We also had a great time with Jason and Jen and their kids, and Kyle and Amy and their kids. Neil and Sherrie came over to visit as well. We thought it would be fun to take a grandkids shot, since all nine were there. As the pictures show, it was not really all that fun. I'm not sure why nine kids under ten couldn't just sit still and act cute at the same time!!
The girls have a tradition at Carla's house. Every time we are there they paint the playhouse. And every time they paint the playhouse, the "washable" paints always completely ruin some article of clothing. It's inevitable. I know this, and yet I cannot say no. Who can say no to Carla anyway? This was the first year that Carly was an active participant.
After returning home to Utah, we spent two days doing laundry and packing up to go to Flaming Gorge with the Henderson side. We spent a long weekend boating, skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing. Ashlyn and Megan both tried waterskiing for the first time, and Ashlyn actually got up for a few seconds. The lake was beautiful, and we would love to go back next year.
