Ken and Jemimah have been so busy! You know about Jemimah’s new fridge, and that Ken got it installed. Since that post he has gotten it hooked up to 120v, has put the framing and siding back over the gaping hole, and has fixed the damaged storage area door. I was also able to get in and clean the inside, so Jemimah is ready for the big 9-day trip to Washington!
You can’t really see it in any of the “before” pictures I have, but the storage door was in terrible, terrible sad shape. It just barely stayed closed – most of the time, and the sheet of aluminum that lined the inside of the door was hanging on by a thread and made it very hard to close the door.

Our church, Bitterroot Family Fellowship, went on a camp out this weekend! Jemimah loved getting out and about…
We were at Chief Looking Glass Campground just north of Florence, Montana. I can’t believe that I never knew this place existed – it’s only about 15 minutes away from home, and it’s wonderful! We only saw one pump-style drinking water spigot, but since we haul our own water that wasn’t a big deal to us. If you camp here, it’s easier to bring water.
After Jemimah got settled it was time for a dip in the river. It was a hot, hot, hot afternoon!
(That’s Caleb, Gavin, and me. Oh, and the splash of water over on the left is Nathan. My husband took this shot.) That water was COLD, but it sure felt good!
Saturday we had a little bit of everything weather wise. For a while it was raining, so one of the young women in the church kept the kids occupied with beading. What a great idea!
We had a great barbecue Saturday evening – aren’t these two picknickers adorable?? They set up their own picnic blanket and enjoyed their meal in the shade. (And, of course, they had their trusty pistols at the ready – in case stinky boys came along to steal their watermelon.)
(The sweet little lady on the left is Hope, and the one on the right is my youngest daughter, Kristi.)
It was another hot day, so we did a lot of this…
Sunday morning, after a great breakfast, we did this…
I love worshiping together in the woods! (Thanks to Lenny Standish for the picture.)
And guess what we did later on Sunday…?
(Thanks again, Lenny.)
Unfortunately, the time came for us to head home. It was lot more comfortable hanging out in the water than packing up the camp site, but the work had to be done. It was quite a chore to get the kids out of the water!
Jemimah is back home and mostly cleaned out from the weekend. She’s hoping to have a few more improvements made in the next couple weeks - we’re still on the hunt for a replacement refrigerator. What we need is a Dometic RM2510 or a Norcold n510. If someone finds a good deal on one of those, please let me know! Jemimah would love to have a working fridge before she takes Ken and I off on our 25th anniversary trip in two weeks.
Thanks for stopping by. If you’ve been blogging or posting camping adventures, link them up in the comments – I’d love to see!
