Another summer down and it flew by in a hurry. Cia and the kids came for the last few weeks of summer vacation. The kids had so much fun swimming, camping, making up dances, singing, laughing, and posing for their Aunt Cara. I love these pictures Cara took of the girls. Check out her website!!

Getting back from a four wheeler ride! Kenadi loves rides.

BrookeLyn posing for the camera right before she started feeling sick. Poor girl:(

Ryan and Kenadi. They are pretty darn cute!

Ryson acting silly with his cousin Stratton.

Kenadi talking to her Papa on the Walkie Talkie.

Every summer we have a Smithson Reunion and camp for 3 nights. In the past we have slept in a tent which I thoroughly enjoyed, NOT!! Doug Brewer has been kind enough to let us take his camp trailer these past 2 years. It sure does make camping so much more enjoyable. However, this year BrookeLyn and I had to leave two days early. She came down with a bad case of the stomach flu. She had been looking forward to this trip for months and months because her cousins from Oregon were there :( Ryan ended up staying and camping with our other 2 kids. Kenadi had so much fun playing in the dirt. She said "she loves doing damping." I snapped a few pictures the first day.

What great memories we made this past weekend with our Optometry friends. We met in Marysvale Utah and spent the weekend riding ATV's, tubing, fishing, visiting around the campfire and eating smores until we were sick! Thanks you guys for the fun trip. It was worth the 8 hour drive. I'm already looking forward to our next trip! ~VEGAS~ We missed you Olsens!

Kiara, Jennifer, BrookeLyn, Jodie, and Kenadi


Myself, Les, and Kristy getting ready to eat. What we do BEST!

Leslie posing. Wish so badly she lived closer. :(

Nephew C.J. who I love. He is the sweetest. He's leaving in a month to go play football at Dixie college and then will serve a mission in December!!

Ryson and Ketner. Ryson always lets Ketner know that he's the fastest and the strongest, but Ketner always lets Ryson know that he will always be the tallest.


Baby Kenadi as everyone calls her. She wears the pants in this family!

Dang he's HANDSOME!

What a FUN weekend we had as a family. Lots and lots of cousins running around screaming, laughing, fighting, playing and just loved being together. We enjoyed watching softball games, playing at the park, swimming, parades, fireworks, and our most favorite~~ EATING! We hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!!
