Holley Manwaring Reunion 2008

We had a great time camping this weekend. (Note to self and future campers. The campground in Camp Cumorah in Bone, ID is not meant for trailers. Jarom and his dad had a bugger of a time parking our's.)

Here's little Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer. I wish you could see their little bare feet and rolled up pants. It was so cute!

Jarom's gallant finish in the relay race, with Little G trailing behind. Our team took 3rd place. (Okay, there were only 3 teams competing but who's counting.)

Carter had a riot playing with his 2nd cousins, or 1st cousin once removed, or whatever Jaden and Jackson are to him.

We didn't bring our water clothes, and let me tell you how TEMPTING this muddy water was for the kiddos. (Mom said "No way; stay out!" ) But they still had fun by.....

.... catching teeny tiny frogs. I can't think of many things more fun than catching frogs when you are a kid. This kept our kids entertained for hours.

All that running and playing leaves a guy exhausted. (Check out the dirt caked on Carter. I think there's a little boy under there somewhere.)

Ben made us some delicious dutch oven pizza for dinner.

The weather was perfect, the company fun, and memories were made.

And the whole thing ended with a big wad of gum in the hair.

What a fun trip except for the gum. I love the running in the flippers, what a great guy to do that.

Elena said...

Woops, taken care of. Didn't even notice that. Thanks for calling it to everyone's attention Dayne. And yes, you're still 5.

I don't think you can call it a success without that wad of gum in the hair. Or the dirt caked on your kids. I just love how your children appear to sleep just anywhere! :-)

And I love the new header...

I know you are, but what am I?

Miki said...

HEY!! I can check your website again! Hooray! Of course, I'm checking yours very first!

Elena...Miss Elena no less...I think your camera skills are improving!

;)

Yep, I've noticed anyway...good job. Anyway, the camping looked fun. I'm glad there were trees. There HAS to be trees, and OH, I just wouldn't be able to stay out of that water. Your kids did GREAT. I'm very impressed. I would have gotten in so much trouble.

And dutch oven pizzas...the recipes just never end with you! I keep wondering when I will start seeing some repeats....not yet!

I had so much fun catching frogs as a kid too! I remember getting gum in my hair once too. Yuck!

By the way-THanks for laughing at my blog...

"Fun" and "gum" kind of rhyme.... :)

Looks like a fun time and so glad that your camper (was it named Sasquatch?) is getting some use!

Camille said...

I wish we could have been there! Looks like a lot of fun. Hopefully we'll be there next year, since we're in charge! Hahaha!
