|Enoch enjoys a fresh cup of hot chocolate available at every activity that took place at the lodge. That's roughin' it!|
Archery was one of the favorite outdoor activities. Below, Emma poses with her "left-eyed" bow. Most of us are right eyed. The instructor asked us to put our hands out in front of our selves making a "pumpkin nose" (a triangle) and then to look at her nose through it. She would look at us looking through our hands and tell us what eye we favored.
|Calvin was a crack shot; hardly missed. When they put out the animal targets (you can see the pile of parts in the background) those in Calvin's sites didn't survive.|
|Enoch was super friendly with everyone on the range but his family. He wasn't angry with us just avoidant. He asked all the other adults if he could shoot with them. Here, someone else's grandmother helps Enoch nock an arrow.|
|We cooked over an outdoor fire. For dinner Saturday night we had chicken and dumplings and peach-berry cobbler. Delicious.|
|That same night an expert on Lewis and Clark came to the camp with many artifacts. Emma holds up a replica of Lewis' log.|
|Enoch is wearing Native American sunglasses/goggles holding a baby doll clothed in animal skin. People really are clever no matter the time in history or place. The Lewis and Clark expert is in the checkered shirt.|
|This is us at the lodge just before we left for home Sunday afternoon. Willa is in her church attire. The rest of us changed clothes after our morning church services. We wouldn't have gone to church that day but it was the primary program (explanation of "primary" is at the very bottom of the webpage the link takes you to). The primary program is the one Sunday each year that the children put on a presentation speaking and singing for the main worship service. Lisa is in the primary presidency, I am a primary teacher, and Taran, Enoch, and Calvin all in primary had speaking parts--another reason we were glad this place was close to home.|
