Mark and Nick's Great Adventure

This past weekend, Mark and Nick went on their annual camping trip with Mark's brother in law-Brett and 2 of his boys. This year one of the guys that Mark works with told him he should go up to the state land that is right next to some land that he owns. It was perfect because it was only an hour and a half away. We were a little worried about going this weekend because of the weather but it was perfect.
They left Friday around 5:00. It rained a little bit yet on Friday but by night it was done and the rest of the weekend was beautiful!
Mark told me he got some great pictures when he called, but I had no idea they would be this good. Usually a picture doesn't capture the scenery- well looking at these pictures, I can't imagine how beautiful it must have been up there. What great father son time they had: fishing and shooting at targets and spending time with cousins. Enjoy God's creation- I know they did!

Here is the whole gang together:

Nick, Garrett and Saul

One of my favorite pictures: My boys- aren't they handsome!!


Look at how the color of the trees is reflected in the water!

A little campfire to warm things up at night:

Oh my gravy! Amazing pictures. I love the one of Nick sitting beside the tree and water. It looks like a posed one from a professional photographer. The colors make me miss growing up in Illinois.
