Vacation Phase One : Completed

This summer we split up our vacation time. It was not really by choice, but we had commitments to tend to and decided to take one week away then return home and after regrouping, leave again. We could not be far from home at first, so for phase one we decided to head up to our cabin in Utah. It was soooo nice to be out of the heat (big one for me), away from the hustle and bustle of daily life (telephones, email, etc....) and just relax! We did not spend any time in Utah last summer so it had been a while since we had been there as a family and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We got to spend a little time with my Mom, my brother and my niece. We all live in the same city, but got more time together hundreds of miles from home! Some of the highlights of our trip:

Day One: Daddy caught a horny toad, so we kept him for a couple of days
Sammie became attached to Mr. Horny Toad and even liked him on her head
We had a couple of days of WONDERFUL rain, which meant WONDERFUL mud!
"Grandma D" took the girls out for a ride - all three of them!!
We filled the feeder on our back porch hoping for guests....welcome!
The bird feeder did not have the same draw. Don't know why-can't beat the view!!
Gearing up for a water gun fight!!

Freeze Daddy!!

Up, up and away!
