Before we headed off to the Zoo, I made 2 batches.... 55 sweetrolls for a Visiting Teaching Activity. I think they turned out pretty well. They tasted YUMMY!

BaTeS rEuNiOn

This last weekend we went camping for Almas family Reunion. It was such a blast! I love being able to see Almas family and get to spend a few days relaxing by a fire and chatting and of course, eating yummy food! I did suffered from Allergies, which is never fun...but other than that it was a fun time by all! We look forward to this every year.

Here is the gang going for a little hike

Awesome rocks!

She found her own little chair!

Kaitlyn and Matthew!

Alma and me

Sitting up high in the rocks, I love how they are all looking at her

On the drive back....

Few mins later she was fast asleep!

She got a little hot so Aunt Charity made a little "pool" for her. It was awesome!

She did empty out the whole cooler with that cup....

Hanging out with the cousins!

Playing in the sand pit

And here are a few crazy faces by Kate!

Few more pictures of camping

So my friend Stephanie takes AwEsOmE pictures and she was sweet enough to share them with me so here are a few more pictures of us camping this last weekend!

You can see how high up we were in the mountains... we were up in the clouds! It was such a cool fog!

Kaitlyn found a mud puddle. And loved it!

We were telling her to pose. She was so cute posing for us!

Stephanie and Kaitlyn

A better picture of the girls!

Camping in the Rain, Anyone?

This last weekend we went camping with some couples from our ward. It has been great weather for the last couple weeks and then it rained all weekend. We didn't care, we went anyway.
The picture below is kind of fuzzy but you can get an idea of how cloudy and foggy it was while we were camping. It was awesome to look at! Really gave it a cool effect.

Just a little wet

Great friends

She loved sitting on this rock. Sometimes she would go down it like a slide... over and over again.

Alma warming up his feet by the fire!

The girls!

3 out of the 4 kids!

Kaitlyn and Jace

It was a great weekend! Loads of fun and Laughs, smores and starbursts, Yummy tin foil dinners and pancakes and bacon breakfasts!

Alma also had his 26th birthday this week! We love him and are so happy to have him in our life! Love you Alma!

Dishes, Fondue, Petting Zoo, Fight Night

I had to do a lot of dishes one day so I had Kaitlyn help me out. She had so much fun playing in the water, I just let her keep playing while I cleaned the rest of the house... It seemed like a great babysitter to me so I could get a lot done.

Getting her toes wet.

After she was eating lunch and ZoNkEd out... What is it with playing in water that makes you so tired?

That night we made Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries and Bananas!
(we both are messy eaters, Alma was laughin' at us)

Then we went to the petting zoo with my sister Kacey and her boys.
They had this little Jail.

Random picture of out Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant! I has even gotten longer and has a few tomatos showing!!!

Jail time

Seeing the horseys

Riding the Ponies!!!
She did so well!

Kacey and Zach


Got to ride the pony again!

A friend of mine from my ward invited me to a fight night that her boss was fighting in. It was a great night with loads of fun! Too bad her boss (who was fighting in the ring) got knocked out for a few mins. He was out cold after a couple hits. It was a great night though! Thanks Alex!
