So this last weekend we jumped in the car (truck) and went camping with our really good friends the Wrights. Unfortunately, we decided a little late to go camping and so the only place we could find a spot was not very high in the mountains and so it was very hot and desert like. We still had a good time though. There was a very nice lake there and so the second day we were there we rented a house boat and went out on the lake. We had a good time relaxing and hanging out. Other than an incident regarding a flip flop and a life vest we had a great time on the water. That night once we got back to camp our friends ended up leaving because their kids weren't feeling so well. Their baby hadn't slept hardly at all and wasn't eating so they had to head home. We spent that night there camping and the next day we went back to the lake to do some fishing. We had fun, I spent most of the time untangling the fishing line that Craig and the girls got tangled but we still had fun. We headed home that afternoon and it felt so good to take a nice shower without wearing flip flops and worrying about dropping something on the floor.

So we love summer time partly because we get to go to the Drive In Movies on weekday nights. This week we went to see Wall-E and Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian. Tyler had had a rough day and by the time we got to the movies he was already asleep with his blanket. Sari had spent the night at Grandma's so Craig, Ashlie, & I ate pizza and popcorn and relaxed. Tyler slept through half of Wall-E then woke up. I figured he would go back to sleep after Wall-E but he didn't. He loves the other Chronicles of Narnia movie so he actually stayed awake through the whole thing. In fact, Ashlie, Tyler, and I all stayed awake through the end. Craig is the one who fell asleep in the back of the van snoring. Lol!! Of course he had worked that day so he had been up since 5 am. It was about 2 am when we got home and got the kids to bed. Kind of a late night but we managed:)
When my little niece Brooklyn was born Tyler nicknamed her Boo Boo. So Boo Boo just had her first birthday on 7/13. Jennifer did it out at the Adventure Park which has a pizza buffet, arcades, bumper (squirting) boats, miniature golf, race cars etc. So Jen, Ashlie, & Sari rode the bumper boats. Boo Boo couldn't figure out why she didn't get to ride since it was her birthday party!!!

We had a great time on our little vacation. The kids got to see most of their cousins and had a good time with them. We started out in Idaho and hung out there for almost a week. We played at Grandma and Grandpa's, saw Wall-E, went to the zoo, watched the fireworks, and relaxed. After we left Grandma & Grandpa's we headed to Utah to see some friends from college. Wow, time flies. We had a great time. Thanks Chris & Lori!!! After that we headed to Craig's sisters house and spent a couple of days there. We all traveled together and went to Bryce Canyon and to the St. George Temple. We had so much fun we didn't want to come home. Especially when the thermometer read 113 on our way home. We had a really fun time. Here are some pictures that show a few of the fun things we did.
