Desert Picnic

Growing up we often did picnics in the desert. For our family we LOVED these picnics, they are no small business. We find a spot out in the desert with a field, takes some searching but recently we've found the perfect spot we'll hopefully keep for a while. My Gramps, who is one tough dude, made a mean meal of fried chicken, biscuits, potatoes, and pineapple upside down cake in DUTCH OVENS!! The meal was absolutely to die for, and of course we ate way to much!

Tatum looking pink and cute. And little miss thang, Leah, also made an appearance.














As per our picnic tradition we played soft ball. Tuck was thrilled! He hit well until...

He hit a fowl ball that hit him in the head. He was very upset about the whole thing and was then finished playing ball for the rest of the afternoon. Later that night I asked him if he had a fun time in the desert. He, with much anger in his voice, said no he did not! That nobody said sorry for hitting him in the head! I burst out laughing while trying to explain that HE hit himself in the head so HE needs to say sorry. He didn't get it, he's a grudge holder.


















This year we mixed up the activities a little and included red rover. It was fun, it might become another desert picnic tradition. Those are some of my cute cousins, with the exception of my Auntie Kim in the gray shirt.








It's always so exciting when you get your name called! Time to show off your skills and strategery. Tuck thought he was pretty cool!






Even Auntie Kim was excited! Look at her face, she's determined!!









Fun was had by all! It was a lovely spring afternoon!

That looks like a blast! And I love the trampoline jumping! It has been so nice in Utah the past week and although undoubtedly we will still have cold weather before the summer, I cannot wait to for this weather to stick around and allow us to get outside more and more! And can I be adopted so that I can taste some of that yummy food? I LOVE dutch oven cooking!

AHHH! Don't post this stuff! It makes me way too homesick and long for the olden days. I wish I could have been there. Papa does have some mad dutch oven skills! =) We keep missing each other on the tellie. Can't wait to talk to you!

Heidi! Don't worry...when we saw you at Red Robin, my husband turned to me and said, "Don't you know her?" It took me a second before I realized who you were. I wasn't sure if you would know me since we've never "officially" met but I'm sure we will have the opportunity in the future!
