Big Lake

This year for the annual Johnson family vacation we went to Big Lake.

Why have I never been there before? It is beautiful!

I've learned this summer that camping is very relaxing, the getting ready to go part is not that relaxing and a lot of work, but once you are there...Ahhhhhh.

I don't worry about crumbs on the floor, my kids actually get to play with playdoh and moon sand, I get to read, and there is no time table to follow.

And my sweet little newborn slept excellent, I was one happy Mama.

So even though camping is not my favorite thing to do, after this summer, I'm warming up to it.

What a WoNderful world we live in

Now that's what I call relaxing, she slept for an hour and a half.

Thanks for a fun vacation Johnson Clan!

Two Months...

Our little girl is growing. She is sleeping 7 to 9 hours at night, eating like a champ, growing like a weed, in size one diapers, been camping twice (5 days each time), got rid of that yucky baby acne, and her smile...

Happy Birthday Daddy-O

The kiddos really love sending Birthday Messages to their Grandpa Cucui in heaven

A tradition I hope we always have

We Love You Grandpa Cucui

Larson Reunion

Every year for as long as I can remember the Larson family reunion was in Cloudcroft, NM. Because of some medical reasons of one of our extended family members we haven't been able to go to Cloudcroft for 4 or 5 years, we went to Verden, NM; lower altitude. Oh, how I missed the mountainous family reunion with the rain, cool weather and traditions of when I was young. This year we were able to return to our roots in the mountains of Cloudcroft. I was so excited to take the kiddos to the place I grew up going every year.

Some of my favorite memories: dirty kid faces, fishing, eating the fish, Brock eating the fish he caught, Brody's face when he caught his own fish, Embry's face seeing a fish up close and personal for the first time, relaxing in the trees, playdoh playing, finger painting, waterfall, Kenley dancing in the waterfall, the beautiful weather, baths in the kitchen sink, marble tourney, cards, talent show, dinner in the pavilion, going into town, taking old fashion photos, ice cream in town, family gathering at the church spot, dirt in my nails, showering with the daddy long leg spiders, late night chats, laughing until I wanted to burst and so much more. We had a blast!

Here are some of my favorite moments of Cloudcroft, NM 2009
(way too many pictures coming)

Can't wait until next year!
