All the kids did really well and loved playing and exploring. There was a little store not to far away and they ALL took a few trips each day to spend a dollar on some candy or goodies. Sherry's sister and her family were there as were Derek's parents and his brother and sister and their families. There were lots of kids to run around with and they all got plenty dirty climbing around and hiking in the hills behind our camp.
The happy hosts:
On Thursday the kids played and fished and played Go Fish.
Let me just give a shout out for Tyler being Super Dad. Really, he's a great help with the kids and spends time with them doing whatever makes them happy. Derek rented a "party boat" and it was party time. Caylee lasted an hour, but the other three stayed the distance for some good results:
Brock was plum tuckered!
Which meant nap time when they got back. I loved this time because I actually got to scrapbook in my trailer while the boys slept. I wasn't chasing or referreeing or anything but what I wanted to be doing. I kinda love those selfish minutes.
Sherry and I got matching shirts courtesy of Tyler and Derek's last fishing trip. Ever see a photo of yourself and think, "Ew gross I have got to lose weight?" Yeah, this would be one of those. But, the SAGE bling looks good nonetheless (if you're in to advertising for your husband's fly-fishing brand.)
Friday was a great day, too. The kids went fishing again in the morning and the girls had a little beauty shop going on. We played some games and then boo-yeah we got us a major thunder storm with the works. Yeah, the works would be lightening, thunder, and even hail! Tyler took the little boys to LOA, UT (seriously, it stands for Love One Another) and they missed the big storm, but we were really happy because being cooped up in the trailers was hard enough for the girls. Plus Derek caught this fatty:
Oh, and have I mentioned we're potty trained. Not that I'll toot the "No accidents" horn, but we're doing okay as long as we ask him if he needs to go. When he had an accident right before we left, Tyler cut his undies off and trashed them. You gotta love kid #4. With #1 I would have scrubbed them clean.

Love these boys!
This is meltdown 496 of Caylee's for the weekend. This one was caused by not having any more clean shorts and not wanting to wear her pants. Whatever. I took a series of these photos, which one day I'll mail to her when she complains to me about her 6 year old drama queen.
