Best Time Ever!

I love our annual Ruby's Inn Retreat. It is so nice to get away, but it's even better to do it with 90 of your best friends...who also happen to be family. Life is great when you have a cool family!

Hunter and I headed to Henrieville on Wednesday, after work. Our pile of toys:

We spent most of Thursday in Henrieville with the Rigbys. The boys went adventuring while I had to deal with a work crisis...on my vacation! What a rip. My dad took Nathan and Hunter to Sheep Creek:

Wow. I sure love southern Utah!

On Friday Hunter and I drove around Tropic Reservoir. Later, the Carters and Albrechts arrived, as well as most of my other relatives. The fun was in full swing!

On Saturday, Hunter went hiking while I hung out with my sisters. I joined Hunter in Tropic later, where he and many others played baseball. They had a lot of fun and I took about a billion pictures. LOL! I also decided I really need a zoom lens.

You have to look carefully at that last pic...can you see what Sandy is doing? That's right, she's covering the infield while talking on the phone! Only Sandy, lol!

The Bradshaws joined us on Saturday, which was a nice surprise because they originally weren't going to make it. For about an hour or two, my mama had all her daughters and grandkids with her! We seriously have the cutest buddies!

Gorgeous pictures once again! I love Ruby's! I thought the same thing when I was trying to take pictures at the ball game. Can't wait for next year.

I think a monthly retreat to Ruby's sounds like a fine idea! It was a great weekend. Can't wait to do it again next year.

I loved being down there with everyone too! I wish we lived down there! Those pictures are awesome!

Zoom lense or not...those are some really good pictures. It was so much fun to see you! And once again there wasn't enough time to properly visit. We need to get together again soon!

Great pictures! Great fun! Great family! I can't believe we didn't get pictures of all of our FIVE daughters together!!! I guess we were having too much fun to even think about it.

Hey...blame that cell phone experience on your dear Dad.
