Well, we picked up Ben from camp on the 4th of July and we both felt he looked like he was another year older!!! We're still getting little details each day but most everyone we spoke to assured us that he had a blast! We were also informed that he wore his skin tight pajama pants for 2 whole days!!! Oh, to be 8 years old, right? We took Jake when we went to pick up Ben at the camp and he enjoyed hanging out with some of his buddies, too! We had a BBQ dinner, devo/worship together, viewed a slide show of pics from their week at camp, and finished off with fireworks. We want to especially thank our Youth Minister, Jim Hinkle and all his staff and Ben's cabin counselors, Russell Wiseman and Anthony Fox. It was another great memory and we look forward to many more years at SV Youth Camp!!

WHAT? Get our clothes wet?
The other day, we had just been in the pool all day so I decided to give them the option of playing in the sprinkler...in their clothes. I must have done too good a job of demanding they keep their clothes clean b/c Jake just couldn't do it! Ben tho't it was just hilarious and Ally was just a complete mess. Takes me back to the days when we played in the water hose at our house w/my brother and sister and made a complete mess of ourselves...and the yard!
