Kings Canyon

Two days after we got back from Bear Lake we packed up and headed for Kings Canyon. Its a 14 hour drive and we were so tired by the time we got there, but the scenery and company is totally worth it!!

Parker, Ela and Nixon playing at the river. We thing the love connections between Parker and Ela is so sweet. Ela has a little sister for Nixon, but she is only 6 months old so next year he will have a play mate too!!

Our home for the week. I love our tent its so roomy. We have three big mats we lay out in the back and have one giant sleepover all week long. We place the boys in the middle and Nathan and I each get a side just so we can each take care of one if they wake up in the night.
This is the part of the river we camp by, we take the boys here during the day to cool off!
Nathan is really proud of his fire here.
Who doesn't love a nap in the Hammock.
Parker jumping off the little rock in the river, He was nervous and only did it once, but we were proud of him for doing it once.
Nixon on his motorcycle.

Our family!!! This picture was taken after driving 14 hours in a car-then sleeping in that same car for 3 hours before the sun came up.
