Take your kid to work day & Father & son camp out

I know I am way beyond behind but, whatever! So, Seth got to go with Paul to take your kid to work day & he loved every minute of it. We met for lunch and I took him home so Paul could actually get some work done. Seth was so upset. I should have told him ahead of time that he only got to go for half of the day. He frequently asks to go to work with Paul so when we told him he could go he had the biggest grin. I loved the look on his face when they pulled away in Paul's truck. One of the technicians took him for a ride on the fork lift which he of course thought was awesome. Then, he got to check out some of the other big machines in the yard. He brought home a TON of earplugs. He had an amazing time.

The next fun adventure was the Father & son camp out. This was the first year that Paul & Seth went to the camp out. They had a blast and Seth is constantly asking to go camping again. The night they got up there they had dinner and a bonfire and Seth played with friends and ran around the campsite. Paul texted me at 10 pm to let me know that he was not asleep yet. He was so excited to be sleeping in a tent and the air mattress and the flashlights, he could not relax and fall asleep. I think he finally fell asleep around 11. The next morning Paul had to wake him up early because the Elder's quorum presidency was making breakfast and the campfire was to far away from the tent to leave him there. Paul woke him up and Seth said it's time to go.... before he could finish his sentence with make breakfast, Seth started crying saying I don't want to go!!! Paul finally got him calmed down and explained they were just going to make breakfast. After breakfast they went to this cool place called Rock City. It is a bunch of huge boulders that you can climb all over and into. Needless to say he was in heaven and had a blast! I know it is going to be a fun tradition he looks forward to. I am so behind I haven't even downloaded the pictures yet. I will add them soon.

I ran into your mom at Cafe Rio last night, and she told me you're going to be in town next week...but I'm leaving! Jenna is getting married in SLC, so we're going to Utah tomorrow. I'm so sorry we're going to miss you, I was thinking and wondering about you guys 2 or 3 days ago and then there was your mom. We miss you. I'll call you if we get back in time, when are you leaving?

Laura! Hey! Your kids are sooo cute! Your daughter looks just like you! I am so glad I found your blog. It sure beats seeing you every five years and hearing how your doing through your mom. Liz (Mohler)

I loved the report of his day with Dad at the office and their camp out trip - also the pictures you posted. Don't worry about being so behind - I am farther behind than you. But love to check the postings of all the kids. Love you and miss you.
