Labor Day Reunion

Every other year, Labor Day Weekend, we have a family reunion at Uncle John's in Shingle Springs, California. Our excursion for the year was a trip to Gold Bug Mine. Here's my treasure I dug up!
This sign was in the gift shop at the mine. The family thought I should have purchased it since it fit me so well. I don't know what they're talking about! But I have to say, I've been trying to keep up better with the house and kids now that I'm working. That's why I haven't blogged so much in recent times.

Mom and Grandpa were helping Ethan walk up to the Stamping Mill.
This swing was the toy of choice for the weekend. Maybe we have a swinging chair in our future, if only there was a tree to put it in.
Family pictures after church. This is what we got. I knew I had packed Isaac's church clothes, and I thought I had Ethan's too. Obviously, I forgot one.
Here's the family infront of our tent. We really enjoyed sleeping in the trailer.
You may notice Rob isn't in any of the pictures, that's because he had to work Friday and it's a 12 hour drive. Coming for the weekend would have been a long, hard trip. Rob was sorely missed.

A friend from ISU, Karen, made the trip with me. I don't know how she did it, but she managed to escape my camera. It was such a nice thing Karen did by coming. Thanks!

What fun! I love the "church" picture. Those are the type of pictures I seem to get of my kids... lots of wiggling...and some crying. You'd think pictures were some sort of torture for kids.
The camping looks like so much fun!

All the pictures are great. I can't believe Isaac is old enough for pre-school. He looks so grown up. the trip looked like so much fun. you were brave to take the camper.
