Camping @ Fairfield Lake State Park

DSCF1121

Will, Griffin, and I got to experience Easter in a non-traditional way this weekend.  We attempted our first camping trip as a family instead of attending an Easter Sunday service.  But that doesn’t mean that we didn’t celebrate Jesus any less.  We got to celebrate Jesus in the great outdoors — and His presence was stunning.

On Sunday morning, a storm blew through the park.  Will and I were prepared and headed into town so that we didn’t have to hide out in the tent through the rain and wind.  My attitude and feelings towards the rain were…. bitter to say the least.  I thought our weekend was ruined.  Little did I know, God was revealing himself to us through the beauty that followed the storm — just like the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.  The day turned out to be gorgeous and we practically got the entire state park to ourselves.

We are blessed that we got to opportunity to share this weekend together.  It was sooo much fun.  We will definitely make it a tradition to camp with our family in the future.

Here are some pictures of our weekend at Fairfield Lake State Park.

Our campsite!  We were surrounded by beautiful trees.

We sorta forgot lighter fluid…. but we had fun trying to light our own fire.  Eventually we were successful… after a trip to town! 😉 DSCF1030

We hope you enjoyed looking at just a few of the pictures we took.  We are thankful that we have a God that created such beauty all around us and even more thankful that He sent his one and only son to die on the cross for our sins!
