So I need to play a little catch-up here.
Over the 4th of July we spent about 2 weeks out in Utah living it up. It was the 2nd Annual "Camp Riverside" in Logan with some jaunts down to SM2003's for our Utah County fix. The following are some fun pics for your viewing pleasure (and my chance to show how cute my kids are, si claro).
Mitzi (my MIL) is constantly worried when we visit because of the river that runs through their backyard....but of course, her nightmare is my kids' dream! They love spending time down on the shore, throwing rocks, playing in the sand, cooking hot dogs in the firepit, climbing the trees, etc.
The first line of defense is Butch in his lifeguard chair. He's most likely contemplating the next activity he will be doing with the kids... sleeping out in the tent, putting up a rope swing, going for a hike, or whatever else JBird dreams up. I have yet to hear Grandpa say no to anything!
Here are Mitzi & G$$ in "backup lifeguard" position manning the river festivites.
JBird's favorite thing is climbing out on this tree and diving in.
That water is bitterly cold (like, legs-start-aching-after-a-couple-minutes-of-wading-in-it cold) but don't tell JBird that.
TBone liked rearranging all of Butch's river rocks or throwing them in the river. I heart his widdle bum crack which is CONSTANTLY showing due to his having 1% body fat.
Then it's into the hot tub to warm up! (BTW, Butch has to change the water in the hot tub a couple of times every time we visit due to sand, leaves, boogers, and other things the kids bring in there with them....like..... pee).
Proof that even princesses have to TCB (take care of business) from time to time:
OK, I think that's enough for tonight. Next installment will be when we ventured out of Logan and headed up north to Idaho and down south to Provo for some more family fun. Hint: Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana are two completely different people/acts! Who knew??? Double hint: One act is potentially awesome and has all the hit songs and one is quite lame and sings nothing I've ever heard.
