Last weekend we took a little camping trip with our friends. We went up Big Cottonwood Canyon to the Spruces campground. What a fun time we had!

S'Mores! I don't think we were there an hour before Carson was requesting S'Mores.

A muddy face and a marshmallow! Perfect combo!

On Saturday we took a drive up to Silver Lake.

The dads and kids did some fishing.

We also had cousin Ellie with us!

Looking at worms!

Katelyn and her best buds (even you Tia!)

What is camping without a little dirt?!

Some of us hiked up to Donut Falls. I couldn't believe the snow that is still up there!

The only way to keep this kid contained was to give him something to eat! He sure had his share of Cheetos and cookies!

Katelyn, all tuckered out!

Our yummy Catalina Chicken and potatoes!

I love to camp and as much work as it is, it is so worth it! We had such a great time with our friends and made so many memories!

Catching Up!

So, I have been really behind on my blogging! I finally managed to get some pictures uploaded and I can get up to date!

First off, in May, Katelyn had her first Shellie's School of Dance Spring Concert.

Her dance was called "The Tigger Bop." She sure makes a cute Tigger.

Mom and Jace waiting for the show to start.

Next on the update, we had a neighborhood bbq in our circle. It was a fun night and a great turnout of great neighbors!

We had 3 bbqs cooking lots of yummy meat!

The kids also had a great time filling up water balloons.

Then this guy stopped by to get some food! I love it when my favorite officer gets to come home for dinner.

Our kids are almost done with school. Because they are in year round school, it feels like they have been waiting forever to start summer break!

Last week they had an assembly to recognize the students who read all year. Here are the boys with their "Bee-A-Reader" medals and certificates.

Our yearly summer playgroup has also begun. Last week we went to Wheeler farm.

Katelyn brought her cousin Keira with us and they had a great time!

It was such a beautiful day!

And perfect for climbing trees!

Next on the schedule is a camping trip and a visit from some of our family who lives in Vegas. So, hopefully I get some more great pictures to share!
