Dion and Ada also came up for the experience, although Dion has determined that he would much rather camp over by Enterprise, in the heat, than on top of Cedar Mountain, in the cool. In this picture Dion is going for his best James Dean look, to bad tailEnd found his way into the picture.
Ada had a blast with Emery, as you can see. She would have danced with her all night if Emery's mom and dad would have let her.
And here is Emery's mom and dad, Amanda and Johnny. They are Dion and Ada's friends who came to join us on our camping trip. They brought S'More's!, which we were all thankful for, even Ada, who had never had one before and decided that they were just a little bit to sweet. Fun was had by all burning the marshmallows and eating the crispy remains.
I could have gotten some better pictures but I was always busy cooking or just sitting enjoying the peace and quiet or just taking a walk or just riding the 4wheelers and forgetting that yes Rae you do have a camera now. TailEnd also had a blast. And was so excited because he can now ride the 4wheelers by himself without getting into trouble after he took his OHV training course. Let's all join in his little celebration and dance a jig with him. Emery and Ada thought it was fun and exciting, too.
Over all we had a blast and midMan and I would love to go again this weekend, but alas, life interrupts us and makes us take care of all that other mundane stuff like the yard, and the house, and the bills, and the garden, and the kids, and everything else that life likes to throw in our way.
Love To All,
My vote........global warming & your guess is as good as mine.
Love to all,

YEAH!!!!!!! I have been waiting, like forever, to go camping this year. We are busting a gut to get going and enjoy the peace and quiet. We have actually been so busy with preparations I have failed in my responsibilities to post a blog. So do not despair, I will have lots of photos and such to post when I get back. I hope every one has a great and wonderful weekend. We love you all and hope to get no snow. And yes it did snow on the mountain last Saturday evening, June 6th. I will post the pictures next week.
Love To All,

After my last post I decided you all might like a little more of cute Haygen. This little boy will be 3 years old in one week and is the light of his mom and dad's life. He may be a total terror but he can turn around and be the sweetest little boy in the world. He has his Grandma and Grandpa Munk wrapped around his little finger and he will never let them go. He has also been able to gain control of his older brothers and sisters.

Life soon injected itself into their world and things had to change. MidMan and I moved to Cedar City, Utah and Jeff moved to Salina, Utah with his wife Lesty. The move for each of our families was a good move, for us it was having midMan home more and for Jeff it meant being closer to his kids from his first marriage. It was a sad day for all but has turned out for the best. MidMan and I are now each others best friends and Jeff gets to see his kids a whole lot more. When all of the changes and moves happened it was a sad day for our kids. They have all grown up together and would spend every weekend together, doing any number of outrageous things, including coming home completely covered in mud. I can remember tailEnd asking for a picture with his cousins because he was afraid he would forget what they looked like. I know.......Heartbreaking.
So joy is had by all when they get to spend time together. All of our youngest ones still enjoy playing together, even tailEnd at the ripe old age of 14. His cousins Mandi, who will be 14 in July, and Kenyan, who will be 12 this month also had a blast. As you can see the most fun was had while digging in the sand box. I guess our kids could care less what others think when they are together, away from all of the pressure put on them by friends.
Even more joy has been added when Haygen, Mandi and Kenyan's little brother, is added to the mix. Haygen is Jeff's 3 year old son from his current marriage. We all spoil him rotten and he is so mean but we all love him so much. He is one of the cutest kids in the world. But he is a total terror in the store if he doesn't get a toy. And we are all still trying to figure out what resign means. He cried and cried for hours, after his nightmare, that daddy resigned his pants. Any ideas? But as you can see he can hold his own.
Now we have even more fun when we can add Waydon to the mix. Waydon is Jeff's oldest son from his first marriage and Haygen thinks he is the BOMB!!! Life is so much funner when you have a 6'3" big brother to tote you around.
Fun is definitely always had when you put the cousins together. They can find wonderful things to do. It can range from digging in the sandbox to finding old bottles to start their collections. It's even more fun when it rains all weekend and all the parents are hollering because they drug mud into the house. All weekend sleep overs, rain, sand, bottles, and love. It's all you need for the perfect time to get to know each other again. Although it's seems like they haven't been apart at all, they just picked up where they left off.
Love To All,
Things To Remember.......................I can remember going bow hunting with the guys when tailEnd and Mandi were two years old. Here we are in the mountains with little kids, 7 to be exact, for a week. The older kids did pretty good about staying relatively clean while the 2 two year old's decided to play in the mud. Oh my gosh, they were so dirty. So we did the only thing we could....we stripped them down, stood them of the tailgate of the truck, and bathed them. For sure they did not like this but there was no way I was going to sleep with a muddy two year old. The next day we went down to town and payed $5 to take a shower. Oh what heavenly bliss. Now we are smarter and have a trailer with a shower. It's even better.
