The Cabaña

We had a great weekend with the Ford family at the Williamson's cabin.  The cabin is great, a perfect space for a family getaway (thank you Williamsons.)  The kids for the most part ran around looking like homeless bums, covered in dirt, bug bites and cuts.  The men/boy folk were always engaged in some sort of competition like, horseshoes, cards or feats of strength. The women were either cooking, cleaning kids or house, or chit-chatting.  No cabin excursion would be complete without a campfire, or trampoline??  (yes they have a trampoline and it was loved by all the kids.)  We rounded off the weekend with a great testimony meeting and a nice clean up crew (Is it crazy that my family loves to clean up, well we do and the cabin looks amazing!!)  As for the pictures of Gus...I was chillaxing with James when he jumped up and said that Gus was buck naked.  We found Gus trying to go potty #2 and he figured it was fine to go outside just like when he goes pee.  FALSE...not okay.  Love my family, they are great!

Labor Day (the day we celebrated Grandma D's birthday)

We are always looking for a reason to do some sort of BBQ/family get together. So we decided to combine mom's birthday and our Labor day celebrations.  We got mom this awesome ice cream maker that fits onto her Kitchen-Aid, it's super cool.  The kids were a wild bunch, they even had a dance party.  The men played poker for hours, until James challenged them to Monopoly which he guaranteed he could win in 1 hour (he won in 1hr 18 min, do not play Monopoly with James unless you want to cry.)  Us women sat and planned a getaway, complete with a test run to ensure comfort for our drive.  My family is great, we miss our brothers though.
