Camp Out

Brandt Family Style

Last week we got to take a few days off work to enjoy the great outdoors!
The crew consisted of the Binghams, me and Greg, and Zack & Kailey the first night, with Grandma Grandpa Emily and Flint coming for the 2nd night.
We had lots of fun despite the rain and hail that greeted us the first day. Luckily it cleared up after a few hours and we were able to do some hiking and fishing.
We were even given a full rainbow to find the end of! (if you look real hard you can see Heidi and the girls hunting for it)

Greg caught a few fish, then showed the girls how to clean it out. Very gross

The first night there was freeeeezing cold, luckily we had our zero degree mummy bags to keep us warm. Dont worry, the preggo lady had an air mattress to sleep on too. It was actually pretty comfortable.
Especially the 2nd night when it warmed up alot.
Here's Flint telling us a ghost story about vampire cows.
Bob showed me how to make a peach cobbler in the dutch oven so I can make it for girls camp this week. It took a long time to cook, and was kind of mushy, but very delicious.
We also got to try s'mores with strawberry marsh mellow, yuummy!
Im all for camping and had a blast, but I think the very best part was finally getting home and hopping into a hot shower!

Summer Fest

Andrea and I went to the Orem Summer Fest parade where we got to see the oldest living Orem native twins Leslie and Lester, many high school bands/cheerleaders, horses, motorcycle cops, floats with miss and little miss girls, and many more festive and fun orem things.
We wanted to stay and go to the fair/carnival and find something yummy like funnel cakes to eat, but it started pouring rain before the parade even finished.

So we went home and had Greg take us out to eat instead.

Went to see UP in 3D with our friends Kelly and Casey, it was a really cute movie. I would have been fine watching it in regular D, I think it looks weird through one pair of normal glasses with the 3D glasses on top. But the other 3 thought it was awesome.

8 thumbs up for UP!

My Baby Sisters Graduation

Ok, she's not really the baby, but shes my baby sister. Congratulations Sierra!! Class of 09!
Dad Bea Me and Mom watching the "thrilling" ceremony

She is so smart, she had every tassel and medal you could get. Top 10 percent of her class!

I love Texas, its going to be so weird going home to visit and being in a completely new state, new house, new country (pretty much)
So I had to soak up all the Texas I could get.
The first two days were overcast and pretty windy, so I didnt hop in the pool with the crazy Lucy. I did get some pool time in later though :-)
I gave her "swimming lessons" aka me telling her where to swim to in the pool.
Swim to mermaid rock.... ok now over to the waterfall.... now jump over the fountain.....

I was so glad to see all of my family
