Family Summer Activity

Summer, so far, has been busy, hectic (hence not much blogging) and especially hot...hot... hot!  Now the weather aficionados are saying this is Utah's hottest year  on record.  Wow!  Fortunately Utah also is blessed with a  great outdoors - canyons, mountains, lakes, rivers, trails, etc.  So much so that the governor has formed the new Office of Outdoor Recreation - a first of its kind in the country.  Coincidentally, our family, during the past weekend, decided to take advantage of nature's offerings in our state's backyard for some fun activities, and to fend off the heat.  So we went camping and then boating.  It was also our annual family camp.  Here are some pictures from our recreational fun this past weekend - here's to the good times!! ....

At the end of our fun-filled lake activity, we posed one more time for a family picture (missing The Elder) ... and for the memories.  Faafetai (thanks) to our children, daughters and their families, especially our oldest and her husband for planning the activities!
