Family day at the lake! :D

Saturday we had our annual family reunion at Canyon Lake, AZ. It was an awesome day and we had so much fun tubing down the lake! After about an hour of being out on the lake we went back to let the rest of the family have a turn at it. But right after they left we had a HUMONGOUS storm go through without warning!! I grabbed all my kids and hanged on to them as the wind and rain pounded on us. All we could do was ride it out!! They were scared and crying, but they were with Jace and I, and I was more worried for the rest of the family on the boat!! When the storm passed we had nothing left on the tables which we had set up with food, drinks and treats, we had lost a raft and other things to the lake, and everything else was buried in the sand! Crazy but FUN!!! I LOVE big storms!!! :D

Chore Chart

Last Saturday was our ward's Super Saturday and I ventured out of my non-crafty comfort zone to make this really cute chore chart. I also made a bunch of magnets to go along. We've been at it for a week, and IT WORKS!!! :) So excited to get the chores done while the kids have so much fun checking their chores everyday. It's almost a game!!

Summer 2008

Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)

Scout Camp 2008

Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.

Wood Badge!

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
