Our Labor day weekend, we went camping at camp Na-bor-lee (where we go to girls camp) with our friends the Skimore's (Shannan and Allen), the Clark's (Kim and Brett), the Fry's (Delphia and Cary), the Nicolay's (Angie and Joseph) and the Spear's (Jon and Michelle).  We had lots of fun boating, eating, visiting, and playing games.  We did lots of wake boarding, wake surfing, skiing, knee boarding, ski skimming, and tubing.  We played beach volleyball and whiffle ball.  The kids loved swimming in the lake and playing in the sand.

One of the kids favorite thing about camping is night games.  They love to play kick the can, hide and go seek, gray wolf, and more.  The also loved playing frisbee with the glow in the dark frisbee.

On Sunday, we went for a boat ride and hiked to a little waterfall.  It was a pretty steep climb and Tanner fell off the side as we were walking down.  I was a ways behind him and I walk around a curve and see some people pulling him up the side of the hill.  He was fine.  Just a little scratched up.  The kids favorite part of the hike were the little frogs that were on the beach.

Spear family reunion

 Group cannon ball

 Volleyball in Grammy's park (aka backyard)

 On your mark, get set, go!  Race to the lake.
 What would a reunion be without food.  We were definitely well fed.
 We watched Mirror, Mirror with the help of Pompa's wonderful LCD projector.

All of the Spear family got together the 3rd week of August.  We had a swimming birthday party for Nixon at our house.  We also went camping at Lake Roosevelt at Camp Na-bor-lee.  Fun was had by all.
