Mammoth Creek

We had a great time in Mammoth last week! Here are some of the highlights...

Hiking in Bryce Canyon, horseback riding, playing on the slip n' slide, curling up with Jane Austen on the deck and listening to the stream and the humming birds, girls day of shopping, boys day fishing in the Boulders, kite flying, playing cards when the kids were asleep, resting, playing, talking, laughing, reconnecting.

It was so fun to be with my family last week. We had everyone there except for Lex. One of these years our schedules will ALL align. We missed you Lexi Lou!

The kids got along so well and would run off and entertain themselves for hours at a time. It was so great! We all got some good quality time with each other and I miss everybody already! Thanks for the fun week Lewis fam!






This was so classic. Brighton and Don went out to the shop, turned barbie room, to play. We heard Brighton singing at the top of her little lungs and peeked in to find this.





We had a great time horseback riding and the kids loved it. You'll notice there are no pictures of my hubby in this segment. He was bucked off a horse named Satan, that's right, Satan, when he was younger and would go nowhere near these harmless, tame animals. :)




Grandpa and Coop playin' a little one on one with Brighton dancing on the sidelines.

Satan the horse?! That really would put a damper on the whole 'nice horsey' thing! I loved seeing these pictures of the fam and your folks. I particularly like the one of Cheryl and Brighton on the horse. That is just a feel good photo op right there. If you come this way again for Disney you'll have to tell us so we can take you the extra hour south to Vista and pick limes off the trees and introduce Brighton to the donkey's! And they have perfectly reasonable names.

Wow. I want to stay in Mammoth Creek. What a beautiful place.
Satan the horse cracked me up too. My brother won't get near a horse because he had been bucked off as a child, too. But that horse's name certainly wasn't Satan. I don't think you have much of a chance starting out with that one.
