I don’t know why I am in such a not blogging rut, I guess it is finishing up summer and getting back into the school routine-more on that later. Here is the rest of our cabin trip.
Sunday we went to church, it was a very full sacrament meeting! We didn’t go to the whole block, luckily they had sacrament meeting at the end of the block so we were all able to get ready with just 2 bathrooms, quite the feat for 41 people.
Cathy and I took some family pictures for the Burch’s after church-I always enjoy taking pictures of families. It always makes me want to improve my skills and upgrade my camera though!
The rest of the day was spent napping
Matthew is an Angry birds expert now!
Editing pictures and reading
We also did a BIG family picture with all 41 of us. As the grandkids get older and go on missions is it going to be a while till we are ALL together again. So we set up a tripod and got everyone together. Jake was in charge of taking pictures so I got the pictures from him and I haven't done any editing yet on them.
Here’s all the grandkids, 26 of them. Averi was not happy. I couldn’t find Thomas's socks and didn’t think it would matter…I was wrong. Jared is the oldest at 21 and Averi is the youngest, she was 19 months.
the silly picture is always my favorite
Here’s the whole family. Kaylee got in a snit so isn’t smiling in any of the pictures.
The kissing picture..
We broke a fence doing this location
I liked this location the best, with the Provo river in the background. Most of the kids were done at this point.
Taking picture of 41 people isn’t easy. I think someone was going to do some Photoshop and swap some heads, I’ll have to get some copies of those.
We started the 4th with a flag ceremony
We played lots of games-the dice game & Nertz (I used to be really good and fast, I am not so good and slow at Nertz now!)
Gabe, Trish & Gabby & the Torgerson’s came up. It was fun to spend the 4th with some of my family too.
Gabe looking creepy in the background
Jim & Mike-not really fair that Mike still has a full head of hair!
Jim and Gabe wanted to get in the Provo river. It was FREEZING and really high and had a very strong current. Luckily they made it out ok!
Our little crazy Averi had to dip her feet in the river too. She said, “Burr”.
We did lots of sparklers and fireworks that night and had more game playing. It was a fun 4th of July.
Jim with his parents, do you think he looks like his dad?
It really was a great cabin trip. Our kids had so much fun and loved being with all their Anderson cousins. They keep asking when we can go back. We left the next morning and drove to Denver and stayed the night there. The drive home the next day took FOREVER! Kaylee had a bug and threw up a couple of times and we were all just tired and cranky and ready to get home!
