Camping Trip and first minor league game!

Hayley and Jerry had a great time on her camping trip a couple weeks ago. Thankfully Jerry took some great shots so I could experience it with them :-) When they first arrived Hayley's first challenge was getting through an array of wires....

So she figured the best way was to go under! Getting good and dirty first thing! :-)

Insects, salamanders, lizards, furry creatures were no match for my nature lover!

I was super proud to see that her and her friend went into the canoe all by themselves! Hard to see but they are in the far back.... :-)

So proud of you Hayley! Never lose your sense of adventure and zest for life! Try everything, be anything your heart desires! :-)

She even brought home some great art projects. They packed a lot into 2 days!

Another first for my girls came courtesy of participating in the Science fair at school. They got free tickets to a minor league baseball game and got to go for the first time. Unfortunately this was one of the days I was really sick so Jerry took pictures for me again. :-)

I love that my girls get so many experiences to enjoy in life. We encourage them as much as possible to do and try new things. To get the most out of life.....

And last but not least, had to share this little guy who greeted me this morning when I went out to feed our fish in our pond.

Sorry you had to miss the fun but Jerry did a great job with the camera. Hope you're "all better" now.

They look like they had so much fun! I love they were on the jumbotron! So cute. Mr. Froggy is adorable. What a nice surprise.

Summer's just around the corner. More fun to be had.
Tell Jerry that I love that shot of the frog in the water. Good job!

Looks like a fun adventure for your daughter and husband, good to read how the trip went, so thanks for sharing :)
Although, I am pretty sure I would have been on the first canoe outta there at the sight of anything amphibian and slimy!

What a fun camping trip of them....Hayley looks like she's enjoying every minute of it! And, how cool your girls made it on the big screen! (And how cool that Jerry actually thought to take a picture of it!)
