Family Camping 2010 was over a month ago, but the memories are still warm in our hearts. Jen, Chris and Trav came in from Houston, and Brad made his way down from DC. Also joining us this year were Dad’s two best buds from high school, Luke and Butch. Luke’s wife Evette, and sweet sweet 4-year-old son, Isaac (Little Man) were also along for the ride, and we all left with our faith in child discipline restored. It rained quite a bit, but we still had a great time.
The night before we left for camping, we went to a Topes game, and also made four buttermilk pies.
Dead tree. Good for firewood.
Isaac was playing horseshoes with Sophie. Sophie is clearly amused.
Luke’s Frisbee: Varsity, Ryan’s: JV.
Ryan and Travis had a coloring contest and Isaac was the judge. Trav wins.
Texas (Chris and Butch) vs. New Mexico (Dad and Ryan) game of horseshoes. New Mexico won. Twice.
We were bored, (mostly due to the rain) so it seemed like a really great idea to have a race. Ryan won.
I then challenged my sweet mother to a walking race, and she really did give me a run for my money.
Do you see how I hardly beat her? Yikes.
Mom’s lightning-quick hands were helpful when avoiding mosquitoes.

Brad and Travis competed for “Best Uncle” award using Little Man.
My family is very concerned with having specific roles defined when together for special occasions. Travis is very much the “Camp Drunk,” and has been for many years now. Brad really wants to be the best at everything, so this year he challenged Travis’ title. Ryan was coaching or counseling Trav in his endeavors, and Chris came in as the Rookie of the Year. Check out these shirts, made by Trav himself.
