Easter at Camp McDowell

Last month, for the last weekend of spring break, the Butler-Galbraiths headed to Camp McDowell, a summer camp/adult retreat center. It's about 90 minutes north of Tuscaloosa, but we actually drove there from Birmingham. Marysia and Ian had been in New York, visiting her folks. I picked them up at the airport and off we went.



We had a fine time canoing and hiking and hanging out with three or four other families in a lodge (visible at the rear of this photo). Plus, that Sunday was Easter Sunday and to our surprise the Easter Bunny came to Camp McDowell and deposited a couple hundred eggs near our lodge. All the kids had a great time hunting for them.

There's a bunch of pictures from the weekend posted over here:

I used it as an opportunity to try out my new fancy camera. Even got some artistic shots!
