More Pics From Camp Grizzly

Charming Angela after a swim at Camp Grizzly!
Probably relaxing in the staff lounge!

I have no idea what Chloe was doing here! Maybe painting? I don't really remember painting while we were staying there. I know there was some painting that was done in the fall that she helped with.

Josh checking in the Troops!

More of Angela!

Chloe doing her schoolwork in the cabin. Yes, she does schoolwork in the summer! She went to summer school the year before, but with us being at Camp Grizzly it wasn't possible, so I had to be a homeschool mom for the summer with one kid at least. Besides she loves school! It's necessary to keep her from falling further behind.

Our cabin! Yes, all five of us lived in there for 2 months and survived!

It's very difficult to get him to keep his tongue in his mouth when we take his picture!

This is the view when you walk into the staff area!

Yes! There was work to be done when we arrived at Camp Grizzly!

They really do love each other! They often try to pretend they don't, but nobody's fooled! Except my side of the family. Of course, they really are mean to each other at my parents house, but then they're just following everyone else's lead! Ugh! I'm hoping this last visit for Christmas will be our last visit EVER to see my family!

You've probably seen this picture if you've visited Angela's blog. It's her favorite! She's daddy's little girl for sure! This is in the kitchen at Camp Grizzly, in case you couldn't tell!

Fun At Camp Grizzly!

This is Jeremiah fishing at Camp Grizzly last summer!
This is the picture I've been trying to put on my twitter profile, but it keeps telling me twitter is over capacity! Ugh! That's the lodge at Camp Grizzly behind us and that's my trusty green canteen in front of me! Love that thing! It was perfect for camp and when I got it as a gift at a party I had no idea where I'd be spending my summer!

Again, I have no idea how to turn these one's right side up, but that's my gorgeous Boy Scout husband hard at work at Camp Grizzly!

This is me in front of our little cabin, doing one of my favorite activities! I could cause I didn't have to clean house or make meals or anything! Well, except for make sure my kids got bathed and dressed and all that jazz! But that's easy compared to what I have to do at home!

Chloe, My House, and Palouse Falls

Okay, most of these are definitely doubles, but just in case you missed my earlier posts I'll go ahead and leave them up. She sure is cute, anyway! I'm just as surprised as you are when these come up! I just go with the numbers on the picture. Whatever is the next number after the last one I showed you, I upload and then, I just go with it! I don't have time to sort through and figure out what's what and all that, so I just upload the next number and then type accordingly!
Again, my beautiful red barn...I mean, house! Okay, so it's not so beautiful. It's a broken down, old trailer house, but it is amazing what a little paint and some nails will do for the old place!

Again, my humble little Subaru next to Josh's amazing Santa Fe!

I gotta tell ya, some of these pictures are absolutely stunning! I like this one, though, because it does let me know that they're not too far from civilization! Phew! That's a relief. I'd hate to think that they had to squat! Although for some reason my men and one of my girls really don't seem to mind that much. They're sick people, I tell you! Sick! We came up with indoor plumbing for a reason!

I have no idea how to turn this one the right way!

More Boys Hiking and Girls Being Silly In Their Costumes!

Don't ask me how we got back to pictures of my boys' hiking trip, but they are beautiful!
Well, without the boys in them, anyway! He he! Okay, okay, I'll admit it. I love them!

Finally, my silly little Chloe again! You know, I think my kitchen was actually semi-clean for a brief moment here!

Now, there's a much clearer picture of the shirt she got for her Halloween costume! I had such a terrible time getting her to hold still!
This was Angela's costume! Yes, she can be girly occasionally! Actually, a lot more these days! She made a very beautiful ballerina! We were all being silly this day.

Silliness, House Painting, and More Boy Scouts

My superhero youngest daughter (we're not sure what kind of a superhero she is) being her silly self! You can't read her t-shirt, but it says "Blame Your Parents."
Okay, this was taken the same day. Obviously, we were all being very silly! This is what most people would like to do to me most days. I've frequently commented that my husband used to talk and my mom has suggested that maybe he gave up with me in the same house. Gee, thanks mom!

Again, my adorable youngest! Aren't you glad to know that we do acknowledge our girls while my husband works for the Boy Scouts!

This and the next several pictures are of our junky trailer house while we were putting up new trim and painting, basically patching it up good enough to keep the landlord off our case until we can get out of here! How do you like the barn red? I told my husband I always thought it would be neat to turn an old barn into a house and Josh said I'd have to settle for turning an old house into a barn!

That little silver subaru in the background is my baby! I absolutely love her! I know, I know. She's a humble little Subaru, but do not underestimate her! She's a tough little bugger! She's served me well in the last 2 years since I finally got my driver's license! The other cars my husband awesome and gorgeous Hyundai SantaFe. We love it. I took my driver's test in it and since then have hardly been allowed to drive it, with my amazing ability to back into things!

Hate this picture! I'm sure I will regret putting this on here. Don't you just love the state of our blinds! Ugh! Have I mentioned that I hate my house! I guess I should just be thankful that I have one.

More gorgeous wilderness in our area where my men have spent some time!

I know, I know. Obnoxious boys again!
