We are leaving for Switzerland tonight, but I figured I should share a few pics from our annual camping trip to Grover Hot Springs =). This was our fifth year there and we love it (well, I only love it, because the kids have so much fun...).

Our home away from home

Kids point of view... they pretty much live up on these rocks.

My point of view, watching them play up there =).

We have a creek right in the backyard... it was c-c-c-cold!!

I just love the light in this one.

My lovely hammock, which was a gift for my 20th birthday. And guess what? It finally broke! I'm so sad... I think the chipmunks had a party in it at night, they got tangled up and chewed through a lot of strings. Sniffle.

We also had a day of rain. I was very unhappy. Enough said.

Brian was brave enough to dunk in the cold water too. He's nuts like that!

The kids all had a blast, rain or shine. They made stores and we poor parents had to buy overpriced rocks, bark and what-not. ;-)

The three big girls gave the three younger ones a new name... the evil triplets... ha, ha!! They don't look evil to me!

Last but not least, our master story teller, Sam. He's so animated! Love it!

  1. These are such wonderful images, Monika! You have such a knack for telling stories with your camera. I get captivated with you just like the funny guy above, 'cept I don't get to be right in front of your cute face. Keep up the good work. Your girls are going to be so blessed with all these amazing photos someday-ahhh, the memories!!! Love!!! Can't wait to catch up with you when you return from Switzerland. xo
