Family Camp

A few weeks ago, Trey was in his office praying. After he prayed for his wife to be sweet and submissive and not spend all of his money on Milk Duds, he asked the Lord for something else.
He prayed that we might be able to take a family vacation this summer. We could sure use one but, you know, there's the whole feeding and clothing six children thing that seems to stand between us and some sweet, sweet chilaxin.
Not fifteen minutes later, a gentleman from one of our church partners walked into Trey's office.

"Trey, could you and your family use a week away? We'd love to send you to the Ozarks for family camp. You'd be totally taken care of and get a chance to get some rest."

"Oh, um, no thanks."

"WHAT!?! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!!"

We're on our way and can't wait to relax a little bit with la familia.

It's about a seven hour drive and this is what our car has looked like most of the morning...thanks to a little Dramamine.

We're so excited to kick our feet up and spend some time together in the beauty of northern Arkansas. And I keep telling Trey that he should be thankful...the Lord answered 1/2 of his prayer.
