Camping.





We spent Friday night this weekend enjoying the cooler temperatures at a gorgeous Missouri State Park south of St. Louis. It was Kate's birthday, and a group of the (our former) Singles Ward got together to celebrate with tents, Coleman stoves, camp stools, and fresh air.
While sleeping on the hard ground was a little tricky for me at this point in my life, as was the having to go to the bathroom every four minutes, Joe and I LOVED it. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect night to do it, and it was nice to get out of town for a little while.

Tonight, we get to have authentic Korean food because Mom Vicki is making us dinner, and her 1 1/2 years in Seoul has given her some new skills! We've had so much fun with her being in town for the past week, and we're glad she's still around for one more week before heading back to the other side of the world. And Noah seems to recognize that his Grandma is around-- he moved around BIG TIME for her the other day... as if he knew she'd be going away again soon and he had to perform now or forever hold his peace!!

Hope your weekend was lovely, too!
