We've made it a tradition to go to this cabin in Star Valley over Labor Day weekend each year, with my side of the family.
It's the perfect place for us, with lots of room for the kids to run & play, property for the horses to wander around on, and land to ride the motorcycles.

We surprised my parents, who recently celebrated 40 years, with a surprise Anniversary party! I have to give kudos to my SIL, Dawna, who organized the whole thing. We each wrote 8 memories of our parents down, and Dawna put them all into a book for them to read. :)
Some of us went over to the fish hatchery Sunday morning. The kids loved it! I thought it was pretty cool too!
We also took a quick trip up to Cottonwood Lake.....
We do a family picture each year as well, since it's usually the only time the entire family is together at the same time. This is one of the "getting ready" pictures. My sister Brianne came up with the captions. (see below)
Trinidee- You can take this chair from my cold dead fingers....
Kevin- How you doin? Yup, still got it.
Kyle- I got this third nipple... wanna see?
Dad- Kyle is gross I'm gonna vomit... bluh bluh. How'd I get this fish hook in my lip?
Kody- I'm soooo boooored!
Tyrel- Is that where the camera goes? I'm sooooo tired.....
Dawna- I could really use a manicure...
Brianne- The more you move the tighter I squeeeeeeze...
Maci- (cracking knuckles) I'm gonna get Jovi
Mom- Is that a stain?!
Brianna- Pictures yay! I lOVE PICTURES!!!!
Season- I'm... soooo... pretty...
Katie- Logan's psycho!
Logan- Ahhhhh! I'm psycho!
Luke- ...I like smurfs...
Bailee- What did you just call me?!
Jovi- I love my shoes...
Ryker- Look what I can do!!!
Easton- Where am I?
Toby- Practice smile... CHEEEEEEEESE!! What the... here comes Ryker!!
Sam- I must focus... unleash the force, unleash the force on all these crazies...
Shane- Concentrate young padowan... how long has this rash been on your leg?
Tia- Why, why, WHY?! WE ARE LOSING THE LIGHT!!
And here's the end result.
Yeah, Trinidee was done by this point.
We heard this kitten meowing one night, and quickly made friends with her....
It was a fun, memorable weekend. I hope we have many more to come!
