aunt terry, uncle ed and the nelsons visit for the day!

My Aunt Terry and Uncle Ed drove up to Crouch with my cousin Lindsay and her family on the last day in Idaho. We did some of our Crouch favorites, the minnow pond and a pinata. Aunt Jeanne even planned a kid-friendly geocashing activity, how cool is that?

First we put on bathing suits and went to the minnow pond. It was too hot to not be in the water.

After the minnow pond and Simon's minor snake bite, we headed back up to the cabin. Sage went down for a nap and the big kids did some geocashing and then broke the traditional pinata. Grandma Jones used to make pinatas when we were little that took metal baseball bats to break, and everyone got multiple turns.

Now, this year's pinata was unlike any other pinata we've ever broken. My cousin Chelsea found this pinata of a life-size girl to break. She was called "Suzie" for most of the week, except by my mom why kept referring to "her" as "Annie The Tranny". Welcome to the Jones family. We're a one-of-a-kind group.

The time had come for Suzie to meet her maker, and it was a pretty long and drawn-out experience. Girlfriend was a fighter and stronger than she looked, but after all kids got three turns she finally gave in. It really brought out the Lord of the Flies side of our little angels.

My all-time favorite picture of Phoebs.

Using the limbs and the head as candy holders ^^

We're so glad that we got to spend the day with some of our favorite people!!!
We can't wait to come visit you in Utah in October!
