My Beautiful Baby Boy?

I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't
help myself. Levi is such a "pretty" boy
that I thought if I put his hair in
piggytails that he could probably
pass for a girl-i was right. Some day,
years from now, i'll be able to pull out
this picture and embarrass him. See,
parenting has it's fringe benefits.

The picture below captures one

of Levi's favorite looks which seems

to be "buzz off-i have no interest in you".

Here's Levi hanging out with the innertubes

at Cousin Camp '07.

My Girl

Here's a couple pictures of me and my little girl. She is
getting big already. She no longer has that newborn look
to her. She is in the 95th percentile for her height, so she's
pretty long and I am hoping that maybe that will stick and
she'll be tall like my dad and brothers. Tall or short though...
she is CUTE!

Cousin Camp '07

We had a great time again this year at our 3rd annual cousin camp. This year
we let the guys come along too so it was a family affair. The kids pretty much swam and
ate lots candy. This year we had the addition of grandma's SnackShack which was a hit
with all the kids. They got an allotment of tickets each day and then for special behavior
they could earn more tickets to spend. This was great for me because I just offered up
grandma tickets to the girls to keep an eye on Levi for me while I floated around on a raft.
The only complaint we had were the mornings when levi got up at 5:30 or so and we had to entertain him until the rest of "camp" woke up. One morning aaron took levi in the van and put a movie on for him and drove around for a couple of hours. You can imagine how exciting that was for him. But, for most of the time levi just ran around either in a diaper or nothing at all and sporting a life jacket. It was pretty funny. Thanks Steve and Rach for all the great memories!

Since i am on a trip down memory lane I thought I would post one of my favorite pictures. This photo was taken at Rocking Chair lake in Upper Michigan. As you can see I thought that my brother was a king when I was younger. I think I may be in 7th grade in this picture. I was trying to be as tough and cool as my bro. That was tough to do when you are in seventh grade and your brother is 20. I gave it a pretty good shot though.

I have many memories of following my brother around on all sorts of adventures. From hunting porcupines with homemade spears to dressing up like Skelletor and being beat with a forty-five pound sword for youth camp.

I am glad that Jacob and Levi will each have a brother to grow up with. There is nothing quite as grand as the bond between brothers.

Bible Camp

I have been at Bible Camp all this week. As expected it has been a great experience. Wayne Northrup preached. Some of you may know Wayne from North Central or from hearing him speak at some event or camp. He did a great job. The altar times were very good. I think I prayed with about 17 kids to get Baptized in the Holy Spirit. This weeks altars were some of the best that I have had the chance to experience.

It made me think about the bible camp I went to when I was a kid. I know that I was baptized in the Holy Spirit at Lake Hellen or Lake Ellen cannot remember the exact name. But I definitely remember the camp itself. I thought you would all like to see a picture I found of me when I was at bible camp. This picture has to be from 1986 I would have been in 7th grade.
