labor day

our labor day was fantastic. we started it out with a ward breakfast and then we went swimming up at the spanish fork reservoir with hailey and steve. it sure is nice when you have great family around that you love to spend time with. Hailey and Steve and Jack are fantastic and really hilarious. and going places with steve outdoors is always an adventure, he loves the outdoors and is super knowledgeable about everything. he is kind of converting taylor and myself to more environmentalist ways. we think we may go camping with them in october.




this is after taylor and i took a little inflatable kayak to the center of the reservoir. once we got to the middle, you could still see the bottom, the water was really quite clean and it was only about 12 feet deep. i made taylor dive to the bottom to get some white thing i saw, it turned out to be garbage, he got me back when he tipped the kayak over. but he can never get me back for that dead catfish i threw at him last summer on our trip to moab. he had a large red welt for days. turns out dead cat fish are poisonous. who knew.





this is jack, he is as cute as ever. he quite loved the swim.

After our wonderful afternoon at the reservoir we decided to go find a little restaurant with fresh fruit shakes. steve told us he would pick out the flavors if we waited in the car. he came back with some delicious shakes and a wonderful surprise, a footlong hotdog with cheddar cheese salsa sauce on it. the rule was, we all had to take a bite. Hailey couldn't stand to look at it.
jack loved the hotdog.

That is pretty amazing that Leisy and Kent and Zeb were with the Starkeys and the other half were playing here in Orem. That's wonderful. Leisy I miss you saying, 'What the trash.' No one says that around here.
