But we did it. We got everything set up, thanks to Laura's fabulous organizational skills. Then we waited....while doing some goofing off of course.
Jess thought it was a bit strange to see some familiar kids running through the woods when they pulled up. Rob had her convinced he needed to stop and use the bathroom there.
Can't you just see the "Oh my gosh" look on her face?
Some of the gals getting ready to swim.
The rock climbing crew. They loved challenging themselves up this small cliff near the river.
Silas and Jalen take a break on a rock. Two froglets enjoying the sun and water.
They swam so much their muscles ached for a few days afterwards. I love the look on Tyler's face here.
My honey comes down after work to hang out with our motley crew.
The beautiful photo collage Laura made for Jess. Later on we viewed a slideshow that Rob had put together. It showed pics of Jess all throughout her life...the 80's hair was awesome!! Totally tubular. Radical. You know, like so kewl.
Can you say pyromaniacs?
Oh yeah...nothing like some roasting marshmallows, warm fire and good music to top off the day. Except maybe a good beer.
Fine entertainment from the musicians. Above is Heather (who really needs to record her own CD soon!! hint, hint), below the Lost Mountain String Band.
Then the glowsticks.
Another magic gathering with beautiful people. I love making great memories.:)
Happy, happy birthday Jessica. I'm glad you were born and I'm glad to be part of your celebration!
