Back in August, we went up to the family cabin for some much needed relaxation. It was so nice!! We took our friends, the Peacocks, and the boys had fun playing with friends the whole time. We walked to the beaver pond, explored the bear cave, hike to the water tower, and went to the reservoir . It was lots of fun!

Sunset - so beautiful!

I want out!

Silly boy

He did NOT like the life jacket

M and E entertained themselves for 10-15 minutes jumping off this tiny rock

Love this - Daddy and his boys

Last year, when we went, the beach was so perfect! This year, you sunk up to your ankles in mud. What else do you do but throw it back to the lake?

Jamie - one of the few times he just relaxes.

Best friends

Nice throw W!


The littles entertained themselves throwing all the rocks into the lake.

Helping hands

Bear cave!

Monster does not like to be left behind at all!

Love these kids!

Updated Pictures of the boys

I decided that I needed some updated pictures of my boys to post on my wall, so we decided to go up the canyon today. We packed the boys into the car and drove to Cascade Springs. I guess I didn't realize that it seems to be the thing to do on Conference Sunday in Utah. It seemed that all of Utah County was there and on the road. I tell ya, it was a good thing Mike drove because I would have been a nervous wreck on those narrow roads with steep drops and all the cars! We didn't even stop at Cascade Springs because of how many people there were, but kept driving to a little campground a couple of miles away from the springs where it was more secluded.

Monster fell asleep and was less than cooperative for pictures as we had to wake him up. Little Man found a grasshopper (and caught it!) and then we had to keep giving the grasshopper to Monster to keep him happy. He thought it was his, which made E sad. Here are some of my favorite pictures.
