We built the Great Human Pyramids.
We hung out with old high school buddies and the next generation of high school buddies.
We hiked up Y Mountain (a family tradition when visiting Utah) with Amy's old BYU roomates.
Brent got a sore foot on the trip...we think this might of had something to do with it. (It's a very steep hike...apparently too steep for our 2-year-old to handle physically and emotionally alone!)
The girls wore purple nightgowns with Nana.
We had Cousin Camp 2009 (actually 2nd Cousin Camp) with Joel and Karen's kids. They have 2 girls and 3 boys for us to match up with. The pairing up was fun to watch.
We climbed waterfalls,
and canoed Utah Lake.
The highlight of my trip was watching our 3 oldest bravely take the canoe out alone...on their first day of ever holding a paddle.
It's very satisfying watching your children accomplish new things...but it's also lonely to stand and watch them go into unchartered waters without you. I wish I could've been a fly on a life-jacket, listening to their chatter as they navigated through the reeds.
But I had this cute, smiley face to enjoy on shore! Allison loved being in a life-jacket.
We visited Temple Square.
We played for 4 days with Cousin Kylie, which turned into another Cousin Camp!
