Our dear friends, the Witciks, recently came for their traditional mid-summer visit. We finally have named this event....CAMP SKAUDIS! Camp Skaudis has a little something for everyone: abundant woods to roam or ride the 4-wheeler; a quiet lake to swim, fish, or tube; comfortable couches and quiet (hahaha) to take an afternoon nap; lots of people around to keep you company; and there's always something good to eat.
We really look forward to having our friends visit. The kids, like the adults, seem to pick up right where we left off.
Audrey, Ellie, and Nora loved dancing with E's umbrellas.
Noah and Nora are a month apart. Perhaps they will marry one day?!
The kids loved riding the 4-wheeler.
I think the 4-wheeler was Noah's favorite part of his stay!
The troops headed down to the lake....
Checking out a school of minnows.
Baby Eric is the most well-mannered baby ever.

Martha was not excited about waiting on the dock. Mike's turn!

Look at all those adults lined up, ready to catch children!

Noah experienced a "Garage Buzz Cut" with William. Don't they look cute with their summer hair?!
We had one rain day, but decided to let the kids play outside anyway. Ellie and William having a water fight!
Girls and puddles.
The kids got creative and made bridges.
