Templeman Camping Trip


We had a really fun time on the Templeman Family Camping Trip... so much fun that we forgot to take a group picture. Oh well. The trip involved Mom & Dad, Kelly & kids, Jenny & kids, me & family, Shannon, Devon, & Uncle Matt.

Brennan and his cousin Justin loved to cover themselves (and everyone else) in the dirt.


The campground was situated on the beautiful Burney Falls in California and next to Britton lake.

Brennan is NOT a water-kid, however with the influence of his swimming cousins he did venture into the water as far as his knees a few times. It was actually easier to watch Brennan at the lake than at the campsite... in the former he'd run all over the place, but at the latter he'd stay put throwing sand into the water.

We got back from Idaho a few days ago... had a really great time there. Brennan LOVED his uncles! He called both Greg and Adam "Uncle Greg" because for some reason he just could not remember Adam's name. Whenever they weren't around Brennan would call "Uncles, where are you?" He also loved seeing both his Grandmas and Grandpas Stevenson, and Aunt Shannon of course. Brennan loves family!

We kept him and ourselves busy with lots of activities, while also making sure to spend time just relaxing. After all, isn't that what vacations are for?

Besides going simply for a vacation, we also took the opportunity to announce to the Idaho family mem
bers that we're expecting our second child. We're very excited about it. I'm now almost 17 weeks along... due January 16, 2008. Pretty cool.


Brennan still loves to wrestle with big stuffed animals. In this case he also loves Winnie the Pooh, so he'd sing the theme song as he pinned the poor bear.

Notice Brennan's face... he thinks he's being so funny 'cause he was imitating Grandma and Mama sitting at the side of the playground.

Surprisingly, Brennan wasn't too scared to be in the petting area of the Idaho Falls Zoo.

Watch Brennan's reaction at the end when he touches the goat's horns.

Ahhhh, there's lions at this place!
Just thought this one was cute.

Brennan's too distracted by the geysers to smile for the camera. He LOVED the geysers though. He'd spot every one of them from the car by their steam and proclaim "geyser!" and "hot!" over and over until spotting the next one.

Playing at a park at 8:30 in the morning on the way home. Yes, we'd been in the car long enough to need a break by that time.
