Our Summer Vacation.....

Happy 4th!

Love this picture!

Uncle Jakey

These were Emmy's best friends in Utah - Grandma and Jane

Cousins getting ready to go into the cave at Bear Lake

1st annual Sorensen Bear Lake reunion!!

This was a first time reunion that I hope will continue cause it was soooo much fun!

I've got a lot more water pictures from that if we could just get pictures off of our camera, so hopefully we'll have a sequel from this Bear lake trip too).

Emmy totally contemplating how to eat her marshmallow

then figures she is already so dirty how much more of a mess could a marshmallow make?
All 9 of us
(ok, except that we haven't photoshoped Justin in for Derek and Jodi in for Jenn yet)

Love the blue eyes.

Half of our trip to Utah was spent camping. Our first camping trip was near Orderville where my Grandpa's family owns a lot of land. We had so much fun exploring caves, 4 wheeling, learning more about our family history, treasure hunts, talking story, and just playing. It is always so much fun to see all my cousins and aunts and uncles since those reunions seem less frequent these days.

me and my sisters (we miss you Jodi)

Emmy and her cousin Jane were so cute, I'm surprised they weren't holding hands in this picture since that is what they loved to do.
Maryland was absolutely gorgeous!!! look all around us is green. I don't know if it was just cause we've been so deprived of color down here in AZ but seriously I found that everywhere I looked took my breath away with all the huge trees and grass covering every inch of the ground unless there was a lake or something. I loved Maryland and Ohio! (well except for the fact that the humidity left me a sweaty mess). I can't get pictures off our other camera that has most our Ohio/Maryland trip on it, so there will be a sequel to this post with those pictures.
