A Camping We Will Go...

With the 24th of July holiday here in Utah, we wanted to do something fun. We decided we would get the girls from their mom a day early and go camping. We don't get the chance to go camping very often even though we live so close to the mountains. I have to admit, I was hesitant about going. I didn't want to have to chase Christian and Emma around all weekend, and I didn't think it would be as relaxing as Marcus kept trying to convince me it would be. One of Marcus' friend's and his family went with us. Marcus' mom even came and stayed a night with us. We really roughed it this trip. We slept in the mountains, we were attacked by bears, sharks and other sea creatures, were exposed to horrible noise, and forced to eat things we don't normally eat. It was an awesome adventure.

WELCOME...here is the door to our tent.


Here is the outside of our tent...


and the inside.



These were the bears that attacked us....



"Who ate all my Oreos???"




and the sharks and other sea creatures.







This is the horrible noise we, okay, I had to endure...


I swear, this game follows me everywhere. I hear it in my sleep. Marcus' mom even played the drums. It was nice.

We ate some really good food. Chicken, Homemade pizza, Dutch oven peach cobbler...it was all really yummy.

We did go camping, really. My definition of camping anyway. We had every intention of going camping and taking our trailer and sleeping in it with the whole family and going potty in outhouses and eating hotdogs for every meal and yah, doesn't that sound great?! I think Marcus got tired of my whining, so we rented a cabin instead. Instead of getting really dirty and having to cook over a fire, I got to shower everyday and use a kitchen to cook in. I even had the chance to sit and make some homemade cards. I don't remember the last time I got to sit and do something crafty like that. I even got to take a nap!! It was super duper nice. I can't wait to do it again.
