Time to Post, I Suppose . . .

Me and 3 of my 5 little brothers.

Kenny being a cutie at Grammie's house.

One of the many windmills we saw in Wyoming.

Well, I guess it is time to post. I have been MIA on this blog for a couple of weeks. But my public needs me!!! Right? :)

We survived the looongest trip we have been on (thus far) and arrived in UT at 1:00 in the morning 2 Saturdays ago. We have been having a lot of fun with family. LOTs of family=LOTs of fun!!! We have been to Cabela's, bowling, the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house, Schafer family reunion, Fourth of July parade and other festivities, hiked Bridal Veil falls, went to Sliding Rock and have been all over UT visiting family from Salt Lake City to Mount Pleasant! Oh, and this last Friday all us ladies went on a Girls Day Out. Where did we go on our fun day? D.I. !!! He he he! We got some great stuff, and for cheap, so I am very happy with my purchases. :)

Sure, it has been a little crazy and hectic. Sure, we have been out of a routine for 2 weeks. But we are settling in better. And is it just sooo nice to be in UT and among so many people who love us once again.

Unfortunately Kenny has been sick for about 4 days (including today). He has had diarhea and vomiting sooo much that I was worried that he would get dehydrated. But then we figured out that he couldn't hold down my milk or dairy products. We suspect, from what information we could gather, that he may have developed a minor and temporary lactose intolerance. We think his digestive problems started off as a stomach bug. He seems to be doing better. We are limiting his dairy intake and mine as well. Hopefully he is back to himself completely very soon!

Anyway, here are a few pictures. Enjoy!
Celeste, Chase, Puppet-Man, Lexi, Carl and Kenny. Chase made the
puppet for Lexi. What a nice uncle!
Bridal Veil Falls. Carl, my brothers and some Hopkin kids are at the bottom of the
Falls (in the middle of the picture). Look closely and you can see.
Maggie sniffing Kenny's cute little bootie!
The Fourth of July hot air balloons.

Such B-E-A-Utiful pictures!! Love them... and the new look on your blog. So, you are still in Utah? Sounds (and looks) like you're having a wonderful time!
By the way, where did you see all the hot air balloons? Was that part of some 4th of July celebration? All of your pictures just look so perfectly summery and fun. :)
