McCall!!!! Day 1 and 2

Yes, we are back from vacation from McCall, ID. It's such a bittersweet ending because all of us look forward to this vacay ALL year. Expect alot of pics and recap. I, unfortunately, am an idiot and didn't get enough pics of the rest of my family because I assumed Emily got a ton with her awesome camera. So, I hope she sends me a ton for posterity's sake. DAY 1: I can't remember really doing anything particular on day one except unpacking and just playing with the fam. DAY 2: We went to church and some of us went on a really cool hike. Being pregnant on this trip was tricky but, I was able to do everything that I wanted to. I was able to do the hike and being nine months pregnant, I'm pretty proud of my efforts for the entire week! This hike was fun. It lead to a waterfall that seriously opened up to an amazon-like scene. Dean, of course, climbed to the bottom and decided to swim against the waterfall. Poor Lukey was carried down with him. Dean did tell us later that there was an undertoe. Good thing he left Luke on the bank!If you look closely you can see Dean and my cousin, Trenton. London walked almost the whole way and had to do everything by herself. We had to bribe her to hold hands with someone. Luke fell dead asleep on top of my dad's shoulders. I have no idea how this is possible. He was seriously a bobble-head. London was crazy all week with being with her cousins. They wore her out everyday. Overall it was a fun hike and I was glad I didn't have to sit around with my feet up. Fortunately, my doc allowed me to go on vacay regardless of my term! And....we HAD to have a family picture of most of the people who were on vacation. I think that because Tyler ended up carrying London the last little bit of the hike, he was pretty tired. I couldn't find either of them when we got back. I finally looked in our bedroom and I found a peaceful scene. They had already moved by the time I had taken the picture. They were cuddling so sweetly before. I just love my sweet little family.
