(I was there! I was taking the photo.)At one point I glanced over and saw Mike's parents, Steve and Laurie sitting in their chairs next to each other. It was a relatively quiet moment (rare for that size of a crowd), and as I looked at them, I couldn't help but think what a joyous occasion this camp-out must be for them. All that could, attended. Although I think they were probably sitting in their chairs enjoying a tiny respite from the goings-on of the camp, I imagined them feeling pride and satisfaction in a family enjoying being together. I know I quickly looked ahead and wondered how I would feel with my five children and their spouses and children gathered together doing nothing more than enjoying being together.
Drew enjoyed riding in the wheelbarrow down the trail to get loads from the car.
