Busy Weekend!

What a busy weekend we had! Rusty and I went with my family (mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and nieces) on our annual camping trip this past weekend. We left on Friday and got back Sunday morning in time to get ready to go out to Rusty's grandma's house for their family's annual reunion. Like my family, he has a lot of relatives from California. It was good to see many faces again and meet new ones. Here are a few pictures from our weekend:

Gage/Tate Family:



Sitting by the bonfire...you can see the rays of sun in this picture...


Skinny (left), who is still here from our wedding, and his son Molly (right) from California


I thought this was a cool picture I took of the kids playing on the hay...


The whole group who came to the reunion


Just a few camping pictures:

Canyon slept part of the night in our tent but then we let him out at one point...then I woke up to about 10 coyotes howling so I made Russ go out and get him.....well, as we were waking up that morning he decided to climb into "mommy's" bed .....LOL


Can't you just hear him saying..."MOM!"



Dutch oven chili on Saturday night


Playing fetch


Sawing wood for the fire...


Cute kiss


Feeding him part of my sandwich. Notice he is using my hands because his hands were dirty...


Isn't he handsome!?!?




So...on a side note...I went to a bridal fair a few weekends ago with my cousin Kinlee who is getting married next July. There were tons of photographers, videographers, bakery's, florists, D.J's, etc. Anyways, we came across our photographer for our wedding, Artistry Portraits http://www.artistryportraits.com/
They immediately remembered me and the wedding and mentioned they used a few pictures to show off their work! I thought it was the coolest thing they had chosen pictures from our wedding to display...I had to take a picture! I was tempted to ask them if I could have the picture or buy it for a cheap price after they were done using it...

That is so exciting that they are using your picture. The people that did my senior pictures used a couple of fine. It made me feel a little famous knowing that everyone is going to see it.

I looks like you guys had fun camping. We have not been since spring.
