Kevin met us there. Here he is demonstrating his awesome "Chatelain point". Check out those cabins, nope no heat or air, but we did have bunks with a thin mattress. Best of all a roof over our heads, which was something to write home about with all of the rain we saw on Friday and Saturday. They did have electricity and lots of screened windows. I could see in the summer how they would be extremely hot and I could imagine spiders falling from the rafters as you slept at night.
We adopted the two eldest Atnip children for several days while Mark and Kelly were away on a business trip. So they came camping with us. The kids were estatic to arrive at Camp Kum Ba Ya with all of the other children from church. The steady rain did not faze them one bit. Luckily I had two ponchos, so Caleb wore his part of the time and Kiersa and Cody took turns wearing his yellow poncho. Thankfully it was warm enough that the kids could play out in the rain and mud and not worry us about catching pneumonia. Because there was no getting them out of it.

The 4 Musketeers
We had Smores at the campfire that night and socialized till we had to get some sleepy children into bed. There was a hard steady rain all night long, perfect for sleeping. Except for the occasional waking up to pull covers and sleeping bags kicked off of children curled up in cold little balls in their beds and comforting Kiersa who fell like a ton of bricks out of her bed.
The rain cleared up for most of the morning. Bailey is enjoying the beautiful campsite. There were hiking trails around us and the lake was beautiful. Too bad it was so wet and muddy everywhere.
Speaking of muddy...
Quinn got very up close and personal with a mud hole. He was quite embarrassed about falling and getting so muddy, so I sent him to the shower to wash up and change clothes before we headed home.
