On Tuesday my Dad, Mom, Lincoln, Bethany, Joanna (a very close friend of the family) and I left for Wisconsin to go attend a graduationZoe had to work a few days, so she was going to fly into Chicago and we would pick her up on Friday on our way to Wisconsin. My Dad drove all night to my Grandparents house in Illinois and on the way we picked up two more friends Carissa and Cheyenne. We stayed at my Grandparents for two days and had a very relaxing time visiting with them and they treated us like royalty. Serenity our cousin from AZ had been staying there for a few weeks after camp and she came with us to the graduation as well. We left early Friday for Wisconsin, after picking up ZoĆ« at the airport we went to Kenosha on Lake Michigan and had a picnic.  We then continued to Clintonville, Wisconsin, arriving that evening at 5pm, we had a cook out with the Pyatskowit family, it is their daughter Anna who was graduating. Us girls stayed at a farm house in the country, we stayed up late that night, and in the morning we went 4-wheeling for hours all over the farm. Some of the girls went to pick flowers for the graduation, but a few of us stayed and had a photo-shoot session with Serenity. Anna’s graduation was very nicethe food and fellowship was great, we played volleyball and a few of us went on a walk to Haman’s fall’s which was close by and took more pictures. Sunday we had church in a tent at the farm and on Monday we went for a hike along Wolf creek on the Menomonee Indian reservation and had a picnic by the water.Tuesday morning we began our drive home, we dropped Serenity off at the Milwaukee airport and then drove another 3 hours to the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan and went swimming and ate lunch on the beach.I had an amazing trip and thank I my dad and mom for all the work they did for us to have a great time.

BYC Camp

You all probably have been wondering where I have been, well my family and I have been on a trip to BYC camp in Indiana for a week. Driving to camp took us about 11 hours; it was SO worth the 11 hour trip though. A great thing about camp is seeing some of our cousins from AZ, seeing old friends and meeting new friends. However, the best part of camp is going to the church services, receiving a blessing and being in the Lords Presence, is definitely the highlight.  I am so EXCITED and cannot wait for next year. I hope you all are having a great summer, I know I am.
