Camp in Autumn

Believe it or not, I actually had the *ENTIRE* day off on Monday! No babies, no pizzas and wings, just me and the Code-Man! We took a trip down to Mooers, where we helped Pa get his garage in a box set up. We had a wonderful lunch thanks to the McDonald's Drive-Thru, then we went on to camp to close up for the season. Unfortunately due to the summer's circumstances, we did not have much of a chance to stay at our camp this summer. Hopefully, things will be different next year.
The campgrounds this time of year is gorgeous! There is a beautiful blanket of freshly fallen leaves in all different colors, and it is so quiet and peaceful down there that it just draws me like a magnet. We took Brodie with us-along with her lifetime companion, her tennis ball. We got everything packed up and then we took a nice walk in the sunny peaceful afternoon air. And I, of course, took some pictures!
My favorite thing to do is to take pics of people/pets walking away from me..and this one really hit me cause Cody is so BIG and I love how Brodie is looking up at him!

Brodie has to be THE most photogenic dog on the planet..and she actually lives up to her name here, Brodie Blue!
Of course, the only reason she sits still for photos at all is because we hold her tennis ball next to the camera!
This one melted my heart! I *LOVE* my camera!
Another one of Miss Blue...notice she is sporting her new yellow/green John Deere collar...she finally demolished her green/yellow one!
That concludes our pictorial of our day at camp! I feel like I missed out on so much this year not being down there... Have a lovely Wednesday everyone!

October 6

I thought today was a fitting day to fire up the blog again. There have been many huge changes in my life in this past year, and so many things are different now. I thank you for being patient with me during these past few months, the support means the world to me.
In honor of getting my blog moving once again, todays post is dedicated to my grandparents, Russell and Naomi. They shared a marriage, a life together, a boatload of children, as well as good and bad times. They also shared a birthday. Although a couple years apart, they were both born on October 6th. They are no longer with us in person, but live on every day in the lives of their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren. They live on in all of us in our hearts, our personalities, and they way we live our lives.
Love you Papa and Grandma, with all my heart.
