Take Me Back Tuesday ~Sturgis Week 3

I believe I mentioned last week that for us Sturgis means a huge camping trip with friends. So here we have some of my favorite pictures from around camp. I am guessing these pictures are from around 1999. (Don't forget to write dates on you photos!)

This first picture is Hubby, one of my favorite pictures of him. He is a little camera shy to say the least, so it's always nice to get a good shot of him.


Some of the boys at camp.

Drinking a few Cajun Poppers with friends. (Absolut Peppar vodka, Clamato juice and a Pepperoncini)

What happens when you outlast the rain!

This is the week I usually miss going to Sturgis the most! But, Once Upon A Time, a had an opportunity to take a job. A good job, but two of the people I would be working with also went to Sturgis! Since there were going to be only 4 of us in the office, that pretty much put me out of the running to have any time off during Sturgis week at all. I had to make the right choice, the job! Then...along came a beautiful little baby girl, then a beautiful little baby boy!! Pretty much shutting down my options to return to Sturgis anytime in the near future. You see, the only people that I would be comfortable leaving my children with for an overnight all go to Sturgis! So yes, sometimes I miss it, but I look now at my kids and know that I would miss them more!!

Please keep precious baby Stellan in your thoughts and prayers! If you are not familiar with his story please visit my charming kids. You may also keep updated on twitter at #Stellan or at ##prayforstellan

That's a great shot of your hubby! In my house, I'm the one who is camera shy.

Like you, I've been praying for Stellan!

The kids were my guess last week but I wasn't sure. Isn't it funny how kids can change our priorities in life. I know mine did!
Hey just remember you can look back at all the great memories you have of when you did go.

Being a mommy means sacrifice but like you, I would give up everything I was, to be the mommy I am.

Praying for Stellan - I haven't had the strength to read today's updates yet.

Hoping for a Happy Tuesday and wish the same for you!

My hubby doesn't like the camera either! And don't forget to write important info on the back of pics too! Otherwise you end up like me. I was handed down tons of family photos and most do not have names,dates, places or anything on them! Very frustrating!
(Love the rainbow pic!!)

(And yes, statcounter will also show you what is downloaded!)

My husband hates his photo taken, too.

What fabulous photos and memories.

Looks like good times. And I also have a husband who hates to have his picture taken. Imagine that.
