McChengverby Beaver's Bend Trip

This weekend we spent the weekend with the McCulloughs, Chengs, and Overbys {thus the McChengverby}. We stayed at a cabin in Beavers Bend State Park, and we had a great time with family!

Our sweet little welcome that our nieces and nephews left in our room :)

On Friday afternoon, we headed out for a hike. We ended up on a harder trail than we had planned for, but made it back around to the trail we started on. The little ones did pretty well for the steep and rocky terrain!

Examining the map...

Back on the right trail!

We also checked out the woodturning exhibit that was on display {yes, woodturning}. The kiddos enjoyed it, especially the toy room and toy-making exhibit.

Granny and Grumpz got to the cabin later that afternoon, and they brought hula hoops for the grandkids...good times had by all :)

On Saturday, the guys headed out for a golf game and the girls enjoyed a quite morning with princess movies and the hot tub. We also took a train ride and headed to the paddle boats.

The cutest little swimmer I ever did see :)

Saturday afternoon we headed out on a canoe trip. We had beautiful weather and we had a great time out on the river.

The very first part of the river was a little rough, and we had a little mishap. Granny and Lovie hit some rocks and took on water, so they had to be rescued. Thankfully the rest of the canoe trip was smooth sailing. And don't worry...I made sure they both could swim and were being rescued before I started snapping photos :)

The onlookers

When they finally got them righted, they tipped over again!

Back to safety...and dry land :)

Saturday night we hosted the Granny Olympics, complete with a procession for the torch and judges.

 And of course, the rest of the time was filled with games, s'mores, BB gun competitions, meals out on the deck, and lots of laughter.

It was a great weekend, and we are so thankful for the family time. We loved having all of the nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and grandparents together. We look forward to next year's McChengverby trip :)
