Pix from Crater Lake Trip

We headed down to the pristine Crater Lake in Southern Oregon last weekend and "camped" in a yurt. Thankfully, the yurt had electricity so Jon made an emergency trip to Wal-Mart for a fan that kept us fairly cool at night since it was hot, hot there.

We explored an old gold mining town called Golden and peaked in all the windows (my favorite thing to do!). We met up with friends for a long lunch by the lake, and then late at night, Karly and I went outside and looked at the thousands of stars above the campground. She began praying, thanking God for the gift of stars and their beauty. When she said, "Amen," a shooting star traveled across the sky, and we celebrated the "God sighting" together. He is SO good!!

Birthday Month

June is birthday month in the Dobson house. Karly turned six (what happened to my baby?), and Kiki moved on to the big F-I-V-E. They celebrated with a few friends at the movie theatre and then out for pizza and Pinkie Pie Pony cake. Life just doesn't get any better than that. :)

Here are a few pix from June.
