Matt's ideal world

When marrying Matt there were a few things foreign to me the hunting world and the camping world. Both of these are heaven to him. His ideal life would be on a secluded part of Alaska where no one would see him walk outside butt naked to do whatever you do. Well he married me, who loves the city and people and everything about it. The hustle and bustle of the world intrigues me. I'm a people watcher at their finest and enjoy being able to get anything quickly.
Well I'm slowly changing and vacation by vacation Matt might one day get his wish granted but until then he will have to take summer vacations that involve the wilderness.

While this was out in the middle of no where Matt was quite accommodating this camping trip and he reserved a spot near a bathroom and a lake. Do you remember last years 24th of July outing? The one with the sheep invading our camp? It was a blast and a trip I will never forget, but this one was a little bit cleaner!

Some of our most favorite people came, Gramps, Nana, Jake and Aunt Pete, joined us. (unfortunately I really didn't pull out the camera till the last day, so pictures are lacking).
The boys fished, we walked, talked, played lots of rummy, enjoyed being together and most of all Matt was the happiest I have seen him in a long time. HE LOVES THE WILDERNESS!!!

He really is the best Dad. These kids adore him!!!

This was for Lindsey. He was missing her. (So was I. I really really really like her!)

Saige's photog skills at their best

The last day we decided to pull out of camp and take the 4wheelers for a spin. This was Milo's favorite part and us girls had a good time posing.

Cute Grampsy!!!

Isn't Matt's mom cute? She had perfect hair the whole time and was brave enough to wear white camping! We love our Nana.

In case you were wondering what I look like as a motorcycle cop.....

And last but not least the impromptu headstands. Have I said it before how much our kids love Jake. He is one of their best friends. And is so good to always play with them. We love him!!

This last smile about sums up our trip. Everyone had a great time. We were sad pete had to leave early. Thank you Matt for planning a perfect trip and for everyone that came. Let's do it again next 24th!!

I still like the sheep stampede. Maybe that's because I was there with you.
I like seeing you all so happy! Yay for camping!

That looks fun. I love camping. My favorite part is the shower when I get home. :)

I wish David would honor this part of him more. The most content and whole I have EVER seen him was when we were in Alaska and he was taking in the frigid wilderness.
