I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills.....

We went camping last weekend with my older brother Mike, his wife Amy and their four kids. My little brother John, his wife Tiffany and their baby Kaylee also came. We loved it! I was freaking out on the way up there because of some serious looking dark clouds. As we got closer it started to pour. Needless to say, I was not happy at this point. Then we missed our turn and went up a little higher toward the rim, it started hailing. The whole time I was telling David that it wasn't possible to camp in weather like this, that we weren't going to be able to find Mike, and that we should go back down to Payson and get a hotel room. Well, David refused to go back until we found the spot we were looking for. As we got closer to the spot, the rain started to let up and David found Mike. Everything worked out great. It never rained again and the weather was great. The girls told us later that while we were lost they both prayed that the weather would get better so we could camp and that we would find my brother. Ahhh, the faith of little children. We really had a great time.
Sorry people, I know that there are a million pictures here, but it was so much fun, I couldn't leave anything out.

David is the best. I thought you would all like to see the man I fell in love with. He gave me this look and I was sold :). Who wouldn't be?

This is my little brother John, isn't he so cute :)!
This is his wife Tiffany and their baby Kaylee. Aren't they cute too?
Joelle and Josie were hardly ever separated. Between playing Spirit (the horse movie), and finding worms at the creek, they never had time to be bored.
Katie loved the outdoors. Walking on uneven ground didn't even phase her she just kept going and going.

Marcus kept finding walking sticks for all the kids.
No worries, no one got hurt, it was all fun and games.

Emma was the biggest helper with Katie all weekend. Anytime Katie would cry she would find her and take care of her. Katie was pretty happy with it all. Emma carried her everywhere.
We hardly ever saw Jake. He was happy to lose himself in the great outdoors.
Here is David doing what he does does best.

How cute is my niece Kaylee. She was a very good baby on this camp out.
We went down to Haigler Creek on the 2nd day. It was the highlight of the whole camp out.

Katie would have stayed in the creek all day if she could have.

The water was FREEZING! But the boys were brave!
