island park for life

summer so far has been pretty busy for cade and i, but just recently we were able to take off to the annual family vacation. this year we headed up to island park. i had heard we had rented a nice cabin in the woods that would be perfect for all 22 of us headed out there. to my surprise, we showed up to find our "cabin" was really just a huge room with 15 beds, a fridge, an oven and a table. yes- all in one giant room. what a great welcome for cade to the family. he was so great to be just fine with grandpa's sleep apnea and aunt lynette's snoring- not to mention the two new babies. despite the FLDS-esque housing, we still had a great time.

after seeing this picture, i feared being the last ones to wake up.

yes cade actually did drive this close to a buffalo. yes i did fear for my life.

the real adventure started when we took the atvs out for the day.

this is cade on speed. seriously, he was a mad man on the four wheelers.

grammy gets pretty rowdy late at night.

while the rest of the world may not like my singing, my little nephew, owen, loves it. he just goes into a trance as i quietly sing cold war kids into his little ears.

our trip finally brought us to beautiful bear lake.
cute little addy. we stayed in logan on sunday for her baby blessing.

we really did have a great time. i loved every second of it...pretty much. cade was such a champ. hopefully with a little coaxing, i'll convince him to go again next year.
