From Thursday to Saturday morning we went camping. We went to Pioneer campground close to Hyrum in Cache valley. Johnny, Scott, Amy, Daren and I went. Everyone else had other commitments and could not break away. We had a lot of fun. Scott was a master at roasting marshmellows and perfected a chocolate-filled giant marshmellow. Amy made perfect roasted hot dogs (pig-in-blanket kind). Johnny went fishing a couple of times and caught a fish which he let go. We did a little hiking (Scott and Amy hiked up the mountain), Dad and Amy went for a long walk-run and we spent time at Porcupine Resevoir. Johnny, Scott and Amy went on a raft to the other side and did some cliff-jumping. Dad kept the trailer working great and I tried to keep us well-fed. We plan to go again this summer and hope everyone can come that time.

It is time to haul hay again. Thank goodness for Dave, Christy and the girls! They were a big help. Jackie (Sarahs friend) helped today. And of course Amy! We are so glad that there is only one field to harvest instead of three with one of them being huge. It will make the summer a little less overwhelming.

Father's Day

Yesterday we celebrated Fathers Day. We enjoyed a dinner together and after different kinds of pies. The boys played tape ball. I am including some pictures. Notice the intensity on their faces. We missed Nathan, Claire, Norah and Ryan.

Last Thursday Amy graduated from high school. I no longer have any children in public schools. That means no more back-to-school nights, parent-teacher-conferences, lunch money, and everything else that goes along with that. I have mixed feelings. I am grateful that all of my children have graduated from high school and have done as well as they have but I am pretty sad that everyone is growing up and leaving me.

We had a great day with Amy. Here are a few pictures. She went to the senior bash which lasted all night. Congratulations Amy!
