About Me

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

Camping Part 2

Once we visited with everyone, we decided to head closer to home to find a better campsite.  Our site in Austin didn't have any kind of fire pit, nor could we even use our tiki torches at night.  They would not allow any type of open flame.  We actually had to ask to borrow a small grill to cook on and a table to eat off of.  We wanted to go home with the smell of a campfire on our clothing, at least, so we headed to Lake Whitney to finish our camping vacation.

Our campsite at Lake Whitney offered everything we wanted.  A fire pit. A grill. A table.  A shaded area to eat.  Close access to the water for swimming.  No restrictions on burning.  Mike cooked us some amazing meals over the fire, we made smores late into the night, the boys and I rode bikes, and we swam all day and then returned to the lake to watch the sunset in the evenings.  We had a lovely time together.  Our favorite part of the trip was watching the boys bond more and more every day. 

 

Nice place for my morning quiet time.

 

A beautiful, heart-warming way to end each evening.  

Camping is so good for the soul. And such a bonding experience for a family. We are looking forward to our next camping trip in July.
