I want to be better....

I have come to the conclusion that I am a bad blogger. It's not that I don't have anything to blog about because I do....it's just the getting around to it part that has been difficult. I initially started blogging to keep our families up to date with the things we were doing here in Arizona. I also viewed it as a journal of sorts. I really enjoy it. Sadly I haven't made it a priority these last few months. It doesn't help that our computer has been at deaths door more than I want to talk about recently. It refuses to let us download photos anymore. It looks like we will be purchasing an external photo downloader thingy......after all, what's a post without a bunch of pictures, right!? :) I have really missed you, my blogging friends, and wouldn't be surprised to learn most of you have given up on me. I will do better. ;) Here are a few pictures that we took in Utah....there are so many more but they are on Makenzie's computer so I will see if I can use hers for another post! Sweet Ragan....as boy crazy as they come....she will certainly be the end of me. Beautiful Makenzie.......who misses her twin brother probably more than any of us, but doesn't say a word about it and supports him 100%.
This is Craig's mom. We were so glad she could come with us camping. She loves to camp and fish but some heath issues almost made it so she couldn't this year.
Craig's sister, Stacey. She is 15 months older than Craig and still refers to him as her "little brother". This is also the aunt that the kids go to if they ever need anything....she just can't say no to them! ;) .
Craig's other sister, Michelle and her son, Jeremy. We were so glad they could come with us, too! Even after all these years, I still can't figure out how Michelle can have such great hair up camping.....
This is Bryce, Stacey's youngest son. He was the best wood gatherer and the finest of entertainment this year!
Craig--doing what he loves most. We found this little river after Craig took us on a hike. He assured us it was a flat, groomed trail. However, it was far from that. It's a good thing he knows CPR because I was THIS close to needing it on the way back!
I will be back with more very soon!

Hi JoAnn,
Glad to see your back, I think we all get in a slump once in a while"_

While I was in Annapolis I saw the sign that you made Michale and Corrie "It Is What It Is" they have it above the doors that go out to their patio!

Jo-Anne, I won't give up on you! I understand about blogging not always being the most important thing in our lives, nor should it ever get that way. Looks like you had a good time camping. My family, that is my brothers, wouldn't get along for 5 minutes and it would be horrendous. You are blessed. ~Ann

What a pretty place to camp. ya, my hair is always standing on end ...or flat.....when camping.

the girls are so beautiful and look so spunky...not to worry. we are the giving up kind. few bloggers have kept up this summer. it has been so busy--hectic, in fact. and I empathize with the computer woes. mine is just hanging on by a thread. look forward to better days, better reading, better writing......
