Greys River!

We survived. And that word describes our week of camping perfectly. We are hoping this will be the hardest year for us and, really, it couldn't get harder. I think Trent will be making an appt next week to make sure we won't have another camping experience with a baby!
But despite being the hardest year it really was fun. Going camping with my family is the way to do camping. My parents cook the best meals, have the best set up, and lets face it, four extra hands is always nice. Our trip consisted of hiking, canoeing, swimming, throwing rocks, getting dirty, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, finding snakes, fighting, getting dirty, eating, "sleeping," finding bullet shells, getting dirty, driving in the back of the truck, playing, walking to the creek, getting dirty, and just having a fun and tiring camping experience.
I did go a little picture crazy, but once again my friends, you don't have to look.






Thanks Mom, Dad, Cade, and Emily (the packages she sent for the kids each day) for helping us survive camping. We couldn't have done it without you! And we missed Luke, Kim, Emily, Avery, Jake, Becky, James, and Jackson. It is never the same experience without everyone there.

Wow ~ I am sure that was an adventure! Did you get a new camera? All of your photos look REALLY good and clear. Let me know if you did (and what kind). I need a new camera. I'm glad you all had fun!

Looks like a great time...and lots of work! I love all your pictures especially the ones with your girls and Trent. Why are those always such cute pictures....Dads are just special to little girls!! Boys and snakes too cute!

We just got back from camping, but we didn't get to do the whole week thing! You are brave to go with all of your babies, but it can only get easier, right? ;)

I couldn't believe you went with all of your kiddies! You never cease to amaze me! I'm glad you had fun, but I'm even more glad your back. I look more popular with your comments. I loved all of your pictures. I miss your kids so much. I'm dying to see them. I have no idea when I will next. Probably not until you guys come down in October. :( Man that feels like awhile away. I'm excited for girl's weekend. I went and stocked up on some scrapbook stuff today. Now I just need to order my pictures and I'll be all set to go!

PS. I never thought I would see your kids so dirty! A little dirt looks good on them!

Wow, that was quite the slide show. I think it took about 20 minutes to watch. What am I doing awake at midnight looking at blogs? I love the pic of Morgan and Paige holding hands the best. Way cute. I'm telling you though. Next time you go take our trailer.

Looks like tons of fun. I can't believe you took everyone. You guys are the 8th Wonder of the World. Seriously. I always think of doing all the things you guys do with just Annie and I get tired, let alone thinking of have 4 more! Wow!!!

PS - Never apologize for going pic crazy. Pics are my favorite thing to look at on posts. Love them! You have the cutest family (and I'm not just saying that).

I think that's great that you go camping every year!! Cute pictures of everyone.

Luke & Kimmy said...

Thanks for sharing all the pictures. Luke and I were really sad that whole week and we kept saying how we should be up there. I guess there is always Next. It's going to be the best year yet...we hope.

Looks like you had a fun time! I think camping with babies is especially hard--I look forward to when my youngest is older for those times.
