The day in Panguitch

We had a really fun day yesterday on a great Ranger ride. (Have I mentioned here that Cory recently bought a new Ranger? I'll need to post some pictures of it soon....) We went up to Panguitch and rode to Peterson Point - about a 3 hour ride. It was fun to see new rock formations, some great GREEN rocks, and just fun scenery!

The whole thing was great until the last 20 minutes when it started to rain. No - I take that back - it started to POUR. The poor boys were drenched, we could barely see the trail, and I felt so bad for the kids! We ended up stopping at a house that was under construction and I waited in the (unfinished) garage with the boys while Cory went and got the car. (Thanks to the family who let us crash there!) The boys were asleep when the rain got bad and poor Gabe woke up saying, "Mommy - the rain is slapping my face!" But they both handled it really well for the circumstances.

Afterwards we had fun getting together with some friends up in Panguitch, ate dinner, and headed home. It was just a fun day - even with the rain. When we were driving home I said, "So - who had fun today?" Gabe and Cory yelled out "ME! ME!" and then Hunter cried out "YAY!" It was the cutest response, and really just felt like we had all had a great time.

And this layout is of my fancy new shirt from the day :)

I'm sorry, but I had to laugh at this one. I'm not so sure I would have been so calm about the down pour! Slapping my face! That's a good one! LOL

I just love family outings! They are the best no matter if it rains or shines. Tell Gabe that Grandma got hit with rain today on her visits and decided that maybe I need to stick a little poncho in my glove compartment. What do you think!
Love, Tammy

That's a pretty classy shirt all right. :) It looks like you had a fun time despite the rain and the spilled Dr. Pepper. I really like the kit you used on this layout. I wish that I had Photoshop or some program that would make digital scrapping possible. Although what I really wish is that I could get my act together to just do some old-fashioned paper scrapping. Ugh! I really need to get my class stuff done so that I can play.

Love, Mom
