Trip to Alabama
Our family was able to go to Alabama this year to visit Nathan and Charity (Philip's brother and family) and attend our church's connectional camp. We left on a Saturday and stayed with Nate's family until Wednesday when we drove over to Pell City. The boys travel very well and both enjoyed the new books/toys/gadgets that we had purchased to amuse them.
Allan enjoyed listening to an unabridged audio version of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with us as we drove along. The following pictures are of the trip down to Alabama. I have no pictures of camp meeting. Philip and I agreed that when you have children it's important to expose them to the camp meeting experience/atmosphere but you as a parent have to adjust your expectations of how much you will gain from the services and how many services you'll be able to attend. The boys did very well considering all of the adjustments they had to make and the amount of sitting they had to endure. It was so terribly hot that they really didn't feel like playing outside a whole lot and that made things even more challenging. I'm glad they have this opportunity to make some wonderful memories as I did with my Grandparents at Roxberry Holiness camp growing up.
