Glacier Bible Camp and Vacation Time

Part of our family’s tradition, is to go to Glacier Bible Camp for our vacation. This year, camp started on July 3rd and went through July 10.  We had a very good time.  Here are some snippets and pictures of this year’s vacation.  Click your Internet Browser’s “back” button to return here after viewing the slide shows.  Enjoy!

We spent July 4th at Ashley Lake, near Kalispell.  We had lots of fun with lots of friends and lots of relatives.  The kids got plenty wet, we did plenty of boating, we ate plenty of food, then we watched plenty of fireworks.

On Monday, July 6,  Ana and several other girls were Crowned as Honor Stars. Each girl spent a couple of year meeting several requirements that include a lot of Bible reading and memorization.  Great Job Ana!

On Wednesday, July 6, the camp had a parade.  This is about the third year for the parade, and it has become a fun part of family camp.  This year’s theme was NASCAR.  Here are some of the imaginative entries.

Our last full day at camp was Friday, July 10. We enjoyed a bit of time at Lion Lake, a small lake near Hungry Horse lake.  It has become part of our time at camp and enjoy getting wet here most every year.

Spoon Lake

A few years ago, we stopped by a small lake (pond?) on the way home from Glacier Bible Camp, to stretch our legs.  While fiddling around, one of the kids found an old spoon.  We took that spoon and buried it at the base of a certain tree, and christened the lake “Spoon Lake”.  We though it would be fun to check in the future to see if the spoon was still there.

This year, on the way home, we did stop once again at “Spoon Lake”.  After searching under the wrong tree for several minutes, we picked one last tree before leaving.  Lo and behold, there was the spoon.  It was full of pitch and took some time to clean it off.  We got some pictures and once again buried it for a future visit.

Where is “Spoon Lake” you ask?  We can’t tell you; you might go and find our bit of treasure.
