Birthday, Fathers day and Family Vacation 2012 :)

June 14th through the 18th we had a exciting adventure :)
Our family, the whole famn Damily, went on vacation to Lake Powell. Personally camping at the lake really wasn't all the great. It was hot and windy and kinda miserable. It was so fun to be there all together as one big family. I have been appreciative of my unique family for years but this last year or two I have really been moved by the closeness and  beauty of our family. I really do hope that there are other people out there who are as incredibly blessed as me.

 Aside from the hot windy lake, we got to do some unforgettable things. On my birthday David agreed to drive an extra hour and a half away to bring me to the Grand Canyon :) It was so Beautiful. I have never teared up at the site of anything other than my babies coming into this world. I was so excited about seeing this incredible view that when I looked out over this gaping hole in the earth and watched my babies gaze in awe, I actually had to wipe a tear from my face. Maybe this is me being totally cheesy but this memory will be hard to beat.
 Had we not just left the Canyon, the drive home may have been the best view I have ever witnessed. Awesome.

There are a few more shots from the awesome trip :) Most of the pics that I like the best were not taken with my camera. My dad had a neighbor camper take a shot of our whole group and that one warms my heart :) I will have to figure out how to work it into my blog later on.
