Quote of the Week

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” – Paulo Choelho

Fact of the Week

Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died within 10 months of each other, all of drug-related causes, all at 27 years old (it doesn't state this, but they all started with Js too.....)

Joke of the Week

Dad’s pager beeped, summoning him to the hospital, where he is an anesthetist. As he raced toward the hospital, a patrol car sped up behind him—lights flashing, siren blaring. So Dad hung his stethoscope out the window to signal that he was on an emergency call. Within seconds came the policeman’s response: a pair of handcuffs flapping outside the police car window.

First Camping Trip of 2010 - Little Sahara

Yay, first camping trip of the year!!!
Right when we got there (on Thursday) Topher made a new friend, Jackson.

Of course it didn't take them long to start burying themselves!




Hello Baer!

Dusty

Gizmo

Sampson

Look! No one is here!!!

Here goes Bren on a ride.



Look at all of that wide open sand!


Too cool for pics!

Now it's Topher's turn to get buried!

Love the toothless grin! Don't trip on his head!

Boy digging that hole is hard work!







Here is happy girl, Aubrey!

Nicole is getting ready to go!

The weather was a little windy on Thursday, but we were still able to have our campfire. Then Friday was a little more windy so we hung out in the Turner motor home and sang church hymns (NOT!) We were still able to have our campfire on Friday. Here is Saturday. Much better!So I heard is snowed on you poor saps that got left behind. Well, here is what it looked like for us!!


Happy boy, Brady!

Classic Dave!!!

Kevin, chillin

Okay, so our last trip of the 2009 season was Labor Day Weekend. We went to wasp haven also known as Utah Lake. Some got in Dave and Lisa's awning and stayed there all winter. When they opened it this trip, the sun warmed those little buggers up and they started flying all over. Who says you can't get exercise while on vacation!!!

Jackson

Okay, so it was Senor Turner's birthday. On Saturday, we did taco and marguarita night!

Aptly decorated cake!


Singing Happy Birthday

When you're that old, it takes a long time to blow out your candles. Partly because there are so many and partly because you have no more lung capacity!



This is the view from my new hoodie Terry got me in Milwaukee. Pretty cool, eh?

What choo lookin at?Look at that moon! This was Saturday night's campfire!


Here is Tim way up on the ridge. I love the zoom capacity of my new camera!!!

Hey, I found a couple of riders!!!

Peace out!

Here is the big center pow wow

I had to take a pic of Terry's quad for him!

One more of the cake, just for fun!


We had a great time. It was SO NOT crowded! We missed those of you who punked out!! Hopefully you will be able to make it down for the next one!!!

Topher's Riddle Box

For Topher's first grade class, one of the things they get to look forward to is the week they get to do the Riddle Box.

They choose and item to put in the box....

Decorate their box....

then make five clues so that the kids in the class can try to guess what is in there. They bring the box on Monday, then read a clue every day. Then on Friday, they get to open the box and show what was in it.

Here are Topher's clues:


1. It lives in the forest

2. It loves bananas

3. It has fur

4. It lives in trees

5. It can be many different colors


Can you guess???








If you said monkey...................wrong!!!!!














It is KUNG FU MONKEY!!!! (duh!)

Best buddies forever. The cookie is because he got his work done at school and hence no homework!
