Fourth of July weekend we went to Utah to visit the Nicolay clan, we'll most of them. While we were there we did a lot of adventures. One was hiking Mnt. Timpanogos, the boys took turns pushing their lovely mom up the hill. The view was beautiful the whole hike up. Afterwards, we had a bon fire up the canyon. Here is also a picture of Remington, our newphew. Remington looks like Joseph when he was his age. We just seemed to love him to peices as we anticpiate having a little Joe or Angie running around our house.
The Stoker Family is growing we are over 100 strong now, with all the grandkids and great grandkids. We spent a three day weekend up in Seattle, Wa at a church camp called Zion's camp. It was a lot of fun. We slept in a 4 big cabin's. We each got our very own bunk bed. The weekend was full of games, food, candy, cool toys for the kids, a family fireside and story telling, movies, board games, laughs, music, and dancing. Joseph and I were chosen to be in the family play, it was a reenactment of Paul Stoker's family when they went to Disney Land and made a video about Star Trek. We were aliens... Another picture is Joseph in his moments of solitude. You were able to fish for free and keep one fish. Since it's church owned they get to regulate the fishing. Another picture is of all the kids playing with water noodles. They had a blast with those. The older men called the little kids 7 and under "immortals" because they would charge at them in full strength with no worry of being hurt and they would get just clobber the older men. Another photo is the family jam session. Mike's girl sang a song and we all got to take turns trying out to be her back up dancers, that was really funny to watch.
