Camping Fun !

Here we are all ready to go! I think the dogs were just as excited as the kids. If you can believe it we crammed 6 people, 2 dogs, and all the camping gear including 2 coolers, 6 chairs, a huge tent, a portable canopy, 6 sleeping bags, 6 pillows, assorted blankies, etc.....into and on top of our mini-van! It was an amazing and truly hysterical sight to see.

Isn't this just gorgeous. Washington State has some of the most beautiful land that God ever created. Just breathtaking.

I love all of the old homesteads. Red barns are my favorite.

Here is where we stayed. A place called Lake Pearrygin in a cute little city called Winthrop. It was such a beautiful and fun filled weekend. Aside from a little sunburn and mosquito bite epidemic, we had a perfect time. We hope to make this a yearly trip. It had been 10 years since the last time we stayed here.

All has been busy, busy around here. The weather has been just beautiful and we are soaking up every moment of it.

In response to a few requests for my biscuit recipe. I am still tinkering with it, and will post when I've got it just right. And yes, I did add whole wheat flour in a 1 to 4 ratio. But thank you for asking, and I will post the recipe soon.

Enjoy all of the wonderful joys of summer! Bless you all this week. In God's Love, Tami
