4: Canoe trip on Clarion River
5: As you can see, we had an adventure! The river was very low so an occasional stop to get out and pull the canoe over the rocks was necessary. We thought Brandon was going to walk the rest of the way!
7: Thanks for the camping trip Mimi and Bubba! | A flat rock provided the perfect spot to stop for lunch...everyone was hungry, especially Bubba who was excited for his sandwich! | The thrill seekers!

12: Camp Activities included playground fun, beauty time with the girls, a game of frisbee and Cornhole toss as well as plenty of relaxation, conversation and, of course, food!
13: Our camp site was our home away from home for the day and these city slickers were quite comfortable!
14: The traditional camp dinner was Mimi's spaghetti with salad and plenty of bread....we saved room for Abbey's homemade dessert, too!
15: The girls leading the pack to the Fire Tower!
19: Rachel led us to the top of the Fire Tower | Everyone found something fun to do...from playing hide and seek to rock climbing. Rachel and Abbey liked climbing up to Fire Tower and monkey Lizzy and Spider Man Brandon were scaling rocks!
