Bemily, Weird Eggs, and Dead Trees


Weird Egg

Dead Trees!

Lots of fun things for mama to come home to!


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI! I hope the turn around day went as good as can be. I assume that is how you celebrated your birthday-maybe even ending with cake! Evonne

  2. Yes, it was turn around day. Drove the boat all night before and then worked all day. Ben and his girlfriend, Emily, are doing the cooking on this trip...I get to dig in the dirt for 10 days!
