Springer Reunion

Last weekend was the Springer Reunion. We had been working on our trailer every weekend for the last year trying to have it ready and we finally finished it the weekend before the reunion. I did not take any "before" pictures because I do not want to remember what it looked like before but here is a picture of the finished product!

We were really nervous about our first camping trip in it and we were hoping that nothing would go wrong. As we started driving up Provo Canyon we heard a loud crash. We thought that one of the propane tanks fell off. Russ pulled over and I got out to see what happened.... THIS

The back storage door where you put your jacks and wood blocks fell off! After walking a mile down the side of the road dodging speeding cars I found the door smashed and crumpled up in the fast lane. I guess we will just have to make a new one! But the whole way there and the way home that was the worst thing that happened so I think we are pretty lucky:)

We finally got there and it was so nice to just be camping and away from everything and just hang out with everyone. Russell's Grandparents are so cute and I love talking to his Grandpa!

It rained almost the whole time were there!
And I guess Russ thought we were back in Hawaii??

We went shooting..

Russ watered the trees..

His Dad is so Proud of him!!

Does this picture remind you of King of the Hill??
Hmm.. Yep.. Uh Huh...Yep..

Do work Son!

So, Yesterday was June 3rd and No I did not drive a bus through the bank and this is why.. I have no patience therefore I could not wait until June 3rd to call someone at the bank. So about 3 days after my last post I called them and talked to the branch manager at the SLC branch She told me that we just needed to bring in some statements and before they could get the paperwork ready for closing we had to put a railing on the front and back porch.
(Do work Son!)

So I met My Dad at Metal Mart yesterday and we picked out all of the metal to build the railings and the guy that is living there will be out on July 5th! And that is when the construction begins...

I cant wait to start tearing down walls and painting! Its going to be ALOT of work, But it will be OUR own home so I am sure it wont be so bad!

ALSO.. Our camper is done! All of the weekends we have put in working on it have totally paid off. One more coat of paint on the outside and a good cleaning and she will be ready for the reunion!
