Family Camping Party

This group, mostly families from Farley Community Church, had the right idea!  They started pulling in on Friday, and by Saturday afternoon, they had the campground looking like a filled campground!  
A couple families stayed in pop-up campers, one pulled a (new) trailer camper, and one had a 5th wheel camper.  The rest of the families had tents all over the place . . .
We walked up during dinner time on Saturday evening (of course!) and there was all kinds of cooking going on -- folks using Dutch ovens for all kinds of foods and even grilling steaks.  We had to laugh -- even
with all that cooking and eating going on, one of the ladies was already looking forward to cinnamon rolls in the Dutch oven on Sunday morning!
There was even some sort of spit rigged over the fire and we wondered if they were going to have a pig roast!  But alas, it was just for drying boots.

Lots of happy kids road their bikes and hiked and played.  The families spent most of the day Saturday and Sunday playing in the creek, splashing and having fun.  They even brought and setup a volleyball net out in the upper field . . .
And then donated it to the camp -- we're very grateful for that addition!

This little fellow may not be the youngest camper we've ever had up here, but at six months old, he's got to be close!
We were very happy to have this gang up here for Memorial Day weekend -- they are welcome any time!
