I know y'all have been wondering when I was going to show all the pics from our camping trip to Father Hennepin on Mille Lacs.
The answer is now!
We had such a wonderful time camping. The weather was great. Not too hot. It was pretty windy but that was a good thing because the mosquitoes were really bad.

Here are a few of almost 200 I took. Hardly any turned out and the ones that are somewhat acceptable aren't the best. My camera has been having problems with focusing.
I'm not really sure what was going on here. I was adjusting the settings on my camera and noticed this when I uploaded it to my camera. I like how Owen's finger is in his nose and the other boys seem to have found something interesting on Owen's head.
It is really really hard to get a picture of all 5 kids even looking in the same direction, much less smiling. And then my camera wasn't focusing very well so I didn't get many group shots.
I guess I have to be happy with what I got.
Later in the day, my parents and 2 younger brothers came to camp with us. The boys had so much fun, mostly catching these..
You might be wondering what these are...they are crayfish. And you are also probably wondering why they are catching them. To eat them of course!
Yup, they cooked them up and ate them. I even tried one and they weren't bad. Kinda tasted like little lobsters.

While the boys were busy fishin', my mom and I took Owen and Audrey swimming. It was so cold they didn't go in the water too far.
We found one on the beach that was just about dead and Owen played with that thing for a long time.
