Image Overload

Monday, August 11, 2008

Weeeeellll, I finally uploaded all of my pictures from the camera and I'm afraid what we have here is an image overload. I apologize if this is all too much to take in but I must post!
First thing's first! The 24th of July. Yes, I know that was almost a month ago but better late than never. We camped out! It was the first time we've ever done anything so crazy stupid and now we can't stop. We made camp at 2nd and 2nd, with my aunt and other random family members. It was really fun. Didn't get much sleep though. Two or three hours. We were up till two trying to put up a canopy that my grandpa was so kind to offer to us. No instructions and you would think the numbers would go chronologically. No. It was like 1, 4, 7, 2...... All screwed up. Josh finally got it up and we all flopped down on our air mattress. Cushy. I really think it would have been okay had a streetlamp not been directly above us. That messed Nolan up and when he thinks it's morning, there's no quieting him.
A couple of weeks later or so, Josh finally had a weekendd off and I was about to start my little summer job, so we decided to take advantage of our precious time together and go camping. I think it was Little Cottonwood at this really cute camp site. There was this bubbling tiny little safe stream that went by and we saw the skinniest deer ever.
Clara and Josh played swords with their roasting sticks.

We packed up our tent and went to the lake afterwards to meet my parents with their little rowboats. Nolan loved his floaty plane my parents bought.
Nolan's poor eye! I guess I got some sun screen in it. Oops.
Time for the first big family reunion of the month. This was my mom's side of the family. I don't have a picture of the whole group because everyone was at different camp sites and it was hard to get all the people together. It was really fun though. We were there Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It was at Wasatch State Park and it was a little crazy for me because Josh didn't get the time off so he was there during the day, but had to leave at night for work. Lots of driving for him but I'm glad he made the effort!
And finally, Clara and I got our hair cut today! Mine looks pretty much the same and cost twice as much as hers, but she LOVES her new hair. Josh, this is the surprise I was referring to. Isn't it cute? She's so grown up. :( & :)

Cute! Clara's hair is way cute! You need to keep posting pictures because I'm not there anymore to see. :( Did you figure out how to get rid of those bridals? What did you think of them?

Looks like a great camp spot you found up Little Cottonwood canyon. Ah, summer is fun!

Stephanie said...

oh yeah and another thing - her hair reminds me of that little girl in All Dogs Go to Heaven.
