So this was the view from our cabins.
One of the first activities we did was the archery and rifle range. I wasn't that great with the bow and arrows but I did really good with the rifle.
We also did some horseback riding...
While I did enjoy it, and I would definately go again, I was a bit nervous up there. My horse was very tall, and he kept shaking his head, trying to keep the flies away. And I don't think he liked me much...whenever he had the chance, he'd walk so I'd have to duck under branches. He would actually turn a little so that this would happen. And I didn't like tugging on the ropes to tell him where to go, but I had to start doing that when I saw he was making a point to run me into the branches. I kept picturing him hiking up on his hind legs and then taking off running with me on him. But I'm glad I went, and like I said, I would definately do this again.
We also spent quite a bit of time on the lake...paddle boating and kayaking.
And carpet ball is only one of the most fun games ever. We had a tournament but I didn't win, although I'm not too bad at it. I am trying to convince my hubby to build a carpet ball stand thingy for our back patio. He thinks it's too long, so I'll have to research it more...
And we ended both days around the campfire, chatting and relaxing.
So I didn't get as many photos as I would have liked to. We did so much more than you see here, but it's hard to do all this stuff with a camera in tow. I only used my camera on my phone.
There was only 13 of us ladies on the trip this year. I didn't know any of them, although two are in my MOPS group, we just were in different groups there. So I made a lot of new friends and we had so much fun. The camp staff made delicious food and it was so nice to be served and cleaned up after! I'm so thankful for this new foundation and how much they want to support military families.
