At the end of June, early July, we got to go spend a week in Dunsmuir with Mark's family. This was a special trip because it was the first time all three boys and their families had been together in 3 1/2 years! When we heard that Nannie was planning crafts for the cousins, it was beginning to sound a lot like summer camp, so we collaborated and made the cousins "Nannie and Papa's Summer Camp 2008" shirts. It was a great suprise. And it was like summer camp, complete with crafts, a fort, water guns, a kiddie pool, barbecues, a swingset, rides in a wagon, fireworks, fishing, hiking, an atic full of toys, apple pie, a river, and a porch swing. Needless to say, we had a great time. Here are some pictures:
Mark and Uncle Kevin on the 4th.
The babies. Cousin Andrew and Hope.
Papa, Hope and Andrew - I think they are playing with a firework.
Hope made a princess hat for craft time.

Fort Rogers guarded by the fierce Noah and Elisha.
Great Grandpa Rogers letting Hope do what Mommy said no way to - it was pretty funny. He is a very funny guy.
Sweet cousins Noah and Elisha.
In my opinion there's nothing much cuter than Hope in a swimsuit. She didn't want to go in the pool, so she "washed" everyone's hands with the water. Here she is washing Great Grandma Franklin's hands.
Noah and Hope being silly.
Elisha and Hope - we think they look the most alike.
Auntie Jill and Hope.
