Project 365 ~ Week 29: Campmeeting!

It was campmeeting this week! Hands down my favorite week of the year. We have a week of fellowship, worship and it is by far the best week of the year for me! I may do a post later in the week about this years experience, but for now here are my pictures. I actually have more than one every day!

Woot Woot!

Sunday, July 15

My son and his family came out almost every night. It was so nice to see my granddaughter enjoy all the joys of campmeeting just like mine did when they were little. I can share that I had many moments of Déjà vu as I watched her run around, play in the saw dust and generally have a wonderful time!

As we were enjoying the evening worship service the sky was having a worship service of it’s own.

It was shinning down on us and it was absolutely beautiful!

Muffinhead spent the night with me in my cabin on Monday night. It was another milestone. Now that she is bigger and potty trained she is old enough to actually spend the night with grandma during Campmeeting. She slept in a bit on Tuesday morning and I snapped a picture of sleeping beauty while I was enjoying my coffee!

The newest addition to the campground this year is this sweet little butterfly garden. It is up by the children's area. They have planted Butterfly Bushes, Black Eyed Susan's, Purple Coneflowers and several other types of flowers that will attract butterflies. I can’t wait to see how this will look next year.

The craft protect the children made were these cute little pin wheels. I am going to have to investigate how they made these.

It looks like they are made out of plastic cups! It was just too cute!

Here it this years picture of the arbor!

The campground gets more beautiful each year. Our campground committee and the Campground caretaker are making wonderful improvement on the grounds. Each year I see new plantings to the landscape. In a few years it will be just amazing when all the new planting are well established.

I am a sucker for herb gardens. We have  very small kitchen on the grounds. I am not sure who planted it but there are now two lovely herb gardens planted outside the front of the kitchen. It is a sweet idea, but in reality not much real cooking goes on in the kitchen. It is mainly used as a storage areas. There is an oven, and refrigerator, ice machine and all there other things necessary to kitchen.The garden is a nice touch and it just makes the kitchen look more quant and inviting!

This is one of my favorite trees on the campground. It has this lovely ferny moss looking stuff growing on it!

Well I could not restrain myself. I usually also have to make a Wal-Mart run to either replace a fan that has broken or replace an old lawn chair or some other campmeeting necessity. This year I had to get a new cooler, after I found my cooler I made my way over to the lawn and garden center and they had some hanging baskets on sale. Naturally I had to get two to make our new front porch a bit more homey!

Y’all I think we can call this a semi success! Last year the corn we planted was a total failure. It was gummy, pasty and inedible!

This year I planted another round of corn, I was able to get the silver queen, which I was not able to find last year. I can share that out of one whole packet of seeds we got about a 1/4 of the packet to sprout and grow. Out of that we harvested about 6 ears of corn. Out of that six ears there were two ears that were fully formed and actually looked like an ear of corn was supposed to look. After cooking it up and having it for supper Saturday evening I can proudly say that it was not half bad. It was not the best sweet corn I have ever had but I was still very good!

I am super excited! Now I am glad I yielded to the Hub’s wishes and planted the corn. I wasn’t going to fool with it given our poor results last year, but he looked so disappointed when I said that so I just went ahead and put some in the ground.

The things ya do for love…..well now I am glad that I did!

Well that’s it for me this week!

For more P365 y’all head over to Sara’s and link up!

Happy summer, but can you believe that it technically is almost over.

In these parts school will be starting back in about two weeks!

YIKES!

Blessings

what a fun week! Does your church own the camp ground? I miss camping a lot....we would burn up if we did it here!

Loved the camp shots. The how to eat a cupcake and sleeping beauty shots were priceless. I loved everything about your week...including that delicious looking banana pudding.

What a wonderful and beautiful week! Love the memories that are being shared from one generation to the next.

Loved the many photos and hearing how much fun you had this week!

Those cupcake photos are too precious :) I love how you and your son are helping his daughter make campmeeting memories too!

Congrats on the corn, too. I have a funny story about growing corn in Africa. I'll have to share it sometime -- it involved a yard worker who knew just enough English to be dangerous :)

There you are torturing me again with that banana pudding - I'm gonna have to make me one very soon!

Love the Muffinhead shots - she's so cute.

Glad you had some corn success. I wish the stuff in our garden had ended up being corn instead of sorghum :)
