and then you think to yourself...

last weekend jeff got his hands on this little dingy:
he thought it would be fun to go camping here:

blue ridge reservoir.

the fishing was suppose to be good.

you have to boat to the camping spot. sweet.

we (us, gardiners, fryers) were so excited for the adventure.

that is until the night came.

cold set in and so did our rude camping neighbor's.

all night cussing and then loudly making-up.

oh, and who can forget the fog horn they hooted at midnight.

at this point you think to yourself,

"now why did camping sound like a good idea?".

needless to say we all felt like this in the morning:

after breakfast clean-up

the rain started and we all had to find something to do in our tents.

like put a diaper on the bunny over and over

(for about 1 hr. non-stop).(ocd much?)



we wanted to wait out the rain but our kiddos were getting really cold
and our camping neighbors weren't leaving.
we called it.
we were lucky enough to save the trip by going to my
favorite arizona spot.

conference seemed extra sweet watching it at the cabin.
the next best thing to watching it live.
my fav: pres monson sunday morning
"Let us relish life as we live it,
find joy in the journey,
and share our love with friends and family."

Hey - why are your pics so tiny? I sent huge ones over. Do you need me to resend them?

Agh, I totally forgot about the freaking air horn. I hate them. Yep, hate!

OCD, no. Toddler, yes! This morning Sam "hid" in our bed under the covers and I sang all kinds of "Where is Sam" songs and then "found" him only like 5 times but he would have done it for an hour if I would have! He kept saying, "I want to do it adin." (um, g's are d's in our house.)Oh, the joy of repetition when you are nearly 2or 2.75!!!

I like Jill's uggs - especially the fact that you can wear them on either foot. I'm glad you guys got to de-frost at the cabin but I'm sorry we missed all the adventures!
