Bentley's First Camping Trip

Well, it has been quite a crazy few weeks around our home!  It started a couple of weeks ago with JennaBeth having Bronchitis.  Then on Thursday of that same week, Mike began to feel really bad.  He ended up in the doctor's office the following Tuesday and was diagnosed with "double walking pneumonia".  That Monday night prior, I was up all night with diarrhea and woke up the next morning vomiting.  Next came Bentley with the stomach bug and then Cecily had it this past weekend.  In the midst of all this, I was experiencing some painful kidney issues - I fear another kidney stone.

Thankfully, Mike is somewhat better.  He ran fever for about 10 days straight with a terrible cough and congestion.  He is still very weak, but is getting better every day.  He was unable to attend the Father/Son Camping trip with the men and boys from our church this past weekend.  A man who attends our church offered to "adopt" Bentley for the weekend and took him on the trip along with his son.  What a blessing this was, because I know one little boy who would have been very disappointed if he had not been able to go!
The guys camped along the Caloosahatchee River.
(Brad - adopted Bentley for the weekend and Dennis - who took the pics for me!  Thanks guys!)

Isn't that the cutest little camper you've ever seen?????

Sorry the pictures were all out of order, but the photo uploader on Blogger was going crazy on me today.  I'm so thankful for how our church family served and loved on us this past week!  We had meals brought to us and then Bentley was blessed with being able to go camping and this mama had pictures taken for her! 

Thank you Northside Baptist family!  We love you and appreciate you so very much!

Wow that sound like a really rough time. I have struggled with kidney stones and pain for about 4 years now. I am saying a prayer for your complete haling for the whole family :)
