Birthday Success!


This past week end, William, four of his closest friends and their Dads, had another successful camp-out at Northcroft .  A trip up Croft mountain to find the famous "Jelly Bean" tree, that only blooms on William's birthday; started off the boy's adventure.  Throughout the day there were also special polished rocks, salted among the natural river rock, that had a purple "W" on one side, to be found and collected.  Prizes were given to the one that found the most!

The boys enjoyed their tent city camp ground, a hike to the waterfall, many trips to Kate's, "Egypt", cup cakes (and too many more "goodies" to mention), dinner (and breakfast) around the campfire, a terrific Snipe Hunt and thanks to Grandad; as many 4-wheeler rides as the boys wanted to take.

Thank God for this wonderful place and for all the terrific boys (and dads!) who enjoy it.

Honorable mention to A and E for being such good helpers!

P.S. S-C's feel free to add to the memories on Chatterbox if you like.  I will post any favorite pictures and memories just for the record.
