We were introduced to camping early in our marriage by some friends. Since we enjoyed it, we continued to do tent camping as our family grew up. One year we went to Black Lake Bible Camp with friends from church. We had such a good time (no cooking) that next year, 2002, my Mom & Dad came with us.

ext_family_camps2 We planned time for music. Mom was playing along with Andrew on one of the pieces he had memorized.

ext_family_camps3 We brought several books of music so Mom and Mel could play together.

ext_family_camps4 We were looking forward to camping with our meals provided! There was a lot of good time for talking.
