Most of mi familia and some friends went camping over the Labor Day weekend to Bear Canyon. My brother Ralphy and his wife went up on Wednesday to save a spot for all 32 of us, but I might be missing someone – but that doesn’t really matter. Some arrived Thursday and most of us on Friday. It was an insane drive to get there. What would have normally taken us 2 1/2 hours took us 4 hours to get there because the traffic was insane. Even though it’s the same spot every year, it was way difficult to find in the dark. Besides that, we had an amazing time. We stayed up late Friday just sitting around the camp fire talking, roasting marshmallows and star gazing and throughout the day, some of the kids had fun on Jessica’s power wheels.
During our camping trip, my sister Sylvia, her daughter Amanda, Jessica & I had the opportunity to drive to Heber to visit my sister Sarai and check out her home that she just had built and then drive up to Taylor for a birthday party. At the birthday party they were able to dress up like princess and get their hair and make up done. Of course both of our daughters are little tom boys that instead of getting all dressed up decided to chase butterflies, tried to catch frogs, try run around and play with the horses. They did however decide to go on a horse and carriage ride.
The kids (and me) had fun jumping of a tree stump while someone snapped a picture of us in the air. Of course I had a difficult time doing it – but none the less, I did it!
