Something new!

It's been a while since I have added anything to our blog. So here it is:

Things are going well for our family. Cam just started his final session of classes. Woohoo! Come November it's "Adios Las Vegas!" We had a lot of fun during Cam's session break.

Cam spoiled me rotten for my birthday. He took me to Lawry's Prime Rib Steakhouse (really awesome by the way ) and The Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. I had never seen Phantom before so I was a little nervous about staying awake through it, but it was so good I definitely didn't fall asleep.

Two days later my favorite holiday, other than my birthday, the Fourth of July. We spent part of the day at the new splash park in St. George with Deja and her boys. Cam went crazy on fireworks. We had so many they actually put a bunch of fireworks in a bucket with gasoline and lit them on fire. They tried to blow up an SUV with a $25 firework. It was great.

Then we went camping on top of Thousand Lake Mountain, with my family. I caught a fish... well... Blake caught a fish and handed me the pole, but hey, I'll take it. Here's a picture from the top of the mountain, overlooking Capitol Reef National Park.

It was so nice to be together as a family. I loved my brothers being together. The kids all had so much fun together.

Ethan set new records for filthy. We camped 3 nights so we were all pretty dirty, but then Ethan got car sick on the way home, and threw up all over himself.
It was bad, but not the end of the gross.
About a hour later he said he needed to pee so we stopped on the side of the road to let him take care of business. Everything was coming out fine until our confused little boy tried to poop standing up; for those of you who haven't tried it... DON'T! It's messy. Needless to say, the rest of the trip was a little smellier. Oh and we can't forget Zack who also exploded on the way home, but all poop aside, it was a great camping trip.
