Fall Camp-out 2006

This year's fall camp-out was a lot of fun! It was wonderful to spend almost 3 days relaxing, talking, and playing with family and friends.

On Saturday morning, most of us went on a hike down to The Point, the place the Tallapoosa River and the Coosa River join to make the Alabama River. It was a beautiful walk, although the trails were at times confusing!

The Point was a beautiful place, perfect for pictures

We played quite a few games of volleyball, as is the tradition. Playing volleyball, ultimate frisbee, freeze tag, hide-and-seek, and capture the stick has left me feeling quite sore, however!

I of course took every opportunity to do one of my favorite things: hold babies or little children! My lap was rarely empty, and my arms grew sore from holding so many little ones, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Here I am holding Jonathan Pace, only 2 months old and already going camping. He was so sweet, cuddly and contended, and the 6th child in the Pace family!

It was such a delight to spend a whole weekend with my dear friend Miriam!

Yes, it was a wonderful camp trip!
All the games were fun, but left me quite sore as well. The weather was just right for camping.

Yes, it was a great campout! I enjoyed spending uninterrupted time with young/old friends. Worshipping around the campfire is something I always look forward to. It was a neat blessing to have some other campers in the area come and join us.

Hey, you Georgia girls, since you are so close to us, would you be interested in joining us in the spring when we have have our next semi-annual campout? Consider yourselves invited. When we have the details we'll post them.

Cool. Glad you guys had fun. Too bad I missed it. Oh well, maybe 4 years (or 5 or 6 since I don't think I want to take 18 hours in my Sophmore year) from now I can rejoin the campouts.
