We were excited to venture on another camping trip this weekend (scorching heat aside) to William O'brien State Park with our friends, new and old, from our church, Riverway. It was such a fun weekend of community building, simple living and an appreciation for the nature around us (though we could have gone without the torrential down pour). We spent our time at the beach on Lake Alice, playing games, walking around Stillwater, eating, throwing knives (yes, really), enjoying bonfires and s'mores, scavenger hunt style hiking, fishing and we even had our own cooking competition--"Chopped" style (the boys won against the girls, so that means they are now required to show off their expertise in cooking dinner for their families all week). This weekend was another wonderful opportunity for the mom's and dad's to socialize while we let our children run free and rampant for hours with other kids and just hope that none of them get lost or hurt. Thank you to the Prices for putting together such a fun event! We are already looking forward to next year's trip!
