The condo in St. George has been sold. We are now out of real estate for the time being. But we did get a new "condo" of sorts. We bought a camping trailer! This toy goes well with Rinar's new truck he got a few months ago.
Finally, we were able to take it out for a little spin and give it a try. We went to Prosser Reservoir in California. It was fantastic.
It was a beautiful Labor Day weekend. There were many simple, wonderful moments that we shared together. We went down to the reservoir and the kids had tons of fun chucking rocks into the lake. There wasn't any sand, but we always enjoy rock-chucking. Zach and Raef did a little bit of swimming also.
Here, Eli is showing off his muscles. Nice, huh? And, of course I forgot Julia's swimsuit, so she did it European style.
After our visit to the lake, we came back and the kids played keep away with the football, they took turns riding on the skateboard, they jumped on rocks, and built a big fire. It was fun feeding the fire with pine needles.
Then it was story time. Eli listened to Zach's impromptu story, and then he told a story of his own. It was hilarious. He started making up a story and then Zach continually tried to mess him up. Eli would say something like, fire and then Zach would say, "wire? tire?" etc. They were laughing and thought it was the funniest thing ever.
At night, the highlight for the little ones was the head lamps. Harry, especially, was in heaven. It got dark and they whipped out the lamps and walked around and looked at stuff. It was the bomb-diggity.
After the babies went to bed, we stayed up and played a couple of games of Yahtzee. The boys loved it.
In the morning we ate pancakes and bacon, played outside some more, and then wrapped it up for our short ride home.
I am excited about this new chapter in our lives. In the future, we will be planning a lot of family vacations and activites around camping and our condo on wheels. There will be many wonderful memories made together, and I can't wait.
