It's time for Beulah

We arrived at Beulah on Friday just in time for the evening service. It was a hot day and a very hot tabernacle, but it was great to be back at Beulah. Papa Doan had some guests visiting and so the cottage was full.

Saturday morning we were treated to omelettes. Very yummy. 

The weekend was very hot so the kids were happy to spend the afternoons at the beach.

In this photo Peter is not actually in the water but hanging out with some friends. He was having a great time either way.

Sunday morning on our way to church.

We always have to make choices and Emily had to choose what she was going to do this summer. She ended up in Wisconsin and a very good friend who lives out west arrived back in the maritimes just after she left. He will be heading back west just before she comes back. She was sooooo disappointed that she would miss him. He and another friend wandered by the cottage so of course, I asked if I could take their picture. That's one of the neat things about Beulah is that a lot of old friends really make the effort to connect once again.

Allison needed new steps on his cottage so that was a project.

Gaëlle was so excited to head back down the hill to VBS. And look where she is? Right in the middle of things. Peter is in his first year of going to the top of the hill for the youth program. He was thrilled to be there and from all accounts, the first day was amazing. He loves it!!!

Dick's guests headed home Monday morning and Josh and I had to leave Sunday afternoon. But we'll be back next weekend. While Dick's friends were at Beulah, they were in charge of cooking. But now Robin is in charge of meals and Dick is in charge of clean up. I think it works out very well for them.

Dick bought a big Kawasaki Mule for Caton's Island. Dean brought it over to Beulah and Robin and Gaëlle were so anxious to try it out. The 2 of them went for a very long spin around the camp. From the smiles, I think they are big fans.
