More Summer Fun!!!!

I wasn't finish with this post, but my computer is acting up so I think I will post what I have and try to do another post later today or tomorrow. Hopefully this post will make some sense. It begins by talking about our four wheeling trip we took with Monica and her family. I still have some pictures to post and will try with the next one.

Gavin and his dad as we are taking off the first day. Gavin was already to enjoy the ride. As the day wore on, Gavin would not set still, he was always moving around and then, of course, he finally fell asleep. Sean had his hands full trying to keep him on the bike. But I think Gavin was having a blast - there was no crying at all.

On Saturday morning, after Monica and Sean and their family left. Daryl and I went on a ride that turned out to be absolutely beautiful as you can see in this picture. The ride was a little more technical then others but it was amazing. I sure enjoy riding those four wheelers.

The week of August 16 through the 20th was spend in Provo, Utah attending Education Week. It was a great week and something that I have always wanted to do. There were 100's of classes and subjects to chose from. Daryl's dad and Judy were able to attend with us. We would get up at 7 a.m. and go all day every day until after 7 p.m. It was an exhausting week, but well worth it. This picture is one taken as we were preparing to head off for the day. The first class we attended was on Abraham Lincoln - what an amazing man he was.

This picture was taken right before a lecture began on the 2nd coming. This is one of the few classes we actually attended together. There were so many to chose from and you just wanted to go to all of them.

Sunday, August 22, 2010, Audrey Elizabeth received a name and a blessing in church. Her dad did a wonderful job and Audrey received a great blessing. What a wonderful little girl she is. I don't have any pictures of this ocassion becuase I haven't received any as of yet (hint hint.

Penn and Logan

We have been really busy this past two weeks. But while I am waiting to get the pictures so I can update our blog, I came across this picture that I forgot to include in one of the blogs. It is such a cute picture that I thought I would just put it in on its own. The twins really love corn on the cob and it was so much fun watching them eat it with their Grandpa. All three really enjoyed it as you can tell.

Well this past weekend we were off to another adventure. We decided to go to Bear Lake to go sailing. I have never done this before so I was a little nervous about the whole thing. We thought it would be fun to give Chris the opportunity as well. It was pretty fun, but 4-wheeler is still my favorite activity.

I had the opportunity to steer the sail boat as we went flying over the water. I would dare say I did a great job. Everyone looks very relaxed and all so trusting.

Well, I guess my steering of the boat didn't go as well as I would have hoped. Looks like I lost two passengers. Good thing they could swim. We sure had a lot of fun thanks to Uncle Mark and his friend Robert for taking us with them.

Girls Camp Week

I can't believe the boys are already two years old. This past weekend we went up to Mary Elizabeth's and Spencer's home to celebrate their birthdays. They really enjoyed their cakes this year. I remember last year, Logan would not touch his cake for the longest time and when he finally did it was to lick the frosting off his finger. Not this year, they really enjoyed them.

On Friday, July 23, 2010, Daryl and I went to Park City to explore the Outlet Stores. We try to do this no more than once a year. Daryl was able to find a couple of pairs of pants that he liked and I got one pair, so it was a good afternoon.

The week of July 26 through July 30, Daryl and I had the opportunity to go to Girls Camp. The camp was held at the Heber Valley Girls Camp. It was beautiful and we had a lot of fun and a lot of neat experiences. There were 13 girls that attended from our ward and four leaders, with only one Priesthood from each ward. As you can see from the picture we slept in cabins with electricity, had hot and cold running water, refrigerators, cache cookers, flushing toilets and hot showers. It was an awesome week.

This picture is of all the girls from our ward. Our ward was assigned to provide sack lunches for the entire stake. This picture shows how the girls lined up to help move the line along smoothly. We were very efficient and feed 150 people very quickly.

At Girl's camp they had a challenge course, were the girls had the opportunity to try new things and learn how important it is to work together,and listen to the right influences. One thing that was available was a swing. The ECouple missionaries would strap you in and then you would get pulled up approximately 35 to 40 feet, where you would pull a release strap and swing back and forth. It was a lot of fun. Here is a picture of Daryl comforting me and helping me to walk after I did the swing. (it was a bit scary)
