Are 984 Photos Enough?

Well, I ended up taking almost 2,000 photos during our vacation and ended up deleting half of them. (Part of photography…snap twenty photos for the one perfect photo!) So here are 74 of my final 984 photos. ;)

In the car…

We had just arrived on Wednesday afternoon. The campsite provides wheelbarrows to cart our things down the long trail to our campsite.

I love the photo on the left…so silly. (Of course Jo had to help by carrying his little camp chair!)

Camping Trip 2010 028 Camping Trip 2010 032
Setting up camp! (And Micaiah acts cool)

Camping Trip 2010 033 Camping Trip 2010 051
Our two tents. The one on the right is an 8-man…pretty big! =) The photo on the right was taken at a place called Shately Springs…;)

Camping Trip 2010 057 Camping Trip 2010 070
We have a favorite Mexican restaurant that we go to…that’s where we were in the photo on the right. (It seems a little weird…two Mexican restaurants, three Japanese restaurants, and a Latin Cafe up in a little mountain town where there are only Southern people…)  =)

Another place we always go to is the Cheese Factory…that’s Jo with the giant mouse. =) On the right is the view you get upon leaving the parking lot…this is the path we trudge down to get to our camp site! =)

After the rain, who can resist getting photos of water droplets?

We spent one afternoon playing out in the field – Dad hit the balls, we caught them. =)

Ruth, Micaiah, and I ready to catch the ball! (photo courtesy of Maria!)

Dad showed Jo how to hold the bat.

At our favorite coffee shop!

The coffee shop – and Lydia on her bike. We all got to ride around a nice little park. ;)

Micaiah with his bike and tire.

Jo, of course, got sleepy on another trip to Wal-Mart. =) The rather dramatic photo on the right is Micaiah and Dad trying the catch the ball I was pitching to them. (he he he)

Camping Trip 2010 467 Camping Trip 2010 481
Micaiah ready to catch the ball, and I guess I was pitching?

Camping Trip 2010 493 Camping Trip 2010 494
Another Beasley tradition (that’s also a general camping tradition!) is, of course, S’mores. Jo couldn’t get enough!

Camping Trip 2010 506 Camping Trip 2010 509
Maria learned how to string a fishing pole from Dad… =)

Camping Trip 2010 517 Camping Trip 2010 525
In the tent!

Camping Trip 2010 529 Camping Trip 2010 537
Dad tried some McDonald’s coffee…which is pretty amazing because my Dad roasts his own beans and we are kind of “coffee snobs.” =D

Camping Trip 2010 542 Camping Trip 2010 583 Camping Trip 2010 585 Camping Trip 2010 619
Maria fishing!

Micaiah cast aaaaaand….

Camping Trip 2010 656 Camping Trip 2010 666
…caught a bush! =D Maria took this photo of me on the right. =)

Camping Trip 2010 668 Camping Trip 2010 673 Camping Trip 2010 687 Camping Trip 2010 694
Micaiah had to rescue one of Maria’s flip flops…

Camping Trip 2010 706 Camping Trip 2010 712
I, of course, had to get into the water with my camera to get these shots. (Don’t ask me what Micaiah’s doing in the second one…I have no idea!)

Camping Trip 2010 724 Camping Trip 2010 741
My flip flops had to be rescued, too…and Micaiah fell down in the process! =D

Camping Trip 2010 749 Camping Trip 2010 762
I think the bug was a locust…we’d never seen one before!

Camping Trip 2010 786 Camping Trip 2010 794
And Micaiah catches a canoe. (No, just kidding…it just looks like that!)

Camping Trip 2010 842 Camping Trip 2010 847
I demonstrate to Ruth and Lydia how to cast.

Camping Trip 2010 859 Camping Trip 2010 861
Jo’s first fishing experience!

And, finally, packing up to go home.

Hope you all enjoyed the photos! Don’t forget to take my survey on the right sidebar…I’m trying to collect people’s opinion of my blog…and I’d love to collect some followers, too! =)
Here’s a quick video of us fishing to end it all…

Wow! I love the ?river/lake? you guys went to. And it looks like you all had a TOTAL blast. I know what you feel like, when you take a billion pictures and have to get rid of more than half of them! But I'm glad you had fun. You'll have to remind me...how many people are there in your family? 9 for us. =D
