The bug boys invade the zoo!

Steven, Isaac and myself went to the zoo for one last outing before school started. We had fun looking at the animals, going to the bird show and riding the train. Here are some of the pics.

We liked the orangutan's the best and the baby elephant was fun to watch. The weather was awesome and the crowds weren't all that bad either.

Camping at last!

Well, we finally made it out as a family camping this year. We went to Smith and Morehouse reservoir and had a good time. We chanced our luck by taking the trailer and hoping that the trans in the truck would hold up. We made it there and back safely and had fun fishing, cooking, starting fires without matches and enjoying the outdoors. Here are some pics.

Here is the start of Stevens fire and a cool set of rock out croppings that look like a house made of stone.

And last of all Steven and Isaac crossing a river having a good time.

Well, that's about all I was able to do this summer but Dixie and the boys had lots of other little adventures together. If we are lucky we will be able to sneak in another camping trip before winter hits.

The Wasatch Classic

Well, its been awhile since I posted. Our computer crashed and its been awhile since I was able to get everything working. Back in July me and Isaac drove the bug to Provo to go to the Wasatch classic. Its a vw show. We had a fun time. We didn't enter because we had to leave early to go to a family reunion. We took lots of pictures. Here are just a few of our favorites.

Here is what I want to get next as far as VW's go

Its called a double cab and they are pretty rare and expensive. This is what Dixie likes Its a Karmann Ghia. She says that is what she would get if she had to.

Isaac's favorites are these. He wants to build a baja bug for his first car.

Steven likes them all, but he really wants one made of legos. He really thinks this one is going to be his
You never know, it may still be around. (unless a double cab comes up for sale in my price range) but don't tell him that.
