Desolation Canyon

We tried to fit Caleb into the dry box but he was a little big!

Michelle and Dave hiding from the wind.. and the kids! They were never alone.

Ryann, Cadin, and Macey playing a serious game of Sorry

Macey and her new "cousin", she tells everyone "Hey you know I have a cousin and her name is Ryann. You spell her name R Y A N N."

Steve was our fearless rower


5 of the cutest river kids! Cadin, Ryann, Corbin, Macey and Caleb


My sister and brother-in-law invited us to go on a river trip with them down Desolation Canyon. We took them up on their offer and headed out last week with a couple of Dave's siblings and their families. Dave pretty much did all the hard work, we just had to show up and have fun. I think that Steve originally went because he was promised amazing food (which it was..even scorched). Despite the wind we fought for a few days we had an amazing time, the kids LOVED it, our group was the best, the food was amazing, and I came to the realization that a week of camping won't kill a person. On our third night camping the wind was blowing so hard that it busted the pole holding our tent up so ever night after we had to come up with a new way of putting it up, which was fun. I was a little worried about taking Caleb but he was a champ. He loved it along with all the other kids. We loved being on the river, camping, the canyon was amazing, and we were able to go on a couple of fun hikes. Thanks Michelle and Dave for adding some adventure to our lives and making the trip so awesome!
Out of all the pictures I can't believe that we don't have a group photo so here is my group photo! Michelle (Dave's sister) found these glasses on a hike and had everyone take a picture with them on!
