Gooseberry day 4--farewell

The guys hiked into Farnsworth at the break of dawn for one last fishing trip. Scott Swayse took his family so they could see how beautiful it is-- well here are a couple pictures they got right before the incredible hail and lightning started. :/ They trudged back and we cleaned camp and headed home in the pouring rain. It was a soggy end to another great time at Gooseberry.

Gooseberry day 3

Today's highlights were the treasure hunt for the kids(where the treasure was a picture of the temple!), candy cannon(which we about didn't do because it was raining and the field was muddy), and Cole discovered the easy-on faucets thanks to the help of Clint(which was mean of us to just take a picture instead of scoop him up--sorry Cole it was just so pathetically cute).
Of course some started each day of this reunion with a fishing trip. The lake of choice this year was Farnsworth. The snow recently melted so not many people have even been able to get to any of the lakes past Twin Ponds. We also went to Salina Reservoir today but it was very windy and the fishing wasn't good so we didn't stay long, but long enough for everyone to enjoy riding in the Grob's canoe.

Gooseberry day 2

Today's highlights(or at least the only things we remembered the camera for) was a fishing trip to Cold Springs and the flying squirrel. Fishing is always fun. The Swayzes, who are our friends from Heber, joined us at Gooseberry this year. Emma's endless giggle always makes me laugh when she's the squirrel. Melanie flopped her legs all around like they weren't even attached-- she's obviously a dancer. Conner wasn't sure about it and had a scared look on his face but then poof he wasn't scared; He smiled, giggled, said, "I'm a bird," and he flapped his arms. The other kids were all having a blast. They could have gone again and again but I guess it's hard work to pull them up so the pullers limited the number of rides. :)

Gooseberry Reunion

Granny started the Bosshardt family reunion off with "Granny's Treasure Chest." This is always a highlight of the camp. At random times she'll holler out, "Granny's Treasure Chest," and all the kids drop everything and go running. The kids enjoyed playing with their treasures while we got dinner ready. Jason's family sponsored a dutch oven dinner that was tasty. Looks like Kirby had bananas and sweet potatoes instead--poor guy. (His eyes look awesome in that picture though--nice job Mr. Photographer.)
