Labor Day

This year for Labor Day, we were actually around for the annual Asay picnic at Sheep Mountain. Some of our group went for a hike up to the top of the mountain when we first arrived. We enjoyed yummy hamburgers and polish dogs cooked over the fire and various other salads and good food. After lunch, the guys...and even grandma Asay, shot some guns and then the boys took the kids to look for fossils. They came back with their hands and pockets full of Devil's Toenails and fossilized squid parts (not sure what they are called). After lunch was done, we loaded back up and headed back to the house. As soon as we got back, we changed into our suites and loaded up the boat and headed to the lake to enjoy what might be one of our last trips to the lake for the year. The water was full of moss but was beautiful! The boys each tubed, Christian skiied, and we took a little ride up the canyon. After a day of play, it was time to head home and get dinner and kids ready for bed. We had a very enjoyable day together with family!

The boys must have both enjoyed the day...they both gave me thumbs up when I was taking their pictures! :)
