Family Fun at Falls Lake – Fri & Sat, June 14 & 15, 2013
Friday, June 14
Fortunately, last night’s storms were NOT an issue for us:o))
We woke to a beautiful cool, clear morning and NO storm damage!!
The girls changed into their ‘sparkly’ clothes!
It was a little too cool and windy for swimming this morning,
so the girls and I headed to the fishing dock.
No, we weren’t going fishing…
they had a very important job to do…
remove all the cobwebs!!!
They make a great team;o)
Emily worked the high rails and Samantha worked the lower!!
Before long, the rest of the family joined us for a little fishing.
Since we didn’t catch anything,
I guess it is really called Fish Feeding;-)
The girls decided they were tired of “Feeding the Fish,”
so we went in search of the playground.
Ahhh..... Life Is Just A Tire Swing!!!
Finally, the weather warmed after lunch.
We headed to THE ROCK for an afternoon of swimming!!!
It just doesn’t get any better than this;o))
After working up quite an appetite swimming all afternoon,
What would camping be without a campfire and SMORES!!!
Daniel asked me over and over if we could make Smore Pies.
To make Smore Pies,
you spread 2 pieces of white bread with peanut butter,
then add a chocolate bar and marshmallow.
Put the sandwich in a pie iron and place on the fire.
Oops…the first one got a little over done, but Grandpop loves the burnt ones;o))
Finally, Daniel got the pie he had been waiting for!!!
Once it got dark, the kids had a ball catching Fireflies:o))
Can’t wait to do it all over again tomorrow!!!

Second Verse Same As The First!!
Today, we just repeated the activities of yesterday with one major change…
As fast as they could bait the hook, they were catching fish:o))
Another beautiful afternoon swimming at The ROCK!!
Just before dinnertime, Andrew and Julie went fishing one more time.
Way to go Andrew:o))
Somehow, I didn’t get any photos of our wonderful dinner
the yummy, gooey Birthday, Anniversary, Father’s Day cake we enjoyed!!
But rest assured… it was all delicious:o)
We spent the rest of the evening playing a crazy game called Apples to Apples!!
It has been a wonderful few days with the family… it’s just never long enough!!
The END !!
