Camp Wasabi!

As you are reading this, we are probably heading home from our camping trip to Crescent Lake. I am showing you pictures from our camp trip to the exact same lake two years ago. This was one of those magical times that you realize will probably never repeat itself again. We took our camper and our family and each of our sons invited a good friend. We called it Camp Wasabi!
Hayden invited Matt. Look how little Hayden was! He has grown so much in the past two years!
Mackenzie brought Brittany. She slept in the back of his 4-Runner and he slept in the guys tent.
Grayson brought Garrett, who for some silly reason is bending down to look shorter than Grayson!
Cameron actually brought three friends, from left to right, Desi, Keith and Lisa. Cameron is on the end.
Eric and I brought each other!
Camping is so much fun! There are so many adventures! Grayson caught this adorable squirrel!
Isn't he cute! We let him go after a few minutes.
We always play cards or some kind of game.
And we sit around the fire and talk and laugh a lot!
We went down to the lake and played. I love this picture of Mackenzie and Brittany.
Here's a handsome shot of Cameron.
They were trying to be models in a GAP commercial!
They look pretty good to me!
Then we had the piggy back races!
We lost Hayden and Matt early on.
Then we lost Mackenzie and Brittany!
Whoops!
Me and Cameron are the winners! Whoot-wooo!!! I love this picture, it's the Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat!. You can see Cameron and I in the back basking in the victory and Mackenzie is checking out his knee. Meanwhile, Brittany is just cracking up!
Who's the best Piggy Back team now????!!!!!
Time for a swim! Well, it was a short swim, that water is just a little too cold!
The time around the campfire at night is the best!
We all sit around after dinner and make smores and talk, it is so fun!
On this trip Grayson and Garrett made a mini barge and set it afire.
We all took a walk in the dark down to the lake and watched it float away. It was really special to watch. Don't worry, we made sure it all got picked up, we didn't pollute!
Kenzie and Brittany enjoying themselves!
Hayden with his torch that he made.
Did I mention our family likes fire? We have a little pyro in us! Here's Eric making a huge bonfire!
Such good times! That's our old dog, Sadie, that Grayson's holding. She always used to come camping with us. This will be Bailey's first camping trip! I bet she'll love it!
Lisa and Desi in their tent. We were trying to make it look like the Parent Trap!
Cameron and Keith chill'n out.
Everyone chill'n out!
What great memories we have at Camp Wasabi! Oh, I didn't tell you why we called it Camp Wasabi. I brought up a ton of dried Wasabi peas and everybody loved them and were eating them constantly. Then we started having Wasabi pea eating contests to see how many a person could eat at once with out burning their mouths to death! For some reason we started saying Camp Wasabi and it stuck. I am not sure if we will name this year's camp anything special, but I sure hope we have a great time! I'll let you know in a few days!

I hope you are having a great Memorial Day today! A special thank you to all the men and women who have served our country and sacrificed so much! May God richly bless all of them and their families!

"Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always!" I Chronicles 16:11

Love, Sharon

Hi Sharon!
Hope you're having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I'd like to ask you (and please feel free to pass this on to your readers) to pray for my sister Debbie. She has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having surgery in a couple of weeks.
Thank you so much for praying!
