Around Camp at Murchison Falls

Just a few more pictures from Murchison Falls.  (This blog serves as our scrap book too, so thanks for bearing with me.  :)  )

The first week of vacation, Eric was struggling with, what we are pretty sure was, a spider bite.  The wound went from being two little pin pricks to a nasty large wound and the whole time he was feeling quite yuck.  He and Talitha enjoyed a nap together under the shade of a shelter.

Sleeping babies are so sweet!

The lodge also had a swimming pool that we took advantage of daily...especially since we were in one of the hottest parts of Uganda.

The monkeys would sometimes sit and watch us playing.  They were probably thinking to themselves, "That crazy family makes as much ruckus as we do!"  And as a side note...this is the only pool in Uganda that I've ever seen with a fence around it...one might think, "how nice of them to care about the safety of children."  But no...it was actually meant to keep the hippos from going skinny dipping at midnight... haha! :)

Our tent city.

Our last night at the lodge the staff, whom we had gotten to know a little bit, surprised us with this cake.  They were so sweet!

And what happens when it's past 8 pm and you feed a one year old a slice of chocolate cake?

Drama, laughter, silliness and funny faces abound...

And on that same evening the Lord blessed us with a beautiful sunset!

If I had written the story of what my life would look like, I don't think that I ever would have written it in such as way as to include a line about me photographing our 8 precious children while they watch the sun set over the Nile... I'm so thankful that God did...His lines have indeed fallen in pleasant places...what a beautiful inheritance...
