The End of Summer

The weekend of September 17-19th was the official end of summer. :( Our last camping trip. I hate seeing our weekends away come to an end. I enjoy every second of the escape to the mountains of Blacksmith Fork. This particular weekend was a little more memorable than most because for starters I pulled the trailer up with the pickup ALL by myself! Clay was working and I could stay home and be miserable or buck up and do it myself. So, of course I chose the latter of the two. Hooked it up and here we are!!! I was a nervous wreck, but it really wasn't that bad. My dad helped back it into our spot and we were set! Proud of myself, heck yes I am! And I think I'm entitled. ;)

Clay didn't end up arriving until the wee hours of the morning on Saturday because his little grand daughter, Lilly was born at 12:03 am. I'm glad he was able to be there with Wes and Ashley, I will post more about this...

The leaves are just starting to change colors, love this view of our campground!!
We snipped green beans and mom bottled them while Clay and I ran to the hospital so I could meet the little Lilly Bean.

We had dutch oven bbq chicken, vegetables and apple cobbler! DEEEELISH!!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

So sad that the summer is over and Fall is in the air. I am so grateful for the time that we get to spend together as a family and make memories. There is no place I'd rather be.

My Hair Girls

Ever since school started, Hadley comes to my house in the mornings three days a week so I can fix her hair cute for preschool. Breck has to be to work at 6:30am, which makes a very early morning for Hadley. Usually, Hadley always wants her hair fixed "like Court" so most mornings they sport identical hairdo's. What some cute girls?!?!

More Camping...

Just some random pictures of one of our camping trips this last summer.
Conner, Presley, Courtney and Tallen
We had corn on the cob for dinner and decided this was a redneck corn cob. :)

Clay and his buddy Jensyn (aka: Bert)

Jensyn thought he was pretty cool riding Graysen's bike.

Clay and Pepper in the trailer....grrrrr!!! No dogs in my trailer!!
The girls making bracelets...

One injury this particular weekend. The kids were playing on the ramp of Grandpa's enclosed trailer and Hadley stepped on a HUGE sliver and had to go to Instacare to have it cut out. Ouchie!!!

Hadley's sliver
The kids will spend hours playing in the gravel! Good thing they have shovels and buckets.
Lots of 4 wheeler rides given by Conner. What a stud?
Kenzlie and Graysen, ahhh, look they're holding hands. So sweet!

Kohler snacking on a Cheeto.

Fishing with sticks... hummmmm?? Conner said they were fishing for halibut, good luck bud!

Another great weekend with family and friends! So glad the Voth's and Nielsen's were able to join us!!! I'm already wishing it was summer again...
