Last Summer Vacation

Hopefully this was our last summer vacation. I'm a little tired of traveling for now. Stephen and I just got back from going on a campout trip with his family and their ward/Stephen's childhood ward. We had a great time, especially Stephen, he loves camping and we haven't gone since the summer of 2008. I was a little freaked out because the lady in charge of the campground said they had about 6-7 bears that roamed around. Luckily we didn't see any, but their was a gunshot someone said they heard one night, with dogs barking, and then the next morning a garbage can close by our camp was turned over. Probably looking for food, whatever it was. I'm hoping that it wasn't a bear. Needless to say I didn't get a whole lot of sleep until we weren't in a tent anymore. We had a lot of fun swimming in the lake and roasting marshmellows. James had a lot of fun, although I almost went crazy trying to keep him close by. He did have lots of fun playing with his cousin Preston and having water gun fights with the boys. James especially liked his Uncle Micheal. Micheal seems to have a knack for animals and small children. After the campout we spent some time in Loomis, Ca with the Taylors before coming back. It was nice seeing everyone.

The hard thing about visiting family though is, after we go see my family we think how nice it would be to live closer to them, and then when we visit Stephen's family we feel the same. So, either we have to get them to move to the same city, hahaha yeah right, or just settle somewhere in the middle. Hello Eastern Oregon, or Western Idaho. Hmmm...I'll still have to think about that one.

That looked like so much fun!!! I wish I was a better camper--I'm just a city girl who loves (loooves) a daily shower. Yet I love sleeping outdoors and breathing fresh air and falling asleep to the sound of wind in the trees. Maybe I'll move to Paris and put a daybed out on my balcony. Yeah. I can do camping like that.

Thanks for all of the pictures. It was so fun to see James having fun with his cousins. We know that they had fun because they got REALLY dirty! We loved having you come stay with us afterwards.
