"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Fish Lake Utah (warning..ton of pictures)

Our family this past week had a family reunion at Fish Lake Utah. We stayed in little cabins. We had so much fun. This is the kids in front of our little cabin.

Driving the boat

Lance getting the poles ready

enjoying the boat

Trevor loved to touch the worms. They even liked to put their feet in the freezing cold water.

this is Elder Hall's (from our ward) family. His mom and Hollie. Elder Hall said his parents were gonna be at Fish Lake the same time we were so he told us how to find them and we did. They took us out on their boat and with them we caught all the fish. Thank you Hall family. We had soooo much fun.

Trevor loved to touch them.

Here is my BIG fish. One of Lance's many catches

trevor caught one and Hollie caught one.

Trevor loved to pull the rope up to make sure all the fish were still there.

Loving the boat ride. Lance had two at one time.

Final result. 15 fish all together.

Lance learned how to fillet the fish. Yuck!

First day fishing. The kids each got their very own pole.

Us at the lake

I got the award for catching the "BIGGEST" fish na na na na na na Lance. Lance got the award for catching the "MOST" Fish
