Problem Solved

We have a new cousin!

Baby Samantha is a cutie pie and we are excited to get to play with her. As you can tell from previous posts, we like our cousins. Everyone's been worried that little Samantha won't have a cousin her own age to be best pals with. Don't worry. We have that problem solved.

The Relatives Came

We just returned from our annual Merkley Family Reunion. Of course it was fun. Of course the food was great. And of course we were all exhausted when we got home. We spent the weekend at a relative's cabin in Soapstone (above Kamas). Lots of dirt, rocks, and cousins to play with. And three days wearing long-sleeves! Oh what joy!

The three of us on the high point of Wasatch County (or as close as the GPS could get us)

Blowing bubbles with the cousins

Uncle Wig and his fishing entourage at Mirror Lake

One stroller and three drivers

Two of the best babysitters!

Two little friends
p.s. we're so excited you are walking!

Bye everybody! See you next year!

Thanks to my great sis for putting it all together!

And here's a little something just for Lancey-boy...

Ok, not very exciting, but it was super cute when it was happening. The video ended a little abruptly because I was just sure I was going to end up chasing that flipflop out into the lake.

It has been a while since we posted and so here are some pictures of what we have been up to.
Powell Point - We stayed the night up at 10,000 feet and then went out to Powell Point. Again Eliza loved camping and she finally slept well while camping too.

Then we went to Red Canyon and rode the bike trail for a wile, it was a little hot though.
We have been working on some skim boards too, we finally finished them up and tried them out, they work great, you will have to come and see us to try them out.
We found out Eliza likes corn on the cob a lot!
The community garden has given us quite a bit of variety.
Eliza figured out that she can pick her own grapes and eat them, so you can imagine what we find her with anytime we go outside.
There is more to report, but we just have not had time to post, maybe when things slow down in September....
