We went picking!

And we did nothing with our bounty except eat them and smoothie them.

So good.

Our Garden.

And rose water. I stumbled across this post and saw the link to make this!
I'm gonna save it for winter. How good will this smell when there is 3 feet of coldness out?

In New London.

There are no words.

URC 3,final pictures.

All good things must end.
So, we made the best of our last few hours lakeside.

Then it was time to go home.

Which is a nice place to go, too.
We love this summer trip so much, and can't wait to do it all again.
That's it, all of it! I can not possibly squeeze another part out of it.

URC 3, part 6.

There was always some kind of fun happening when the sun went down.

One of our favorite nights was when a super cool Mama painted all the kids faces.

There was music in the back ground,

 and glo sticks.

Fun was everywhere.

Pretty much all the time.

URC 3, part 5. My favorite thing.

A few months before this camping trip, Marlin decided that she wanted to make jewelry to bring and sell. So she sat and spent hours designing and creating really pretty necklaces and some earrings. As the camping trip approached, her confidence began to waiver. She was worried that nothing would sell, and nobody would really like it.
 I encouraged her to bring it, and then see if she wanted to do once she was comfortable there.
On one particular night, she said that she was ready to bust out her wares.
She laid out all of her stuff on a blanket and waited.

 The kids were all busy running around and did not really notice her. So I snuck over to Jean and told her of Marlin's intentions and asked if we could announce something. Luckily it was a music themed night, and so there was a microphone. After the mention of jewelry was made,

she had quite a crowd!

She was beaming!

Her self confidence, and cash flow were growing visibly.

She learned so many things in that half hour, it was outstanding.

Just look at her happy customers!:
There is nothing quite like watching your child do something like this for themselves. It was a leap for her.

Watching her leap was definitely my favorite thing that weekend.
