Oster Camping 2010

This past weekend, we went as a family to Fort Mountain State Park for a one-night camping trip. We arrived just in time to set up camp and cook our hotdogs over the fire.
We borrowed a large tent and slept in it together.
The views from Fort Mountain are incredible!
On Saturday, after breakfast and breaking camp, we hiked around a small lake and had a picnic snack.
Body of water + Osters = throwing rocks

Naomi Goes to Disney World 2

Naomi and Grandad had a wonderful time at Disney World!
Some highlights for Naomi were watching cartoons on the airplane, seeing Cinderella's castle, getting Ariel's signature, going to China, going on a safari in the Animal Kingdom (not pictured above), eating at the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney, meeting people from so many different countries, swimming in the hotel pool, and being with Grandad!
Grandad and Naomi were able to visit the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, the Animal Kingdom, and Epcot. They took each day pretty easy, and at Naomi's suggestion, swam in the hotel pool for their "break time." Naomi enjoyed being pretty much a princess: ordering whatever food she wanted, buying presents for the family (thanks! Naomi and Grandad!), and staying up late. One night Grandad shared his Kit-kat with Naomi after their late dinner and had the fun of watching her get extremely hyper and silly. That was her latest night, and she wrote in her journal (also where she got character's signatures) "I will not go to bed until the clock says 11:00 EVERY NIGHT." Grandad said that she missed being silly with her daddy at home, and I think she missed us all. Grandad allowed her to use an extra cell phone of his and she called home pretty much every morning and every night.
Thanks, Grandad, for this wonderful experience for Naomi. She loved it, and will treasure her memories there forever!

Jacob Goes To School

One of the helpers in Jacob's classroom took some pictures of them working in school. 
Jacob is doing really well!

Naomi Goes to Disney World

Naomi and her Grandad are in Disney World!
 She left the house a simple girl, and will come back a world traveler!
After flying to Orlando, Naomi discovered her name being called by a driver.
As someone in our church warned, Grandad better be careful that Disney World doesn't try to keep her because they mistake her for one of the princesses!
