Yeager 2014

I was much excited as the highly anticipated Yeager Camp approached!
Friday found me baking and getting together food to take.
The 'Can't Leave 'em alone' bars didn't turn out well enough to be shared,
but Matthew is enjoying them in his lunches and they are AMAZING when frozen!
 Speaking of things being frozen....  Vanessa had made cinnamon rolls at December camp and served scrambled eggs with them.  There were eggs left over, so it was requested for us to keep them in a mini fridge that Matthew acquired somewhere along the line.  He checked on them after a week or so and the fridge was doing well... BUT when we took them out to go to camp... THEY WERE FROZEN, in the shell!  We did some research and it was recommended to NOT use previously frozen eggs in anything leaven, so we stopped by Trader Joes on our way out of town to get enough for the cinnamon rolls.  They did attempt to scrambled these.  Well, wait, they were DEFINITELY scrambled,  but the consistency was quite interesting to say the least, but still edible.

Friday night Vanessa started the cinnamon rolls with the help of...


And Reanne.
Some of the girls helped her the next morning.

I sure hope everyone can see this video!
This is Dad teaching Brennan how to use pots and pans for a drum set.

A very popular place, the snack line!
I fit right in here - people love to eat! =)

Annabella loves making faces at herself!
I was able to get a picture of the entrance as we drove in Saturday morning.
Most everyone stayed on site, but there were a few of us who commuted.  It is 35 minutes from our house.

In the middle of the main area there is a small fenced-off garden with a butterfly bush.
I took this with my phone, but Matthew was able to get better ones later on.

He and Eric were both over there with their fancy camera's taking pictures.
It is great to stop in the middle of things and take in God's tiny miracles.

Walking down the hill to the beach Saturday mid-morning.
Lots of interesting houses and gardens along the way!

Brennan exploring the area between the place where they raced the boats
and the shoreline.

The young people split into three teams for sand sculpting. 

My handsome man!

This team did an alligator, a smaller one, and a shark.

This one did a big turtle and a little turtle.

Shane and Reanne,
many thanks to them for the coordinating and planning!
(Sorry I forgot to crop this one, Sophie!)
Terry and Melanie visiting while David played in the sand.
This team struggled to find an out-of-the-ordinary theme and got a late start,
but it was a cool idea and they did very well!

The Great Wall of China!
They also did the Great Pyramid, and Mt. Rushmore, complete with smiley faces,
and the Grand canyon! 

Grampsy and Grammy
Tim and Steve visiting
This airplane buzzed over while we were down at the beach.  Looked like a blast!
(What kind of airplane, Daddy?)
 The next 6 pictures are a sequence that Matthew captured.

This is the surfer ducking the wave while paddling back out.
I thought this was a really cool picture!

We came back from the beach and had a lunch of deli sandwiches and chips.  Then the young people and some of the young marrieds played the annual game of 'capture the flag'.  But not just the normal field!  One 'flag' is down in the meadow and the other is near the basketball court and behind the cabins.  It was my first time to play (got battle wounds to show for it) and it was a ton of fun and I'm still sore from all the running!

Claire riding a tricycle and Brennan playing in the dirt.

Amazing sunset that evening
Kind of hard to capture it from up on the hill with houses and trees all around.
Great to see Angela and her family there!

Okay, not sure why those videos disappeared!  I'll have to get Matthew to try to figure it out...
Sunday evening we sang choruses, there were testimonies, prayers requested, and an all around close, cozy time of sharing and encouraging each other in our faith and love for God.
Then we took a break and had snacks while the skit actors and actresses got their things together.  Then much laughter and applause as talent and silliness reigned!
Sunday morning Michael rallied the guys and guided them in making french toast for breakfast
(I was told it was delicious) and a great big mess! (I know that 'cause I helped clean it up ;) 

Good job fellers!
Sunday afternoon we cleaned up, visited, and then some went down to the beach.
We searched for beach glass and watched the waves thunder in.
Took these with my phone, so they aren't the best.

We stopped at Main Street Grill for dinner, along with Dad and Mom, Austin, and Sarah Beth, Tim and Kathy and family, and Danny and Terry and family.

I enjoyed my first Yeager Camp very much!
It reminded me some of Mint Brook camp with the cabins, showers/bathrooms in separate building, and having the meadow and woods.  Also, it is a smaller camp (for here) and just cozy and close.  Times of good sharing in the Christian way and funny times as families together!
