This past weekend, we escaped the heat and went camping on the Mogollon Rim. Our campsite, which was near perfect, was by Kehl Springs and Milk Ranch Point.
When we camp, we do the true camping: tents, tarps, sleeping bags, and homemade swings. We also have a lot of fun. We like to bring card games and sit around and make fun of eachother (in an endearing way :) We went with my family, which is fun because most of the kids have someone near their age to play with. Good memories!

We got some rain while we were up there and it cooled everything off nicely. This was a beautiful view from the top of the rim looking down on Camp Geronimo.
Isn't this one of the cutest pictures? I think Canon was getting tickled on the homemade swing.

Now that all the work is done, it's time to sit, relax and have a snack!
We did have one night where it rained most of the night. The ground wasn't too wet when we woke up, but after a rousing game of soccer, there was enough dirt on the kids' shoes to make me think we would never get it out!

Awwwwww! He's so cute. Canon carried that hammer around and hit things like he'd seen Dad do when he pounded the tent pegs into the ground. In this picture, he's trying to figure out what kind of force field is protecting Aubree.

Being sick is NO FUN!!

Guess who we had visit our house this past week? A Strep Throat bug! I'm not sure where we got it, but Canon came down with it first and it's been moving it's way up through the family by weight. Canon suffered with it for 3 days before we figured out what it was. He started on Sat last week, then Raegan got it Tues morning, Kiesten Tues night, and Rylee got it Thurs night of last week. Everyone who's had it is feeling better, although we still have to take medication until Fri. Aubree, Scott and I haven't had it yet, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time. :(

Everyone threw up with this bug, so Canon felt like he needed to carry around a pot. Poor guy!
