Family Camp 2008

So about a week and a half ago we headed out for our family vacation of the summer. We started out Friday at a family reunion in Magrath for Jon's mothers family the Walton's. Great fun was had there, they have what is basically a huge slip and slide built into the side of a hill and the kids LOVED it. It was great I got to know some of cousins a lot better and basicaly everyone just socialized and played all weekend.

Sunday we headed to hill spring and visited an old friend of mine and stayed over night there, then we headed to waterton for two nights. We had a great time just enjoying our family and the out doors, we went to red rock canyon had ice cream at The Big Scoop, and went to cameron lake to wade in the water.

Next we went and spent one night in the Johnston canyon camp ground and then we hiked up to the upper falls in Johnston canyon. It is a beautiful walk and if you get the chance you must do it. after the hike we headed home to our own warm beds. It was a fabulous trip we had a ton of fun and really just relaxed and enjoyed each others company I dont know why but there was a lot of talk about underwear ( ryans recent obscession) but you really had to be there to get it.

Anyway here are a few pictures:

Ryan insisted I get a picture of his bubble, I didnt realize what I was photographing until later.

Skyler chillin by the campfire at Johnston Campground

Skyler had quite the snooze in the kid pack on the Johnston canyon hike

I was just trying to get a nice picture of a little boy walking by a fence but he kept turining around and sticking his tounge out whenever I went to take a picture. What a goof. This is by Cameron lake in Waterton

Just a cute picture of the squirt taken by Jon

Me and Breanna by Cameron falls. Taken by Jon.
