We just got back this evening from camping at my daughter's place up near Lake Huron. We had a great time! The weather was perfect, even though it was a bit cold last night.
We huddled by the fire. Here is a picture of Michael, who informed me that he is nearly four:
The kids had fun playing in the creek, but the greatest excitement was when Christopher came screaming across the lawn with all of the other kids chasing after him. He had not one, but TWO LEECHES. Salt was applied, and Jared pulled the leeches off. Whew!
Adeena and Jeff are blessed with a 112 acre farm. In the back of the farm is a ravine, and past that there's a beautiful creek bed. We went there and explored for a bit. We heard a crashing through the bush, and looked up to see a doe running along the top of the ravine on the other side of the creek. I was in awe at the beauty of this deer, so close...and forgot to snap a picture.
But here are some pics of the area:
Jared looking down at the ravine:

Adeena, Jeff, Jared and Daniel discussing the beauty of the area; dreaming big!
Daniel holding Ava...but she really wanted to go back to Mommy!
Family time is always special. We'll be heading back to Creekside in June.
