my day

Today necessitated a few choice photos.  Here's a quick run down of my day.  A day in camp life, if you will.  

#1:  It was my boss' birthday.  We really like to celebrate it.  Usually it heralds office olympics.  But this year, we are all obsessed with the Hunger Games movie that is coming out this weekend, so we decided to go see that instead (next week).  We didn't want him to think we forgot that today was his big day, so we decorated his office with a wreath, cake, a birthday banner and the dummy we used for last year's office olympics.  He loved it.  Or we like to think he did.

#2.  It was dinner club night.  The most wonderful night of the week.  The girls watched Finding Nemo tonight.  (ps...Finding Nemo is quite astounding in wide screen HDTV.  Wow.)

#3:  Dinner club was outside tonight because it was so beautiful.  After dinner was over, we meandered over to the campfire pit my roommate built at our house this past weekend.  It was a perfect night for campfire chats.  Truly.

#4:  This was the delicious treat we had for dessert tonight.  Pioneer Woman made it on her show.  It's a banana slit down the middle, filled with chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and wrapped in foil.  Bake at 350 degrees until everything is melted.  Then eat and try not to make "mmmmmm" noises the whole time.  Oh, good gracious, this thing is heavenly.

#5:  The rule in the cottage is if you cook, you don't do the dishes.  It's a great rule.  The girls wanted to help tonight.  I couldn't take how absolutely adorable they were, so I had to take a photo.

Some days are awful.  Some days are trying.  And some days remind me why I love it here so much that it hurts. We take the good with the bad and trust that the Lord will give us exactly what we need when we need it.  Learning to wait and not freak out over that whole when thing is always the challenge.
