You're Bella Swan - You are intelligent and kind but not quite sure what you want out of life yet. You have a feeling there's something more out there for you. You're attracted to those who are real and avoid the fake. Sometimes you're a bit accident prone, but your true friends will always be loyal to you and come to your aid when you need it.

Luke is watching Dean trying to blow bubbles with the water wienie.
Remember how I said that Alex, Austin and Bryce were trying to climb the rope swing? Well, they sort of made it....
Apparently Doane thought he needed more than one water wienie, so he stole one, and triumphantly shows two of them off, before taking a plunge in the water....
Here Austin and Bryce drip-dry, while Alex takes a running leap off the diving board.....
Adrift on the raft, Doane finally sees land, and Patrick sees me....is it time to go home yet?

Think they're tired of being in the van yet?
Even Lucy had about had it, and wanted to escape her cage. This is what she does when she wants to get out, and it was pretty funny the first time I saw it. She can't quite squeeze out all the way, so just her head pokes up.
Next we move on to our first night in Utah, which you saw some of those pictures if you looked at Dean's birthday post.
This is a line-up of some of the cousins, from shortest to tallest (almost). A couple are out of order, and the funny thing is, one of the smaller ones in the middle (next to Patrick) is older than Patrick by 2 years!
This is Dean's cousin opening presents, and they graciously shared the party with us that night.
And after the party, we HAVE to have a big family meal, since most of Doane's siblings, and his mom, were there!
And here we have some LOVELY pictures of our home in Cedar, that we are currently renting out. Don't ya just love our front yard? The grass is thriving, there's no weeds, and it looks great! and the view of our neighbor's trashy yard next to our weedy side yard would make any potential buyer salivate with the wonderful neighborhood they would be buying into!

Little Meliah and her sister Maiclinn are working hard on their creations now, as is Jacob. Becca is just keeping a close eye on her girls, for safety's sake....
Here's a close-up of some of the marshmallow creations, and the best part is, you can EAT most of what you make!
|What Rebekah Means|
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
You are full of energy. You are spirited and boisterous.
You are bold and daring. You are willing to do some pretty outrageous things.
Your high energy sometimes gets you in trouble. You can have a pretty bad temper at times.
You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.
You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.
People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.
You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

And I end with Dean wrapped up in a towel, enjoying a drink and being hand-fed by Doane....
