So much more attention for little ones and friends!!
