Gospel Wakeup Call

Tomorrow we head off to Falcon Ridge. It will be my second time going. I went two years ago and only got to stay one night but it was great fun. Jay went on Wed and staked out a good site and setup everyone's tents. Erika and Sammy went today. The rest of the crowd and us are going tomorrow. Keegan and I will spend the morning getting set and then pickup Jeff from work on the way. I have to take the dogs to the kennel, pack the car and the cooler and leave the house clean in case we have any showings. I think we are ready and Keegan is so excited about sleeping outside and trying out his new air mattress. I also brought his harmonica in case he gets the urge to play. I am not really stressed because it will be such a kid friendly environment and all around laid back. Two years ago when Erika was pregnant with Sammy she and I talked about being able to bring our children some day. That day has arrived.
