We decided to go camping the weekend before school started and amazingly, pretty much the whole family was able to come for either all or part of the trip. It was beautiful, peaceful and so much fun to play cards, read and just spend time together. It was a great weekend and a nice way to end the summer, so to speak.
So glad everyone was able to come! (I have converted to the "new" publishing format and now can't figure out how to move my photo's around or add captions - It will let me add a caption on some but not all photo's, so bear with me. When I try to move a picture or delete one it bumps it to the bottom. Grrrr! It's ticking me off! This post looks all messy and I'm getting too frustrated to mess with it! If anyone has some pointers let me know!!)
First and foremost I must confess that I have been the most lousy picture taker this summer! I have carried my camera with me every where I go and I take next to nothing. I am in a slump and just can't get into blogging these days. Thought I would post the few pictures I have taken and some that Courtney has. I think it corresponds with the fact that I don't want to be in any of the pictures because I'm a fat butt again and we haven't done hardly anything this summer!! I really need to find my energy...I know if I would exercise I would have more energy but I'm too tired to exercise!! Whine, complain, blah! Okay enough of that nonsense!!

Notice the giant bandage on my elbow! I was
the Stake Camp Cook this year and burned myself
a good one on the oven door.

I have lived my whole life in Salem, Utah (with an exception of a couple of years in Spanish Fork plus, I don't really count the 9 months I lived at BYU in 1986) I love this beautiful community and my dear friends and family that live so near. It is a wonderful place to rear our children! I have been married to Tim for 23 years and we have 3 great kids. Courtney 16, Alec 11, and Matthew 6.
