family camp 2014

We spent last week at our camp in New York. Steve and I were both counselors there during our college summers, and we fell in love on the shores of Lake Chautauqua :) I didn’t know that five years later we would start a tradition of going to family camp, and this second year was one I won’t soon forget!

Monday—we spent the afternoon with the kids on the beach. I wish that we could hang out there every day!

Tuesday—I can’t tell you how many hours we spent at the giant sandbox. When we were done, we hit the beach for additional sand fun :) (And a little bit of time in the water.)


Wednesday—The guys were playing in a basketball tournament in the gym, so the rest of us entertained ourselves on the grass.

Steve’s grandpa, widowed in May, came to spend the week with us. I was glad to capture this shot of father and son!

I wasn’t sure if Nolan was going to be able to tie-dye correctly, but he did! I did make sure that he had no clothes on to get in the way!

Thursday—We attempted a trip to the beach (again!), but the temperature had dropped so we didn’t stay for long.

The discovery of puddles!

The staff watched our kids (minus Ephraim), so we took off for a quick ice cream run :)

Friday—I already posted pictures from the Fourth of July parade. We had a low-key afternoon, and left for home after dinner.

already planning for next year! This week went by too fast, but we’re so grateful that our boys will be a part of this camp legacy and will hopefully come to know Jesus better on these special grounds. :)


  1. What a great week you had! I think it's very neat that you're able to revisit the place where you and Steve fell in love, and spend time there with your entire family. How special this place must be in your hearts!

  2. I love the idea of family camp. I have never heard of this before. You said your father-in-law joined you, but did any other family?

    1. Yep! All of Steve's family--his parents, 3 brothers, brother's wife, and our 3 nieces :)

  3. Love it! Isn't it the best vacation!

  4. What a fun, fun week! You got some amazing pictures and I am totally jealous of that beach!!!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
