Camping (again)

So we went on our second camping trip of the year over the weekend of June 24. This time we went with some friends and their families. It was so much fun! We went up to Spruces campground up Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Saturday morning we went to Silver Lake for some fishing. There was still quite a bit of snow on the trail around the lake.

Saturday afternoon, a few of us hiked up to Donut Falls. The water was so high that we couldn't get as close as we usually can.

Donut Falls in the background. Trin opted out on going hiking. She's still just not into it.

Kevin was helping the kids with fire starting skills.

We won't mention what's happening here....


Kevin and I don't even own a dutch oven, but thanks to our friends, we learned some dutch oven cooking over the weekend! I think we need to invest in some now. :)

The kids definitely were worn out!


The weather was perfect during the day, and a little chilly at night. It was so nice to get away!

Looks like so much fun. I'm glad you were able to go with friends. That makes it that much more fun!

You have a lot of fun pictures! A lot more than I do. BTW, there is a pretty unflattering one of me that I think you need to delete. :) (any picture of me eating doesn't look too great, plus I'm slouchy and what not...) oh well... it was super fun.

Good times! Thanks for including us in the fun. That last picture of Kate and Ryker makes me laugh! Their big dirty grins are priceless!

I didn't see any pictures of Heidi eating. Did you really take it down? Looks like you had so much fun. The picture of everyone walking on the bridge instantly brought to my mind the Andy Griffith Theme Song. Must be the fishing poles.
