We went camping a few weeks ago with Eva's ward up at Lake Comanche. We only stayed one night but we had a lot of fun. We were the first ones to arrive so we found the only a bit of grass to place our tent on and trees to use as shade. It was so hot when we arrived we went to the lake to cool off. The lake was not what I expected the water was so low and once you got in there was about 6 inches of mud that your feet sink into. I got use to it after a while but didn't stay in long. We brought a raft with us so we tried that out but the air came out too quick to use as a raft, it started to sink, it was still fun though. Aaron and Scott had fun jumping off the rocks into the water. Once we got back to camp we gave Hali a bath in the sink and Dave took some pictures while I took my shower. We then got some wood and made a fire for our dinner, we had yummy beef stew and hot dogs. Later we had s'mores and talked around the campfire. The next day we went back to the lake but a sandier part and then went home. Dave took a lot of great pictures...

Eating around the campfire.

Hali's new words are stinky, cracker, ice, all gone, bubble, hand, help, play, walk, water, knee, teeth, goggle, blue, back( for put it back), food, John, Jared and Eva is Va-va. Hali also knows how to blink and show us her tounge. Mike taught her to say "I love you," it sounds close more like "I loov oo." Uncle Mike was holding her while on the computer and she took the mouse away from him, so he called her a punk and she said "punk" right back so she says that too. Hali is doing well at letting us know when she has to go to the bathroom. The other day I was in the family room napping and she went in the room and stated to wine. Tina walked in and found her siting on her toilet wanting to go. Tina helped her get her diaper off and she went. Same thing happened to Mike a few days later. Hali was taken forever on the toliet. I kept asking if she was done and she would shake her head and say nonchalantly, "no." So I sat there and she started to point at my nose and examining it. Then she touched my nose and said "ouch?"I told her no It's fine. Then she looked at it again and said, "dirty!" I then looked in the mirror and said, "no, it's not dirty it's red. " I have a slight sunburn. She just seemed so concered it was cute. .
