Summer at the Lakes

So we've been to the Lake a few times this summer...LOL!

This month we went to Saguaro Lake Aug. 8th (last post), then Canyon Lake on the 15th, and back to Saguaro Lake on the 22nd. (Do you see a trend here?) It was hard to stay home this weekend - so we didn't. Saturday Night we took the camp trailer up to Hawley Lake and camped for the night. LOL - This weekend we are going camping somewhere for Labor Day Weekend. I bet you anything we end up at Roosevelt Lake...I wouldn't be surprized.

Not sure how much fun we can pack into one summer before the bishop starts paying us a visit!

Don't get me wrong - we've been to church with Mom and Dad....just not at our ward for quite sometime. The ward members are starting to treat us like long lost friends. Here's a few of my favorite pics from the last few weeks.

Canyon Lake - August 15, 2009

Dad & Kirt went fishing in the morning then we met them at the beach for lunch. We took Tyler with us and our friend Shana Stailey.
Tyler and Shana learned how to use the kneeboard. We saw a ram on the side of the cliffs. It was a great day but Canyon Lake is just too crowded.

Saguaro Lake - August 22, 2009

This time we took Tyler and our friend Sierra West and the Bottomleys for the day. It poured on us in the afternoon - we were soaked to the bone but had a great time. After the rain there was a beautiful double rainbow across the Lake and a random waterfall coming off the side of the mountain. The kids had fun playing on the water trampoline and Kari worked on jumping the wakes on her wakeboard.

Hawley Lake - August 29, 2009
Saturday both Kirt & I had to work. Kari was home so we decided to take the camp trailer out for some time in the mountains. We fished in the morning and only caught one crawdad! However, Amanda did catch her first stick...LOL!
Next time we are bringing Kirt a lounge chair! I forgot my camera so I had to rely on my cell phone for pictures. It was so beautiful - we almost hit a bull and a cow on the way up the mountain then saw wild horses along the roadside. The elk were bugle-ing all night and then the coyotes started howling.
It was great!
We are so blessed to be able to play this summer in between all the long work hours. It has been a long time coming. We hope next time you'll come with us!
