We headed up early on Friday morning after a quick stop by Starbucks. (I think Annie finally lost those glasses somewhere up at Union Creek.)
And yes, that's a BBQ in the back of the truck, leading some people to believe we are okies.
We headed up to Diamond Lake to drop off Josh's boat first.
Actually, I think I might miss those glasses.
Ross giving Cole a wedgy.
Ross teaching everyone how to whistle through their fingers. (He's so proud because he learned how to do it after Google-searching it last week.)
And then we stopped by the river to BBQ.
Josh cooked us all lunch out of the back of the truck. (Which might also lead some to believe we are okies.)
She decided she didn't want a veggie patty on her bun.
I told Ross I'd pay him $50 if he could climb that tree.
He never made it up the tree but it was quite entertaining all the same.
Coley gave it a try too.
I want to squeeze her cheeks off sometimes.
And then we checked into the cabin.
And then we went for a hike up by the creek.
I swear, Coley spends half of his life being chased by his Dad.
It makes me so happy seeing her do stuff like that (because she's such a fraidy-cat).
That's Josh Downs wading in the creek to get a couple of Panther Martin fishing lures he found stuck in the bushes. (Ok...he might be an okie.)
And then we headed back to camp for dinner.
And baseball. (We didn't bring any baseball gear so we made due with a stick and a pumice rock.)
And hanging out by the campfire.
The girls were whooping the boys at a game of Boka until Annie fell on the front steps of the cabin. (The poor little chickie banged up her chin and bit her tongue.)
And played paper-rock-scissors.
Josh Downs has a paper-rock-scissors t-shirt that he got for free a few years back and has since convinced Coley that he won it during a paper-rock-scissors championship contest back in high school.
Apparently Coley is a paper-rock-scissors champion too, leaving the competition in his dust...just like his Dad.
And then we hung out some more.
And then there were smores (and bed).
That's it for Friday's pictures. Lots more to come though.
Oh, and I know that on the website, it says the next two Photographers' Workshops are already sold out but they're not.
I offered an early registration for wait list students last week but saved some seats for the general registration which is this coming Monday, July 13th at 9am Pacific time.
In the future though, I am going to do away with the general registration and will only be offering the class to wait list students - so be sure to get on the wait list if you're hoping to take the class someday. (You can get on the wait list here.)
I'll be sure to post more details about registration by the end of the week.
