A couple of weeks ago, we headed up the canyon to see the Salmon Run.
In all the time I have lived here we have never gone so when Rex and Dessa suggested it,
we jumped at the chance.
It was pretty neat.
If I waned philosophical, I'm sure I could tie the experience of the fish
to some important meaning of life but that may just be too deep for here. :)
Let's just say it was inspirational to see how the fish
"Just kept swimming"
Corbin liked throwing twigs and leaves into the water up stream and follow it down.
I drew a line when he wanted to throw rocks.
Those fish were going through enough!
Makayla was happy to spend time with Dessa.
We had to get a few family shots...thanks to Whitney!
And a sunset shot on the way out...so beautiful!
To be inspired yourself, see the video of the fish swimming up stream.
They don't seem to go anywhere but they just keep going.
There is something to be said about that.

Corbin had another successful season of soccer with Ryan as his coach.
This year he played on the big field with actual positions.
He was a defender and he liked to "boot it".
It wasn't until the season was almost over that he asked me, "What does boot it mean?"
I guess he likes to kick it really hard.

The local high school was sponsoring a mini drill team camp and, of course,
Makayla wanted to attend with all of her friends.
They practiced for two nights and then performed at the football game.
It was kind of a fundraising racket.
We paid for her to participate and then we paid to get in the game to watch the half-time show.
The things were do for our kids.
Still, she loved every minute of it.
Sorry about the shaking filming...I was having a hard time finding her and I was joggled by the crowd. At least that is my story and I'm sticking with it.
Makayla is in the middle. Can you spot her?
Love her additional poses at the end.
The girl has sass. :)

Makayla got her doll family all dressed up and posed them in front of our picture of the temple.
She then asked if she could use the camera to take some pretend pictures.
Maybe she is a budding family photographer. ;)

As per tradition, the kids participated again in their school's annual fundraiser.
Last year it was rainy so it was held inside. This year it was hot so the kids about died.
It gives them a good "war" story though.
Makayla's group was before Corbin's. She walked some of the time but always kicked it into gear when she ran past us. Funny girl!
Corbin was hot off the line when it started.
He wanted to be the very first one. That kid is so competitive!
All the other kids were in his dust. :)
He paid the price though and had shin splints for the next few days.
In the end, Makayla got 22 laps and Corbin got 28.
We are very proud of their efforts!
Plus, the school earned enough to put their principal in a dunking booth.
