How many times have I mentioned that I am not a camper?
Hmm many times.
So, when we watched the Family reunion
last yr-->click here
the boys wanted to go to the Family reunion '09.
And Jake especially
wanted to celebrate his Birthday with his cousins.
And we did!
2 weeks ago we went to
UT for Paul's family reunion.
And we had a blast!!!

We went to
Monte Cristo campground
in UT

We love driving to UT
the beautiful
red rocks, mountains
Yeah of course it could be very tiring
we just LOVETH!

We went to visit our friends
Nana and her girls
sans Jeff

We also visited Curtis and Jen and kids.

My SIL's lovely shower tent!

The boys woke up early
and went fishing.

They were so bummed
and did not catch any fish
however Jake said

At night we
roasted marshmallows
had pies
dutch oven cook off

Joe showed the boys
how to do archery

Jake tried it
And J.T too

We..I meant they played scrabble :))

ON our last night it rained
good thing my FIL is always prepared (like a real Boy Scout)
he placed tarps all over the tables
and brought
extras for the tents.

My niece Toni
blessed her baby boy Landon
Me-JT-Erica-Amber with Landon

hosted a
Family feud game for the nieces and nephews
She had some random questions
Foods that you eat with your hands...
Apples, etc. :))
at the same time
questions about Gma.
What was GMA's favorite snack?

I tried Water Skiing

Sad to say I did not or
I could not get up.
After the 3rd attempt
and from drinking/snorting
lake water
I was pooped!

From a P.T point of view:
Poor Core Strength
Poor Quad Strength
Poor Ant. and Post pelvic tilt
Poor balance
Poor coordination
Poor motor planning

From my Co-worker's point of view....
It's the boat driver's fault.....Hmmmmm :)))
I like that!

And here's the boat owner/driver
my BIL Troy

Nephew Andy

"Glitter Nails"
I enjoyed "girly stuff"
with my nieces and their daughters
I brought my nailpolish stuff
and we had fun

Dutch oven cook off Yum!!

Nephew Jeremy - Boston - Whitney

Nephews Anthony and ED

BIL Chris and Kayla

and we loved it!!!!

We finished our trip
