Weekend at Berkeley Springs

We just returned from a wonderful weekend with friends at a small cabin in West Virginia. We headed out there on Friday after work and met the Turpins and the Robinsons.
Logan had a blast playing with Jeffy and Ethan. It rained for most of the time we were there but there was a screened patio room as well as a game room complete with an air hockey table. Jeffy and Ethan also showed Logan how to play Mario kart on their game boys.
This picture is a tad out of order but I could not leave it out. We were getting ready to BBQ out on the front patio and there was this bowl filled with sand for an ash tray and what looked like somebody's abandoned toy spider. Jake went and tapped the bowl to see if it was real and sure enough, the giant spider came to life and started circling the inside of the bowl. We all freaked out to think that there were spiders this big running around the forest there...
Addy did great, we were a little worried that she would have trouble sleeping in a strange place, but she turned out to be a great little camper.
I promise we don't coach him to pose, he just does it. What a cheese ball...
The hot tub was awesome. On the first night we all sat out in the rain and talked until past midnight.
Burgers, dogs and brats, doesn't get any better than that. Due to the rain we had to move it to the front porch, but the resulting dinner was delicious.

Spencer, just wanted you to know how much I love you. Thanks for being a good husband and dad. One of my previous comments indicated how much we love our daughters, but we certainly feel the same about our sons, Jason, Cam, Spencer, & Ryan, and of course, our awesome, handsome, great, precious, and did I say awesome grandsons! Thank you all for being so great! You have a very proud(only in a good way) mom and dad, gwamma & gwampa!
