Mancation '07: "The Year of The Stache"!

After last year's posh retreat at a three story cabin in Mammoth Lakes CA, Mancation '07 returned to it's roots in good ol' Hatch, Utah. This year marked the "Year of The Stache", as all participants were required to sport facial hair normally seen at a NASCAR event. There is bound to be some fun when 11 guys get together and pretend to be a bunch of rednecks!
No Mancation would be complete without some beautiful hikes, good fishin', lots of guns, and crappy food (Not a lot of choices in that part of the world). By far my favorite part of the trip was hiking through the Narrows in Zion Canyon. Going ballistic on a computer monitor with a Cold War era Russian gun was pretty fun too!

Mackenzie Brooke

Mackenzie is not feeling well so I stayed home from church with her. The house is quiet and it is nice to have some alone time with just the baby. She is at such a fun age (just turned 7 months) and her personality is really shining through.

I decided to grab the camera, feeling sorry for the third child, and started shooting away. It turned out to be a great day and I got a chance to capture a few precious moments.
