Starting off with the arrival at Alpine, AZ... after a GORGEOUS drive through the state of Arizona we arrived in Alpine to see the welcoming committee!
We had so many great adventures during the week- some calm, and some not-so-calm. We relaxed and enoed (if you look up this word it isn't found in the dictionary); we also scaled mountains and canyons. We loved our time visiting our family by blood and our family in Jesus (Grandview Camp staff).
So, I will now post pictures and walk you through our adventure. This will be a long post... here goes!
|Jon and Benton... enoing. :)|
|Hannah Sute... SO HAPPY SHE COULD COME!|
|One morning we drove to the New Mexico border and spent some time legitimately "hanging out"...|
enjoyed time in the Word, in God's beautiful creation. . . JUST relaxing!
|Evidence of the rain...|
|Couldn't resist... this about sums us up.|
|So very thankful for him!|
|Such a strange thing. At the top of the mountain was a massive swarm of flying ants. You can see them all|
above Jon's head...
|SO MUCH BURN!|
|We were attacked by briers all the way up the mountain... it was an intense little climb!|
|You can see the summit behind us...|
|Jon carried Benton for part of the hike... he was pretty pooped by the end of the hike! ;)|
|Dad and Mom were able to come out to visit while we were there which was a real treat!|
|Kathryn is growing up so quickly! Trying to break into one of the cabins...|
|You can see the burn all around the camp site but the buildings were all spared from the fire (minus one cabin...)|
|This is the view of Escadilla from the multi-purpose building that is underway.|
Can't wait to see this finished!
|Mom and Hannah|
|(I know, you're probably getting tired of pictures of Ronnie and me... sorry!!!)|
|LOVE these two!!!|
|Proud to call them family!|
