Before you link up, indulge me and check out my Sizzlin’ Summer Vacation. We went to Pine Cove Family Camp in Tyler, Texas and had an incredible week.
It was simply amazing. Here are some other highlights:
Redneck Hubby with a Gun, Shooting some Skeet.
One little boy conquering his fear and flying down a zip line for the first time.
Oh. And the water balloon fight was pretty spectacular.
Watching my family fly off the Water Rocket was hilarious!
Falling into the water, upside down & backwards was cool!
Swinging with Daddy was the best!
The Breakfast Trailride with my hubby was awesome!
But most of all, the best part of our vacation was reconnecting with my hubby, my kids and God. That was the greatest!
