Hiatt Family Reunion 2010

Still playing catch up but wanted to post how blessed I am to have an amazing family.  After all when, you get rid of all the fluff that is not important you realize all you have that matters is family.  We had a great time and love spending time in Pine.  There truly is a different spirit in Pine and is sacred to our family.  Im proud to be a Hiatt!  Thanks Ruth and Rudge for loving us and continuing on with tradition.  I am blessed to be a grandaughter of theirs.

Our Pinetop Repreive

We were fortunate to beat the heat in Pinetop for a week with the Pisciotta's. We fished, bowled, watched movies, played cards, ate and had a great week. The Lamb Fam happened to be up there also so we were able to enjoy their company to. We celebrated Jackson's Bday with him up there at Native and then DQ for dessert. We ended up missing his baptism on Saturday but at least we had fun on his Bday! Eric doctoring B's toe that she cut while on one of our multiple fishing outings.

I could not believe how brave Angie was when it came to these mammoth size worms. They grossed me out so for the most part she pretty much took care of the kids fishing bait for me.

Best Friends
Ethan caught a crawdad and I think that may have been the extent of what was caught between all of us. I have no idea how to fish but we sure enjoyed trying!

We sure missed Chad but had a lot of fun nonetheless. I am so thankful that Gma and Gpa Hiatt have their home up there. Pinetop is a place that I love and I am so thankful that my kids also love to spend time up there. Its a little slice of Heaven and especially when it 110 degrees here at home and about 80 for the high there. We had a great week with friends and really enjoyed relaxing. Thanks Ang for the invite and the awesome week. We love you and need to do it more often.

The Dog Days of Summer- Cutchen Style

As the summer is almost to its end this is one of the only reasons I will miss the heat. I cherish our lazy days as an entire family by the pool. Dad must have been in the flexing mood that day. I had to post this pic. Hair cuts on the back porch and poor Tyson was wiped out. There was the biggest puddle of drool on Staci's arm:)
One fine looking lady joins our party from time to time.Dads hair cut pre cut. The kids sure got a kick out of it.

Lake Powell 2010

Wayne trying to steal my job:)Note: Bishop in the bottom left corner also trying to put me out of business. I am a horrible contribution to the meals on our trip. I try to make up for it by cleaning as best I can. It gives me a feeling of worth on the Tuscan Vista!!! This post is no particular order since I don't think this blog is very friendly!Tate was love struck by Jessica's friend Aubrey who was a doll. He was to embarrassed to do his talent. Or maybe just to tired by the looks of his face.The Larson Family showing us all the talent one family can have. Really they are a very talented family. Ivy danced around quite well with her crutches that were due to an accident that was had on the jet ski's.This may have been one of the funnier moments of my life. The Lamb skit was thought out practiced and perfected. It was perfect for occasion.Ivy and Nick. Don't they look like they could be on High School Musical:)I think this may be the only pic of Chad and I together since I am always the one taking pictures. Also my camera decided to not work for half of the trip so I didn't take a ton of pictures. I need to get together with Chea since I am certain she will have captured some amazing pics.

Tate is always game to try anything. That surfing thing is not as easy as it seems. I stunk at it, but had fun attempting.This was our final lake trip with Nick before he left for his mission. On Thurs night I had not slept all night and spent most of the night on the top of the boat. It was amazingly peaceful, the moon was full and we were in this canyon that was illuminated from the moon. What a sight, I'm a sucker for the full moon anyhow. I watched and listened to fish jump for hours. I sat and pontificated how anyone can not believe in God. Its not just by chance places like LP exist. Anyhow once the sun came up I went and tried to wake Nick and Josh up. I was done just staring at the glass for water. They whined and moaned for a long time and told me to go back to bed. I kept at it and 30 min later we were on the lake:) I'm glad we did because that turned out to be the last chance to wake board of the trip. The boat started having some troubles.
B popped right up and seemed to be getting more and more comfortable.
Tate got up and hung on for dear life.
The Hosts with the Most

Once again our family was fortunate enough to be invited by the Larson's to share a week at LP with the Lambs also. I cant even do justice to what Heaven LP is to me. I enjoy every element of the place and love to take part in the fun. We hiked Hole in the Rock again. I had a new perspective after reading the Undaunted. It meant more than it had in the past. I taught my kids about those pioneers who paved the way down the steep hill in wagons, nearly impossible. They seemed to want to take part in the hike a little more after they knew the story behind it. I'm thankful to have LP memories forever imprinted in my mind, and for such great people I have the pleasure of being friends with!
