Family Camp 2013!

 "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."
-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Following on our Family Camp from 2011, Camp Director Daddy planned a fun-filled and fabulous weekend for us.  From an egg toss to sparklers to a hike at the river to a cookout to adventures with chocolate pudding to our own camp mini-sermon, we had a blessed and bonding weekend...  One of those weekends that leaves you wondering why you don't set aside a weekend simply for intentional family time more often!!!  (As you can see, we missed last year!  But we won't let that happen again!)

Take a look!

Opening Ceremony included sparklers... at a safe distance, haha.

Fun with sidewalk chalk!

 Yes, Meade bought us all Duck Dynasty t-shirts as our camp uniform!

Activity where the boys and I threw popcorn at Daddy's shaving-cream covered face to see how many we could get to stick!

 Walk at the River

Official Camp Pancakes! 

 Chocolate Pudding Adventures!  John showed Daniel the ropes!

Daddy B (or just "B" as Daniel now calls him) and Honey stopped by.

Great Daddy John was our official camp pastor and gave a wonderful talk about Jesus giving us His peace and directing us despite the storms that may surround us.

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go."-Joshua 1:7

Flashback to Family Camp 2011:


  1. Gracious, could John's smile get any bigger? Love that ya'll do camp. Maybe one day we'll copy!

  2. Such nice photos. I liked the photos a lot. I am also thinking to host a family dinner party. But instead of a house party I would prefer booking an outdoor party spot. I was just wondering if you have any suggestions regarding the best Chicago event venues.
