The Pursley's swing is so cool, Central ward used to always go and do things at their cabin and the swing was my favorite part. It swings over a small canyon and is just really neat. Melanie, Bryan, and Olivia came up at night and played games with us after dinner, it was so much fun. Olivia got car sick on the way up the mountain and threw up everywhere, so Annie and Olivia had a bath for the night together and loved it! After we played games and pigged out all night they left. To keep busy while Tom was working on the porch, Annie and I cleaned the cabin, we washed windows, vacumed, dusted, scrubbed the kitchen and bathroom down. It was nice and clean when we left. It was a lot of fun also. Grace slept most of the time, she still hasn't woken up to the world much. Bear slept under the porch at night, I was afraid a real Bear would get to him, so we would lock him under the porch. He had a lot of fun exploring while we were there.
Next on my list is our family reunions/ Grace's blessing day! Every year, well for the past couple years, we have went on a family reunion with my family, up to Alpine, and the Daley's started last year, the same time we were with my family so we just hopped from mine to their's after a few days. My family camps, not only camps, but camps in style! It is really nice, my dad turns the back of the horse trailer into a big shower, so we can have a hot shower everyday, he uses a big weed spraying tank (never been used for weeds) and puts a shower head on it, hooks it up to the car battery of his truck and wala you have hot water!
.. our dishwashing spot, unfortunately we still have to do them! My brother flips on his generator so we can still do our hair and have power for things like an ice cream maker for homemade ice cream! Erin and Melanie made a bathroom with a back wall so no one at camp could see you, and my dad has one of those toilet chairs from his medical supply, so you really feel like your sitting on the toilet! Except for burrying everything, and the cold draft when you sit....but it sure is nice not having to squat! We have 2 huge canvas wall tents, that we hook together in the middle. One for sleeping in and one for the kitchen. Then whoever has a tent of their own brings it for their family. We always sleep in the back part of the kitchen one, because we always have a newborn baby, and its warmer for the baby! There was a creek not to far from camp and we would crawdad fish, then a big hill behind us to hike. We play games go on hikes and just visit around the fire. It is my favorite time of the summer.
