Camping - Day Two

We all woke up bright and early because the birds were singing so loudly!

The early morning mist on the lake was beautiful!

Patrick took this picture

Our campsite was on a hill, so we could look down and see the swimming beach.

David and James decided to jump in and swim before breakfast.

Rebekah and Emma watch . . .

I thought this picture was so funny!

Breakfast time!

Patrick enjoying his pancakes

Look at these sleepy kids!

Emma is disgusted that some syrup got on her pop tart!

Hope, Emma, and Patrick - This dock was at our campsite.

As soon as breakfast was over the rest of us went for a swim.  Poor little Patrick was not able to put his leg in the water because of some infected bug bites, but he was very sweet about it.

Patrick smiles at the swimmers

Livy LOVES the water!

Emma looked so adorable in her life jacket!

David and James are crazy!

Water is so much fun!

Emma loved splashing!

We swam for about 2 hours and had the lake all to ourselves!!

At 10:00 we took a boat ride

We passed this deer sitting on the bank

Livy leans over to give Emma a kiss

The kids were getting REALLY tired by this time!

When we got back to camp Emma took a nap!

She's so precious!

David and James got peddle boats for us to ride on and brought them up to our campsite.

The Gallaghers - minus Emma, who was still sleeping

Once Emma woke up she got a ride with her brothers, Rebekah, and Sarah

Patrick wanted another group picture before we left, so here it is!

Livy was asleep before we got out of the park!
