1st Annual Elder's Quorum Campout

This June we had our 1st ever Elder's Quorum Campout. It was a very small gathering but it was alot of fun. Here are some highlights of the event.

The kids loved playing on this little car that one of the families brought for their little boy. Eventually we had to put a helmet on Razy because the older kids thought it would be cool to send her down the hill. She had a close call almost colliding into a car at the bottom of the hill, but barely missed it. Doble decided he was going to send her down the hill buy himself. Well his aim was WAY off. Needless to say she LOVED it.

Doble enjoyed himself some polly pocket time with Sarah. He was just really interested in the car really.

The kids all loved climbing this tree in Matt's tree stand. Keenan was able to move the stand up and down the tree by himself. The tree stand was used earlier that night to light the fire.

Anna taking her turn in the stand. Lil E couldn't wait for his turn.

Finally Lil E gets his turn. He sat there for a long time.

Razy and Doble loved playing with Anna. I think Doble was crushin on her. She is a cutie, but a little too old for him.

Here is the whole clan before heading out the next morning. It was alot of fun. Hope to see you all there next year guys and hopefully more join us.

Day Out With Thomas

July 12th we took the kids (this was mainly for Doble) to see the REAL Thomas the Tank Engine. This was a dream come true to our HUGE Thomas fan. We started the trip off by driving half way to the Train Museum and getting a hotel room for the night. The kids got excited to take a swim in the hotel's indoor swimming pool. However, the thing was ice cold and we all soaked in the hot tub instead. The next morning we drove the rest of the way to the beautiful Snoqualmie Train Museum for a fun filled day full of Thomas activities. The kids got to explore the old trains they have at the museum, take a ride on the yellow speed car, meet Sir Topham Hat, get train tatoos, roam the gift shop, and much more. However, the highlight of the day for Doble was taking the 20 min train ride on the REAL Thomas.
Meeting Sir Topham Hat. We got really lucky to get in line so quickly. The boys only had to wait about 5 mins to meet the Famous conductor.

These tatoos took Forever to wear off. Doble didn't mind.
