We went to our Ward Camp Out at Sharp Creek. The crappy thing about living here, if you want to go to the mountains to camp, you have to drive like 2 hours. Oh well, the temperature is cooler there. I actually slept in a tent, and I was reminded of why I don't like to. Even though we had an air mattress, it got so cold in the night that it went flat and we were freezing because the kids slept on the sleeping bags for their beds. They were nice and comfy, Ben and I not so much. Next time, if there ever is one, they can sleep on the ground. Just kidding, I'm not that mean!
Carter also is obsessed with the IPOD and I'm grateful they exist!
It's come in handy lately.
Pretty much all the odd and crazy pics of Carter are things he does himself. Here's a few examples:
He likes to climb into the dryer or stick toys and what not in it.
Yeah, I'm not lying about this one. He thinks he can use a computer. Occasionally I'll find him trying to use the mouse, this time he added the headphones. He is so gay!
This one is at Peter Piper Pizza. He was out of control climbing on all the games/toys.

You Are Ariel!
Headstrong and fiesty. You have a mind of your own that's full of romantic dreams about the world around you. Exploring exotic places is your ultimate dream, and although you can be a little naive you'll realize that there is something to be gained from your family's wisdom.
Which Disney Princess Are You?

This is how Carter was sleeping that night we got there. He wasn't tired or anything!
Here is Carter and "Nanath"(is what Carter calls him) playing in the backyard. Now that they're finally old enough to play with each other, we have to live in another state:(
I spent the week just hanging out and going through the rest of the crap I left. On Wednesday we had a Girl's Night Out. We saw the new Sister Missionary movie, Errand of Angels. It was a cute Mormon movie. Then we ate at Spaghetti Mama's. Yummy food!
On Friday, Ben flew out. I was glad not to have to drive home alone. We celebrated my Grandma Skousen's 90th Birthday that night. Ben got to meet some more of my extended Skousen family. There's only about a million of us!
On Saturday, thanks to BIL, Sam, we got to go to the BYU game. Melissa and I learned that it is basically impossible to bring kids to a game. I didn't even know that Iowa had scored and that the quarterback was injured and the game was stalled for about 5 minutes. We were so distracted. But it was still fun. I haven't been to a game in 2 years!
We spent some time with Ben's family on Sunday. It was good to see them as well. We got a disc of wedding pics from Ben's dad. The first I've seen other than the 5 on the internet!
We drove home on Labor Day. It was about 60 degrees and raining when we left at 10:30. We got home around 9PM and it was 95 degrees. I'll miss the Fall weather! But in December, ask me again how much I like AZ weather!
Our cute little cabin we stayed in.
On the way there, Carter got into the snack bag and pulled out the raisins. I didn't know it until I turned around saw him eating them. This is his pose!
Carter playing in the fountain at the temple.
Carter trying to get all the way in the water. Notice Ben's face. He is so over-protective. Hey, if he gets in it, he's the one wearing the wet clothes!
