my favorite week of the year= trip up to firefighters campground at flaming gorge for the calder famile reunion!!
it was really rainy the whole time there, but we really wanted to go to the lake one day. so the 6 calder girls all took a trip to the lake event thought it was overcast, and probably only 75 degrees. here we are before we took the plunge!
sunday night we always have dinner together with the whole family, and we have some kind of program. here ash and i are just messing around while having smores after the program
these fine ladies are my cousins, and aunt. i love them quite alot. my aunt has gone to girls camp for years and she happened to have a camp song book! so we all sang along to the silly girls camp songs that always bring back memories:)
we always go on this pretty great hike on sunday. this year we got 21 people to come with us. a bunch of the older boy cousins found it one year while exploring. it starts right off the firefighters memorial by our camp loop, then goes down the side of the mountain to a field. then you climb down a bunch of rocks a ways, then at the bottom is a river that we hike up to the falls! its the best because we found it. here we are when we jumped in at the end, then everyone else jumped in! so much for not swimming on sundays...ha :/
here is kaylee haha one of my 2nd cousins, she is definetly a character, but we love her.
