Camping

For our final weekend before Alex goes back to school we decided to go camping. We went to Oak Grove in Southern Utah and it was a BLAST!! We had so much fun! It was so beautiful there and so much cooler up in the mountains. Zaylee loved being outdoors and getting to wander around but she got very frustrated with all of the pinecones, rocks, and sticks that kept tripping her! =) Needless to say, she had many falls and by the end was just so frustrated with them that when she would fall down--even the little falls--she would just sit there and cry. She wouldn't try to get up, she wouldn't try to move, nothing...she just sat there and cried for mommy until I went over to pick her up and get her going again. It was quite funny.

We went hiking, played horseshoes, sat around the camp fire roasting hot dogs and marshmellows, played games, had our own version of the Olympic Games with the kids, and many other fun things. I love the peacefulness of the mountains and I LOVE how many stars you can see!! That is one thing that I really miss about small towns...the amount of stars that you can see without all of the city lights. Now I just wish we would've gone sooner during Alex's break so we could've gone again!

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Camping is the best. I'm glad we got a couple trips in this summer too.

SO SO SO FUN!! My kids are SO mad at us! We've been telling them all summer that we would go and we still haven't. Ryan said when he gets home from Bulgaria, I'm afraid by then it will be too cold!
