We just got back from our annual trip to Whiskeytown. We always love our time there. We love to see our extended family, camp and play in the lake.
Ashlyn loved the lake! She loves to play in the water! It was pretty hot, so we all spent a lot of time hanging out in the water, trying to keep cool. Grandpa and Ashlyn
Ashlyn and Jason
Tara and Ashlyn (and Aunt Debbie)

Kristin has worked for Jen for a few years and started working for me a few months ago. She comes twice a week for a few hours and makes me one happy girl!! She helps out around the house, cuts my time in the laundry room in half and even watches the kids while I run errands!!She came up with Jen to help out since Jeff could only stay for a few days. She brought her friend, Sam, with her for the weekend. We had a good time hanging out with them and playing games at night when the kids went to bed.
We saw another one of these "talking bugs". They are huge and so gross! When they get mad they sound like they are talking! They are feisty and of course fascinating to the kids. Some of the kids trying to catch it...Lauren and Ashlyn checking it out
We hung out around camp, played cards, chatted and layed in the hammock..
I love the relationship he has with her. It is so sweet.
Ashlyn had a hard time leaving her bunny in her bed. When I could get her to leave the bunny, she would drag a blanket out!
Ashlyn loved to camp. Every morning, she would wake up and say, "I wanna go caping now." Camping to her was just being outside in our main campsite. When I was taking down the tent, she kept trying to walk off into the trees. When I asked her where she was going, she put her arms out, kind of shook her head and with a "duh" attitude said, "caping!" I thought it was pretty funny! Cute girl. She is growing up way too fast!
