Stretching out the Summer

This last weekend we went camping and boating with our friends at Jordanelle. Curtis + Ashley and us went camping, and we are so glad because we've been wanting to go all summer but didn't have anyone to go with. We drove my parents club wagon van up with the boat attached, and made it up Parleys at a roaring 35 MPH and got to the campground at midnight. We roasted hot dogs, made dutch oven cobbler (thank you Maddie and Tanner Purser for the dutch oven you gave us for our wedding!) and of course s'mores and made it to bed a little after 2 am.

We forgot to bring a can opener for the peaches, but luckily we found a hammer and hit the crap out of the can until it opened.

Dancing around our glorious blazing fire

Peach cobbler made in record time - 25 minutes

We cheated and took the back bench out of the van and slept in it. I guess in the middle of the night I (Rod) started sleep talking. I woke up Tanya and said - "there's a rat in here - there's a rat in here and I know because I felt it" She, of course, didn't know I was sleep talking and freaked out. She got out of the van and honestly thought there was a rat. Sorry! There's a reason I didn't tell you about my sleep talking before we got married.

Saturday morning some more friends came up (Sharla and her boyfriend Nic, and Gentry) and we went boating. The weather was pretty amazing and it was a lot of fun. I got some practice learning to drive and use the boat.

Just a couple of posers.

Sharla and Nic - we luff them together.

Gentry got up quick even though it was only her 2nd time.


Da girls (Gent included)

The guys just took turns tubing and kicking the crap out of each other. We all got at least minor injuries. Nic and I slammed into each other and our shins hit - but worth it for crazy tubing!
