Price River 2009We spent July 24th up at the Brown’s property agian this year. We thought it would be fun to take the kids tubing down the Price river. We rounded up all the tubes we could find at home and headed up. The kids of course thought this was a blast, well all but Kenzie who was with Russ and to worried about me to have any fun. She cried the whole way down the river. This trip was supposed to be nice and relaxing with little action, ha ha ha. I ended up riding with Natalie and between us we had 1 snow tube, 2 floatiung rafts and 1 noodle. That was a receipe for trouble. We started out alone and ended up together. She was a tropper. We were so sore after the ride, with all the musle tightening after going over the rapids on our bellies and leg hanging in the water. Our poor chins were cut and bruised and the whole time we had smiles on our faces asking ourselves who’s idea this was.

There were 15 of us total and we actually came out alive and laughing. Mike was lucky enough to catch a snake with his finger. Poor little guy thought Mike was an even match. LOL But he did grab onto his finger and was not about to let go.  I was the lucky one who caught the one and only fish thos day, I really wasn’t to excited about that,  there is nothing worse than catching a fish between you chest and chin and have it flop around your face. Poor Natalie, I think I ruptured her ears with my screaming. I sure wish I had my camera with me down the river to catch some of these moments. Looks like I should invest in a water camera for the next go around.

Colten, Kenzie and Chase at the RuinsWe made a day trip this July up to the Ruins in Forgotten Canyon at Lake Powell. The hike was a hot one! Kenzie was not happy about being there and was not in the mood to hike up the mountain in the heat. So, i was the lucky one who got to carry her all the way to the top.The boys on the pther hand, run up the mountain like little moutain goats. Colten could come here every visit to Lake Powell, it is one of his favorite places to see.

Kenzie was fun this time up here, she really liked it. She made me nervous always wanting to look over the edge and watch the boats below. She was “watchin for her daddy” which was WAY down there hiding in the trees with the boat. She was fun to watch go inside the ruins and at kenzie in the Ruinsone point told me she was staying in the house. There was a guy there who got a kick out of it. He told me that the rent was cheap and that I should take her up on it, there is no mortage.

It was fun to have all the cousins – or those who were with us- enjoy this trip together. They all got along really well.  I am sure more fun times will come in the future!The Cousins
