Waterfalls, hikes, and hammocks were all in full effect at the Scholes Family Reunion this past week. Tradition and memories brought us Johnson kids excitedly back to Calf Creek campground in SE Utah. Chad always loves to play with his aunts, uncles, and grandparents and this was no exception (In fact, we can't even mention who we're going to see anymore until we close enough to not mind the whining for the rest of the way.) Chad even made friends with a couple of 2nd cousins he didn't really know before. Throughout all the creek swimming, shirt designing, hammock swinging, and campfire singing we all had a great time. The highlight may have been the hike down into the upper falls. The slick rock was pretty grueling, but the cliff jumps into the waterfall pools were well worth the effort. Mary (6 months pregnant) put everyone else to shame being the first one back up the slick rock on the hike out. That's my girl.
Aunt Jen is the one Chad typically whines for if he knows he's going to see her.
