A few highlights

We had a fabulous time at our family reunion in Pine Valley, Utah. The weather was perfect and the company even better. I can't believe how well all the cousins got along. It was so wonderful to see family from all over. The adults had scavenger and treasure hunts and lots of activities for the kids. They loved it. My favorite part were the midnight hikes a few of us took every night--even if my mom and cousins kept trying to scare me with ghost stories--yes I'm a big wimp--LOL!

The only sad part is that Mike couldn't come :( The boys and I had a blast though. We stayed at a cabin, but also rented a campsite and let the kids go play there. They loved the creek and the tree swing. We all loved the dutch oven cooking and s'mores we had one night.

One of the days, I took Austin and Brendan on a photo hike. These are some of the pictures they took.

Anyway, we're glad to have survived the long drive home yesterday and are ready for a rest. Still haggling with the builder over a house--hopefully we'll get it soon :)

I hope you find a house soon, that must be so frustrating when these buyer won't budge on the price! Especially with the market and the fact that most sellers are still making a lot on the house even if they undersell! Wishing you luck with that! I'm glad you guys had a great time at Pine Valley!! We are actually just about an hour away from there in St. George :D We haven't been up there in a while. My hubby's brother usually likes to take us up there to go fishing every once in a while :D
