Boating at Pineview

We had such a fun day boating at Pineview with my family! Amy and Olivia flew up from California to spend the week with us, Emily and Brooklyn were both home, Jacob was staying with my family for the summer to work, and Katie drove up from Provo to spend the day with us! It was so much fun having everyone there. Thank you Mom and Dad for the great day! We went tubing, wakeboarding, and water skiing; it was a great day (minus a couple injuries-a broken finger for Calvin and a rope burn for my dad, luckily it wasn't worse-they both stuck it out though and had a good day!).

Our setup back on the beach-we took turns taking care of Coulton and Olivia and Camden part of the time.

Woo! That is one good-looking guy driving the boat!

Jacob and Brooklyn

We had such a fun day! The next day, we spent the day swimming and playing at Cherry Hill for my birthday. It was a lot of fun too! Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures. Camden was such a big boy and went down the tube slide and the mat slide! We also had a lot of fun playing miniature golf. Thanks for the fun time everyone!

Coulton's Blessing Day-Aug 7, 2011

We were really happy to be able to bless Coulton in Fallon on Sunday, August 7th, as we were in the process of traveling across the country-West coast to East coast. It was so nice to see our families and have them there for Coulton's special day, Calvin gave him a wonderful blessing. Thank you to the Winders for hosting and to the Eggetts for making the drive from Utah.

Proud Grandparents:

Unfortunately, we are missing one proud grandfather here-he had to hurry out of the church after the blessing to save us all from a possible flood! Calvin's dad bravely drove to the bottom of a dam to check out a leak that could have become much more serious. Luckily he got it taken care of and we didn't learn of the danger until he returned.

My dear sister Brooklyn-we couldn't have done it without her help in California!

And my dear sister Emily-such a wonderful Aunt!

I wish I had taken a few more pictures of everyone else there and a close-up of Coulton, but that's how it goes when you're taking care of a newborn! We are so grateful to have Coulton as a part of our family!

Fathers & Sons Camping Trip

I'm doing some catch-up on my blogging! We couldn't make it to the fathers & sons outing in our ward so Calvin wanted to take Camden on a camping trip over the summer. The weekend after Coulton was born, Calvin and Camden took a trip with Calvin's dad and brother Mckay while I got a little extra sleep! The boys all had so much fun. Calvin and Camden stopped and got new fishing poles and some gear. They fished in a river near their campsite and caught 2 trout! Here are the boys with their catch.

Grandpa taught the boys about cleaning the fish.

Chef Calvin's gourmet trout.

It was so good, even Mckay and Camden liked it!

It was a short trip, but they had a good time! Camden enjoyed playing with his football...

Drinking orange soda...

Climbing and playing outside...

And even seeing some wildlife right in their camp!

We can't wait until next year when we can plan a longer camping trip and Coulton and I can join the fun! Camden loved it!
