Easter in the mud

Every year my family has a tradition of going to the desert to ride motorcycles & four wheelers the Friday and Saturday before Easter...every year we come home with a new story.
I will sum up this Easter story with a picture collage. Keep in mind as you're looking at this that I am not a fan of mud or all....not even a little bit.

This is where I found Dan Saturday morning at 10am. Sleeping in the motorcycle trailer while the rain was pouring down outside. He refused to get out of bed.

This is where I found everyone else. Smashed into a camper. Keep in mind, this is only half of us...

We decided we had enough of the smashed camper scene. So we left. This is what happens when you leave while it's get stuck and have to dig the mud out from the wheels so they will turn....

Then you drive 2 inches and start all over again.....and your hands end up looking like this....

Then the Donner Party comes over the hill on their ATV's to rescue you....laughing all the we result in obscene gestures....

and they keep laughing....then they take us back to the smashed camper scene that we so desperately wanted to get away from.
Once we were rescued, Gerald decides to have family scripture study...turns out he was really just reading out loud to himself.

Here is where we hiked a mountain to see this "awesome" cave.

Not awesome.

Then someone decides to take the scenic route back to camp. This is a picture of my sister and mom about to cry because we are about to slide off a cliff.

This is the Fisher's view of their near death experience. After all was said and done my uncle said "What was so bad about that? This happens all the time." Not in my life Corey!

Dan and Corey in the tunnel the Chinese dug with shovels. Quite amazing...I'm glad that wasn't my job.

This looks a lot like the "camper scene" but it's not. We obviously like to squish a lot of people in little areas and take pictures of it, ok?

At least it's not raining anymore!

This is where Dan decided to relieve himself....right where everyone could see him....thank you hun.

Back at camp. Are we having fun yet??

How about now?


This is my "kill me now" face.

The dogs seem to be enjoying it!

It finally dried up enough (5 hours later) so we could go home and shower.
When we got in the car it started shaking uncontrollably. So, we took it to the car wash to spray the mud out of the wheels. Now instead of just muddy, we are wet and muddy....awesome.

Dan's face says it all. "Disgusted"

This is where I said "lets take a picture, pretend like this is funny."

Me, Dan, & my mom. My sister is in the car enjoying a mud free life.

Once we got home....and clogged up the tubs with mud....we headed to Elmo for my sister's baby shower!
Prego lady! Only 5 more weeks!

Thinking hard....

Joni, my dad's sister Sherrie, and her daughter Zoe! We were so glad they came!

Some of the wonderful gifts!
Thank you to everyone that came, and thank you Jill for letting us use your house!
Side note: I don't know why the spacing my posts are always messed up...sorry.
