Part One of the Lake Portion of our Trip

We spent the next part of our trip at Camp Creek which is a small private lake just out side of College Station. Jerry Hogan (Hogan's name sake, former elder of our church and owner of the company I worked for during college) let us use his place for a reunion of our closest college friends. We all had a great time catching up. I already miss everyone and wish we could have been together longer. However, since several of them are with out children they may have been ready for us to all go AWAY! :)
The deer there would just come right up and eat out of our hands. I did feed the deer but I had more fun taking tons of pictures of them. Check out these bucks. Beck and Hogan waiting patiently for the deer to come eat their corn.
Hogan trying to get a little closer.
...and she eats it.
All the boys ready to feed the deer.
Hogan diving into the lake. All the other kids tried and tried but Hogan was the only one that could dive with form.

Gates is really proud the deer just ate out of his hand.
Gobble Gobble. Oink Oink. Some of them were little piggies. The kids would pet all over their heads and they didn't care a bit. They just wanted more corn.
Isn't she a beauty?
BAMBI? Is that you? OK I know that was really cheesy what can I say it was just so stinken cute. I wanted to take one home.

That is amazing that you children get to experience the outdoors... and see deer... what an experience they will remember forever...and great pics... I guess your new toy is treating you well.

Great pictures! We love going to camp creek and staying at the Russell's place. In fact we are going in a couple of weeks with the youth team from church.

I love the pictures! You are such a great photographer! This looks like such an incredible experience. We haven't seen deer this close except in a petting zoo.

It was so great getting to meet you guys. I have heard so many good things about you and now I know those were all so true. I hope all is well and the kids are getting excited about school. Have a great week! Kathryn
