    Ladonna, you are too kind to Frenchy -- can't you tell he's taking pictures of the campsite galvanized trash cans....it's never ever boring with Frenchy around.

    As always those are great pictures -- there is a reason you are our official photographer you know...slightly under paid but always appreciated.

    Hugs

    Oh, wow. Tell me again which campground that is? We can't generally make it to the annual event, but sometime during the summer I would love to hit that campground. We've been talking about floating that river, and hopefully next summer will be it.

    Love the pictures - especially the swimming hole, which doesn't look so big until you see the little tiny people on the shore!

    Oh, would it be too much to ask if there were any pictures of Don & Dennis' ceremony that they wouldn't mind posting/having posted?

    Hey All,

    WOW, WOW, WOWIIEEE!

    I didn't know this location was so beautiful. I know there have been other suggestions for going back to one of our original campgrounds from when we started these picnics, but I missed this one and after seeing the pictures, I vote to have the Spring get together here. I bet this location is gorgeous in the Spring!

    Great pics Ladonna, as always, looking forward to more of them.

    Christine, I'm not certain, but I think Don & Dennis decided to postpone until they could arrange for a more intimate ceremony including just those who want to attend.

    Hi Christine!

    Really is beautiful there huh? The campout was at Steel Creek, near Ponca. There's a to a map in the 4th Annual thread.

    Yes, the ceremony will be in Eureka Springs Saturday, October 7th. P.M. me if you'd like to attend and I'll send you the particulars. We'll have pics up afterwards.
