Grams and Daddy Mack Camp 2008


Gram's Camp is over for this year. I know Grams and Daddy Mack are enjoying some much needed peace and quiet after 6 days with 5 grandchildren. :)

We were blessed to have Colin here with us for a couple of days before Camp officially started. You know what we did? We swam out hearts out.



I turned around to find out why it was quiet and this is what I saw. Aren't they cute.



It lasted all of about 5 minutes and he was ready to play "swoosh" again. This is my way of getting him to take off those arm floaties and try to swim. He did great. Another couple of days and he would have been all over that pool on his own.



Uncle Chad making sure we are all buckled in for our trip to Chattanooga.



Sitting in traffic. You should have seen the look I got from the truck driver beside me when I snapped this one.

Colin loves his girls.



FYI - Emma's assignment for the week was to photo journal Gram's camp. The next photos are all Emma's handiwork.

Now, I will say this...I have not photo shopped or enhanced these in any way. (Except for one unknown lady...whose backside was taking up half of a picture...I cropped that photo. I would hate to think that my backside was on a stranger's blog. But those particular pictures will be up Wednesday or Thursday when we share about the TN. River Gorge Explorer.)

Gram's camp through the eyes of Emma P. a 7 year old.





This next one took my breath away. She may need to spend sometime with Diana Simpson. :) She is one incredible photographer in Chattanooga if you live in that area. Plus, she's crazy about Jesus!

Beautiful pictures and what a neat idea for the summer. It doesn't get much better than camp with Grams and Daddy Mack I'm sure.

PS I wouldn't want my butt all over the internet either.
