Labor Day Camping

Ev means business.
We decided that since we were already going to be up in Heber for the Swiss Cheese Days festivities that we should stay a couple of nights camping in the beautiful mountains.
Sometimes I think the twins and Summy could be triplets. 
 Our friends, the Sullivans, and their adorable 4 girls joined us. Piper joined us too because he has been a little depressed since Phoenix ran away.
We spent most of our time playing around our campsite and the Sullivan's trailor. The weather was pretty decent and the kids all had a blast! As for the adults, we kept ourselves busy with Darin's "GRUESOME" jokes. ;)
Before we went home on Saturday, we stopped my the park to play....and get SOAKED!!!! The kids were filthy but they were having such a fun time we didn't stop them. 

Swiss Cheese Days

Every September,  in the hearth of Midway, people gather from the far reaches of the state of Utah to celebrate Swiss Days.....

......Well Swiss Days is for suckas! Swiss CHEESE Days is where it's at! Our imaginative pal Ben created this new holiday as a means to eat cheese, gather, eat cheese, listen to music, eat cheese, play games and eat cheese.   

Ben put a lot of work into this event and it showed! For the first game all participants were to throw a piece of Swiss cheese into the middle of the Swiss flag. Next up was the "Is it Velveeta?" game. We were blindfolded and given a cracker with either Velveeta or spray cheese. I think Ben was the only one who got it wrong. LOL It was an awesome night and we appreciate all the work put into it. Can't wait for next year's festivities!!! 
Sehen Sie sp├Ąter!
It was the perfect opportunity for Summer to wear her little Swiss dress from Grandma and Grandpa.
