Eden Trip and camera blues

Well because of Lindsey's soccer tournament in Eden my parents decided to take us on a quick family vacation. We arrived Friday night and spent the night playing games and visiting. We spent Saturday morning watching Lindsey compete (she won the tournament) and then that afternoon we went to pine view reservoir to play at the lake. My dad rented two jet skies, which were so much fun!! I screamed and laughed the entire time. Unfortunately Brandon did not like being outside in the heat, even though he was under the shade. We think he got heat stroke, so we left early. Luckily when we got to our condo he took a great nap and was fine afterwards. Sunday morning we had a big breakfast and celebrated my sister Natalie's 1/2 birthday (June 25th) and my brother Scott's 19th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATALIE AND SCOTT!!! We had such a great time playing and bonding with family. Thanks mom and dad for providing the accommodations, food, activities, and gas!

The down side of the trip is that through the chaos of Brandon being sick I lost my camera. That is why I have no pictures to show you. I am so sad that I don't have my camera especially with more summer vacations and holidays coming up. Fortunately I have a camera phone that I will just have to start using, but it is just not the same. Hopefully it will turn up somewhere soon.

Are we really that old? I appreciate you pointing out your siblings ages, I used to teach them in Primary so now that I am aware they are teenagers, I feel like I am 100 years old! Sounds like you had a great vacation. I always aorry about Stella getting heat stroke, sorry to hear that Brandon had that happen ...

Being in the heat is so hard with babies! Poor little guy, hope he's okay. I don't know how people in Arizona and other scorching places do it (we should ask Camille...) P.S. I can't believe your family celebrates HALF birthdays--do you get presents twice a year?!

Hi Michelle- Hey, I like how you set up your friend's blogs links. How did you do that? I like who it lists them in order of posting.

Anyway, hope to catch up with you guys when we come to Utah. Are you coming to see our play?

We only celebrate Natalie's half birthday because her real birthday is Christmas day, My parents felt she deserved both, I agree.

Hey Michelle,
We were up at Pineview at the same time! We stayed up at Powder Ridge with my family and had a good time. Sounds like you've had some fun family vacations...sorry to hear about your camera! We need to hang out again soon.
