fantastic friday: camping

We went camping with Phil and Ruthie for the 4th.  It really was fantastic.  We camped on the 3rd and then spent the 4th at a really nice water hole and wasn’t too crowded most of the day.  I haven’t been swimming in a long time and it was great to be outside and explore a new area.  I would definitely like to go back, especially since it was only about half an hour, 45 minutes away.  I love the natural beauty we are so surrounded by here.  And I’m thankful for friends that we can enjoy it with.  And tonight is the girls’/guys’ sleep over, which we haven’t done since January.
