Amy & Dalls Win

They were our first visitors. They came late Wednesday night and left early Monday morning. So we had four full days together. They were afraid they had over-stayed their welcome but, not so. They are the best guests ever. They clean up after themselves and us. They took care of their kids and ours. Amy even mowed our lawn. It was really fun to have them.
We took them on our inflatable two-seater kayaks. This was my first time in an inflatable and it was so much fun. Not as stressful as a hard shell. I'm done with those. We forgot our camera but I'm telling you--yes YOU, it was fun. YOU would love it. (So come visit.) Next up for kayaking: the Roses. Can't wait.
I wasn't the best host. We ran out of milk and Amy wanted to bake something--anything, but we didn't have all the ingredients. And when we went camping I forgot the plates. But we had a good time anyway. We went camping at Pine Flats Hotsprings. There are hotsprings by the river. Great for kids. Not too hot and not smelly. Here are a billion pictures:

I say this a lot when I comment, but I really miss Chloe being in our primary class.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I love outdoors stuff and your kids will have so many awesome memories from the things you guys do.

Hey, if you want to meet halfway. We are going to Lava Hot Springs on the 29th and 30th with friends (cool ones). We are inviting the whole earth and I'm doing my part to extend it to you too! Long Shot but hey, it'd be fun to have you guys there.

Katie- Just so you know.... Shayne does not know the ending of Breaking Dawn. He was just trying to mess with everyone. Have fun reading. It is VERY good in my opinion.
