What a Beautiful Weekend

Anyone who knows the Watson family, knows we like to camp :) When we saw the weather forecast for this past weekend, we decided to take a last minute camping trip. We have never been to Cedars of Lebanon before to camp. It is only 30 minutes away, so we decided to try it out. It turned out to be a beautiful weekend. I had to work Thursday, but Tim packed up most of the stuff & headed to the campground w/the boys. I met them up there after work. The sites were really close together & set up w/only 1 adult isn't always so easy. Tim had a little mishap w/the site marker & the front bumper of his truck :( He decided that site was too small, and moved the camper. As he pulled the camper off the site, he scraped a tree along one side of the camper :( No biggy--just a little scratch. Anyway, he found another site & got set up...the rest was totally fun :) Here are the fun pictures:

All the makings of smores--Yummy!!!

They have a really nice pool, here are the boys w/their fancy moves.
On Saturday, Grandma & Papa, Granny & Paw, Aunt Mary Ann & Uncle Ray came to visit. All the grandparents stayed for supper & a few games of Sequence. It was such a nice weekend. I couldn't help but think about Gloria Grace. I'd see moms pushing their little girls around in strollers, and think about how hopefully soon Gloria Grace will be camping with us too. When I hear the boys praying, and they ask God to watch over G.G. in her orphanage-it melts my heart. This whole journey has been such a blessing to our entire family. We are so close to a referral, I can feel it :) Keep praying friends!

Looks like you guys had a great time! We love camping too! And we do Jiffy Pop too! :^}

I also watch little girls and think of our little girl. They'll be home before we know it!

I've been an emotional puddle lately taking care of immunizations, Zaza's bedding, sewing for BFZ and thinking of schooling her as well. So much of our life will change with that single phone call. I've already told Rick that with that call homeschooling is halted for 3 months. Praying for you and GG.
