The Kings go to the mountains

Spend two days with friends at their cabin in the mountains? Why yes, I think we will.  Even Jesse, less than 24-hours post wisdom teeth removal, decided to recover next to nature rather than at home in bed.

Hot dogs, s'mores, mountain pies (just for kicks, ask Shoun what happens when you make a mountain pie without filling - whoops), hikes, the outhouse, deer tracks, family secrets shared 'round the campfire, tick removal...

Swimming in the creek in the spring... Brrr...
Reading in the morning sun...

And did we mention how we got to the cabin?
Fishing... 3 for Isaac, 1 for the teacher. It was rumored that Isaac caught more fish in 1 hour than the owner of the rod has caught in 2 - 3 years. This may or may not be true...



Mr. Victor enjoying the great mountain air, and showing off his standing abilities...

Man to man chats on the cabin porch...

And some of us learned some gun safety from the best teacher and received lessons in how to kill Bambi's parents. Okay, they only learned how to aim at cans and water bottles but we all know where that leads, pictures of smiling friends holding the heads of dead deer...




Poor HopeAnne, she looks like she's trying to lift a bazooka...

Maybe the most special moment of all was acting upon a nudge from God, to reenact a healing story from the Bible, and to have Eden pray for Victor's healing, surrounded by all that God made, and Christian friends to love, pray for, and support our family.
