Camping in the Uintas

This weekend we went camping up in the Uintas with some of Christy's cousins, my Mom and Dad, and my good friend Kyley. Our kids had a blast playing with all their cousins that are their same age. We went fishing to butterfly lake and mirror lake on friday. On Saturday we rode the four-wheelers up to Lily Lake and on all kinds of fun trails. Sunday we fished at Mirror Lake. It was one of the funnest, most relaxing camping trips we have ever been on.

Hike to Double-Top

A few weeks ago I went with my scouts to scout camp at Aspen Ridge in Idaho. One morning we woke up at 4:30 am and hiked to the top of this mountain called Double-Top. The hike was a tough one, but well worth it. The views from up top were incredible. We made it up just in time to watch the sun rise. It was awesome. Here are just a few of the pictures I took.

Lake Powell 2009

We had a blast this year at Lake Powell. I threw Calee off the back of the house boat and she only cried for a second. She loved the water and would swim every chance we would let her. Carter caught tons of fish. Carter and Cambree both were crazy tube riders this year. I couldn't believe how brave they are getting. Carter tried water skiing for the first time and did awesome. Luke, Kyle, and I went wakeboarding every morning after breakfast and had a blast. The water was warm, smooth, and we all got a little bit better at jumping the wake. We were parked at an exciting beach this year. We had a rattlesnake about 50 yards from the houseboat, and we had coyotes that would come down to the water to drink at night. Carter kept leaving fish up on the beach and they would come down and eat them at night. He thought that was pretty cool. I was proud of our kids this year. They were so good and so brave, and Calee even slept throught the night every night. We had fun. It went by way too fast, but it is good to be back home in 80 degree weather instead of 104 degree weather.
