Getting caught up

Wow, last post was about Christmas, and now here it is June. It would be easy to say that nothing much had happened since the last post, and that was the reason I hadn't written in a while, but that wouldn't be the truth. I just got busy and out of the habit.

Memorial Day weekend was great! We traveled up to Salt Lake to go camping at Strawberry Reservoir with the kids. We hadn't camped at Strawberry in over 25 years since we lost the lease on our fishing cabin. This trip was memorable. The weather was cold, wet and unpredictable, the fishing was slow, but the company was terrific!

As usual Jessy caught the first and best fish.

Aly and Spencer came next:

Jami got baby sitting/dog duty while we were busy fishing.

Will is such a fun little boy! He enjoyed his camping trip, but then again camping runs in our family, and he doesn't have much of a choice.

At the end of the trip we stopped at the cemetary to visit our mom's graves, and then we had a nice family barbeque at Julie and Craig's house.

Jami just can't get enough of Will!

We are so glad that Will is going to grow up with so much extended family so close. If Jami and I can't always be there, at least we know they are surrounded by people who love them.

Jessy is doing really well and we were so glad to have her away from school for the weekend.

It is so much fun spending time with extended family.

Being a grandpa is really great!

Your fans missed you and are glad you're back. Being a grandparent is the coolest thing in the world. You can try to explain it to someone, but they just don't know how great it is until they experience it. Will is growing up so fast sand is so darn cute. Congrats Grandpa and Grandma
