Labor Day Weekend

Well, I called my parents house the other day and my wonderful father answers and says to me "Don't call here until you post something!" So I decided to make the man happy and finally post pics from our Labor Day Weekend- camping at Oolagah Lake. We had a wonderful time yet again, we always do when we all get together. The weather was beautiful and the kiddos enjoyed every second of outside time. They were all so dirty at the end of each day, I don't even know how a person can get so filthy. They also enjoyed going out on "Unci's" boat. I didn't go so I don't have any pictures to share. I know Sally took some so maybe she'll post the pics. I couldn't believe that my timid Lily loved riding the boat and the inner tube. Just goes to show you that you never know what Lily is going to decide to do.

We may be camping, but what would the kids do without their portable DVD players?!
Aunt Sally and Cooper having a stimulating conversation.
Lily and Ella love each other so much, they each say the other is their best friend.
Aunt Mandy with Coop and Sam. Don't you just love how high Sam likes to wear his shorts?! :)
Sweet Ben enjoyed the eating part of camping the most, as well as his Aunt Annie!!
Yes people- I am a WHITE ghost!!!! Let's just blame it on the pregnancy or my thyroid (you had to be at our Ladies Weekend at church to get that one)
Coop and Lily are enjoying a little lunch and a break from the heat.
Sam, Josh, and Lily are enjoying their time together.
Max was ready to build the camp fire!
Aunt Sally brought the yummies for smores. Emily had a great time roasting the marshmallows. Check out Coop's face, not sure what he's doing.

Lily is still very shy around Uncle Bert. He's the best, I don't know what her problem is. Bert does his best to win her over and I just know that someday she will LOVE her Uncle Bert. She wasn't aware that he was sitting right behind her so we got a good chuckle taking this pic!
Cooper kept us all entertained during the weekend with his new funny faces! He can be quite the entertainer when he feels like it.

Wow, Cooper looks so big! Lily too. I'm glad you had a good time on your trip, but I was more glad to see Lily Sunday. I missed that beautiful little face. I had to snuggle her up during Sunday School a little extra to make up for lost time!

Taylor & Jessica said...

Maybe my first camping experience should be with your looks so fun! Your dad saying that cracked me up:)

Yes lets blame the thyroid for everything! I love the last pic of coop!

Mandy said...

Finally, I am going to tell dad to tell you things like that more often! Great pics!

Becky said...

Great post - no more waiting for two weeks to post! :)

Melissa said...

I have to reward you and Katie for going camping. I don't think I would have made it. Hanging out with family makes it all worth it.

Fun pictures. I really like the one of Cooper! I don't think I've ever seen that face before.
