Well, we spent the 4th of July weekend in Strawberry Point at my aunt and uncles cabin. We left on Thursday afternoon, after planning to leave at about 8 or 9 am. On Friday morning, Jeff went golfing with Ty, Joey and uncle Lee in Cedar City. When he got back to the cabin we hung out with the kiddies for a while and then drove to Brian Head to meet up with Ty and Kristen and their kids for the fireworks show. The Fire Dept. put on a GREAT show. I have never seen Brian Head so PACKED!!!! There were cars and people everywhere. But, we had a great time. Jeff and Ty even had a great time.
On Saturday, Ty, Kris, and their kids came over to the cabin to hang out with us for a day. It was such a fun and relaxing day. We 4 wheeled, and took the kids fishing for a couple of hours. Scott also showed up in the morning for a couple of fly fishing sessions with Jeff. We had so much fun, with everyone.We now have proof that Kristen is indeed outdoorsy (is that a word)!!!! She rode a 4 wheeler and even fished!!!! On Sunday, I went for a ride with the kids right before it started raining and hailing. I also ran into the whole Horton, Bawden, Rhodes, and Brinkerhoff family. It was fun to see them up there.
We were getting ready to go home later in the afternoon, and then decided to stay for another day, against Braxton's wishes. He was really anxious to go back home on Sunday, he didn't want to miss any days of school so he can get perfect attendance. I guess I won't have to worry about him missing any school or ditching.
We came home on Monday, and I was wishing I was back at the cabin. The heat is TERRIBLE here. I guess we will just have to find a pool to go swimming at.

Why did you let your kids get so big? I can remember yesterday when Drazen and Braxton ran around showing me their "toilets". Becca and I remember those days well.

Your family needs to go on a camping trip with me and Jennie. We would have so much fun. Good luck at girls camp this week.
