Pine Lake Camping

On the Canada Day long weekend we went camping with The Russells and Grammee & Grandad to Pine Lake.  It has been just over 6 years since we had been to the Salvation Army camp on the lake.  It has changed so much but the memories of all the summers there still came back.  It was great to be there and we had lots of fun telling old stories and boring the kids like the fact that Chrissy and I had our first kiss outside Cluster 2 oh so many years ago :)

Below are a ton of pictures and a couple of videos from the weekend.

On Saturday Auntie Shauna and Uncle Tom came out for the day with Little Tommy.

So the boy was having a blast cruising on his Big Wheel.  He figured out how to do burn outs and LOVED it!
