Lodi 1st Ward Camp Out

We went back to Lodi to attend our our ward's yearly campout. It was so great to see everyone again. We miss all the friends we made in Lodi. The camp out was a lot of fun! The kids played until about 10pm Friday night and were up at about 7am. Saturday morning the kids went fishing in the little pond. Cameron caught 4 or 5 fish. I think Kayleigh finally caught one near the end of our visit. Kayleigh got to take her friend Jade and Chris picked up Matti Roush on his way in. I didn't get very many pictures of Cameron or Kayleigh because I didn't see them very often. They were out visiting with everyone! I don't know where those two social butterflies came from!

She's Done It Again

Well, Ashlan lost another tooth! She was so Excited! Now that she knows first hand that the Tooth Fairy leaves money, she had a list of things she wanted to buy with her tooth Fairy money. Needless to say, the Tooth Fairy isn't as generous with teeth after the first one! The first tooth got $5 and this next one only got $2. She was excited anyways! She now has the cute habit of putting her tongue in the space where her teeth used to be.

I'm hoping to get some pictures posted very shortly of Chris on a giant bouncy house slide. He and our friend Chene were doing somersaults down the slide. It was hilarious! Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so I'm waiting for Andrea to burn them onto a disk for me. We're going camping with them on Friday, so I'll try to get it then!

My cousin Jennifer tagged me. I have never participated in anything like this so here are some 6 random things about me.

1. I am addicted to watching America's Next Top Model. I don't know why, I just Have to watch!

2. I play the piano. Not very well, mind you, but I do play. I took lessons when I was little, so I am a little rusty. I got my Grandpa Barlow's piano from my mom a couple of years ago. I like to go downstairs and play Hymns. I am getting better and better. I don't know that I'll ever be able to play in front of other people though. I get way too nervous and end up playing really badly!

3. I make and mail anniversary cards to all the aunts and uncles and to all my cousins. I also make and mail birthday cards to all the aunts and uncles. It's a huge task and I don't always get them out on time, but I don't think I've missed anyone yet.

4. I don't like to be in front of people. It is way out of my comfort zone to talk to a group of people. This makes me extremely nervous, my face turns bright red, and I get teary eyed!

5. I love to stamp! I can honestly say that I am addicted to it! It doesn't matter what I make, as long as I stamp on it. The kids in my Sunday School class think I'm crazy because I stamp on my visuals and also my handouts!

6. I love to can. I make and can jam and just recently I canned some tomatoes. I don't get do it very often beacuse I don't really have anywhere to store the jars of whatever I am canning!

The Rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let the person know you tagged them on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when you've posted.

Now I'm tagging Leisl, Natalie W., Natalie P., Sara, Aaron, Stacy, and anyone else who wants to play! I'm sure some of you have shared random things before... but you've got to think of more!

Chris' Birthday


Happy Birthday Chris! My wonderful husband turned 37 yesterday! Ashlan helped me make cupcakes, well, she kind of help me frost them. She did more tasting than helping! We didn't do much for his birthday, except the cupcakes! Chris wanted to just sit and watch a football game, so that's what we gave him for his birthday. Chris is an outstanding husband and father and I am so blessed to have him in my life! So again, Happy Birthday Old Man!

We went to Buck's Lake for Labor Day. It was super windy, but the kids had a great time! The Mogler's went with us and we loved having them with us. Here are just a couple of pictures I took yesterday. Cameron was the only one to fall in the lake, so we had a good day!
