A Trip to Strawberry

Monday and Tuesday we went to Strawberry Reservoir with Trent's family. It was my kind of camping since we stayed in cabins that were bigger than my house. We took our horses and Trent's parents brought four-wheelers and when we were riding those we just played games with the cousins. It was a lot of fun.

JayLee went fishing with Jenna and Kevin and she loved it. I was gone on a horse ride when they left Monday night and she fell asleep before they got back. On Tuesday morning she woke me up telling me all about her fishing trip. She also had fun with Tren't cousin Seth (who she calls Steve now because once she got home she couldn't remember his name, sorry Seth!) She had to eat dinner next to him on Tuesday night and she said the funnest thing she did was ride the bike in the house, which was another thanks to Seth. Tren'ts cousins are almost all teenagers but they were all so good to her.

I wish I would have taken more pictures but I didn't. This one is on the way home. JayLee fell asleep and this is Olin pulling her hair and thinking it is really funny. You should have heard him squealing about it.

Trent and I got to go on a couple of horse rides and that was all thanks to Trent's mom and Jenna. They always had my kids. I'm so grateful for them. Alese and Ryan went riding with us Monday night and it was so fun. They really need to move out to the Basin so we can do more stuff together.

This is Trent's horse Harley. She acted so good up there and is definitely a brush busting horse. I couldn't believe some of the stuff she would go through. JayLee didn't get to ride because her horse was so hyper once we got there I was too chicken to put her on. She asked Trent when we were loading her in the trailer to go home, "Dad, why did we even bring my horse?" What will we do with sassy JayLee? But Ryan rode her and as long as she was in the front she didn't look like a parade horse.

It was a fun couple of days and a great time to be with family.

Yeah that is Harley. She is a nice looking mare. Pennie and I want to plan a gathering maybe we could plan a horse ride while were at it.
