The Summer So Far...

At this very moment I am trying to upload one picture. My computer is so slow that I am beginning to give up on it. Besides a slow computer it has been a fun summer. If the picture I'm uploading appears, you will see me and Daniel after a four wheeler ride after Daniel's class reunion. It was fun to go out with some of Daniel's old classmates and their wives. I figured it was about time for a picture of me and Daniel on the Blog.

We've been camping a few times. The kids always love this. I loved it when I was a kid too, but that's because mom and dad did all the work. I have to admit though, I don't have to entertain them and I don't have to worry if they get dirty and I do like that. The first time we went it was a little cold still. Gavin and I froze and Gwen and Daniel were totally fine. Gwen also learned to ride her bike without training wheels on this trip. It's a new-found freedom for her. Our second trip was with the Allens. It was a lot of fun and we ended the trip with a day at Bear Lake. Our third trip was to McCoy Creek on the Wyoming border right next to Palisades with the Ashleys. We found a perfect spot and the bathrooms were impecible (that's important for us ladies). Daniel spent most of his time fly fishing. It was a pretty successful trip.
On the fourth we did the usual. Parade, BBQ, Fireworks. It was our first family gathering at our house. I think it went pretty well.
Last week was the Caribou County Fair. We spent our time at the Demolition Derby. Our favorite. Then we did the parade and some rides with the kids. If I ever get my computer to get it's stuff together I will post a picture of Gwen and her cousin on a roller coaster. It's pretty cute. We ran into a lot of people that we know including some from Moscow: Williams and Stoddards. Course, half the people we knew in Moscow were people from Grace. Crazy how that works.
