"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Pine Cove Family Camp Sunday- Tuesday

Our family had the privilege of attending Family Camp at Pine Cove Christian Camps in Tyler, TX a couple of weeks ago. I was such an incredible time of refreshment, renewal, restoration and family time with no distractions. We are still trying to unpack what the week did for us as far as goals we have for our family spiritually and the many ways it impacted us forever. When we got home, we definitely had the "camp blues" doing many of the fun camp cheers and wishing we were still there instead of the "real world". There are so many pictures of our week that I have to do several blogs to get them all in. I do apologize for the large number of pics. Don't feel that you have to look at all of them. :)

Every night of camp there is a "theme" that all the dress, food and activities are based on. (Thanks to all you wonderful people who helped us come up with outfits for the week by letting us borrow your stuff!) Monday night was the Oregon Trail. How cute are my little Cowboy and Indian?!

Mommy and Ainsley all dressed up for a rodeo.

Daddy and our sweet little girl.

Right before dinner - I love this pic b/c they had no idea why they were dressed up or what was in store for them! We looked forward to dinnertime and the fun activities every night! So fun!

I love my cowboys! We went to a real live rodeo that night and Austin had the time of his life! It was such a fun experience! The girls were dropped off in Cove Kids for the evening and the three of us with Aunt ZuZu could enjoy the show.

Austin loved all the animals of course but his favorite was.....

the CLOWNS!!

These two college students were so much fun and Austin informed me that he wanted to be a clown when he grew up. (He already is!!;)

Aunt ZuZu was the whole reason we got to experience this incredible place! This summer was her 9th summer at Pine Cove! We loved getting to see her every day of the week!

Ainsley at Cove Kids: the fun place where all three of the kiddos spent their days. (We even took them there for nap time!!)

This was the bubble princess who the kids visited several times during the week.

She was Audrey's favorite. :)

On Tuesday night we dropped the kids off and the staff had a picnic basket filled and ready for each couple for a romantic dinner. We found a spot overlooking the lake and had a wonderful evening that ended with a sunset boat ride. I am telling you! This place was amazing!! Praise God for Pine Cove! More pics to come...
