Father's Day

This year for Father's Day we joined my parents and siblings on a relaxing Father's Day campout! We went up Southfork campground in the the Ogden Valley and enjoyed the beautiful weather, the hikes, campfires, books (mostly The Host), the river and each other.

Daddy and Grandpa

Ashby and Grandma enjoyed playing together!We all started off together on our little hikes...

...but before too long, Ryan'd be off on his own finding the paths to the top.

Yes, we are all pretty much Stephenie Meyer fans! My good friend Laurel let me borrow it and I ended up reading it out loud like it was story time at the library! For those of you who havn't read it, it was good. It had it's intense, sad and funny moments. She did an excellent job reminding us that there must be opposites in all things for us to appreciate the good. I recommend it to you.

Growth of Ashby

A good friend of mine, Sam, just started a blog (Yippee!). And she showed pics of her husband, Rick, with their kids from every year. Thanks for the idea, hope you don't mind sharing. Here are some from Ryan's first 3:

2006: First Father's Day, just 9 days old!

2007: Our little one year old, again in the mountains

2008: Camping for fun!
