We just got back this morning from a camping trip with our church at Lake San Antonio. It was also our first weekend with our new addition to the family, Spencer. Spencer is a four month old Jack Russell Terrier who quickly secured a place in all our hearts with his loving and playful personality. He made our camping trip even more fun. Our favorite moment was when he discovered several deer eating his dog food and proceeded to fend them off with vicious barking and determined snarls.
Right after I took this picture of Joshua, Spencer, and Arabella, Spencer decided to dive into the lake after a rock one of the kids threw. Atleast we know he can swim.
We encountered lots of different wildlife over the weekend. The main attraction Friday night was a tarantula that someone had picked up on the way out to the lake. The roads were crawling with them in the late afternoon.
The kids got more brave with each picture. The adults were the ones who were creeped out.
Dominic walked around with the tarantula on his hat trying to get a reaction out of people. Most people didn't notice until it was too late.
If there was one thing we learned, it was that Smores are sticky, but they're so good. It seems that everyone was left licking their fingers.
Even the adults weren't immune to the lure of molten marshmallow and chocolate squished between graham crackers.
Deer like Smores too?
