Kids Were Here September 2013

I stumbled across a blog that was titled "Kids Were Here". I thought, what a great concept, so I tried my own this month. That is when I remembered. I hope to remember to take more photos like this before they get cleaned up cause this is a Mommy that can't stand it!

Brown County Camping & a Big BOO-BOO

We finally took Josie camping somewhere other than our own backyard. She had an absolute ball and it was pretty great!

A gentleman we met through some friends and then again through Mike's racing career, has a nice place out in Brown County. It had a lake on it so we decided we would give that a try. I completely forgot that it had a cabin on it. We didn't stay in the cabin, we did go ahead and tent camp, but it sure was nice to have a toilet accessible and not have to use nature.

They had anything you could imagine, they were definitely set up for visitors and for someone staying. I would love to have a little get away like that.

Josie's favorite part was going out on the paddle boat. Daddy took her out there first and he tried to fish while she paddled. There wasn't much fishing done cause she just kept going in circles and Mike had to keep turning his pole. It was pretty funny though.

Then Mommy took her out on it and we were out there a while, I had almost made it to the other end and then accidentally pinched Josie's finger in the control that moved you left and right. She screamed bloody murder. I didn't know how I was going to get her back to shore and keep her sitting in the boat. It was awful and I felt horrible! She didn't want to go out on it anymore with me after that. I don't blame her one bit.

Then next day it was suppose to rain so we had to get up early and get everything packed. We got our last part of the stuff put in the truck and the skies opened. We definitely timed that right.

We can't wait to go back and stay again!

Candyland and Coloring

Home from school on this Wednesday, I was in the kitchen fixing supper, Josie was being really quiet and content. I turned around to find out what she was doing.

I love the times that she occupies herself, looks comfortable and completely content being at home. Warms my heart!

After supper, we got out Candyland and had us some family game time.

Before it got to dark out I needed to take Josie's 5 year old photos. I hadn't done them yet and wanted to use Granny's chair. I couldn't get Josie to cooperate very well but I did get a few. Then Kayla joined in and I got some of them just being the Silly Girls that they are.
