We have returned and we are all in one piece... refreshed and ready to go on with our daily lives. It was sure hard to leave the mountains though. The one thing that really drew me back was the thought of a nice, long, warm, heavenly shower. Ahhhhh...
Here's my Aunt lounging by the campfire. I can tell she's thinking about chopping wood.
We went 4-wheeling a lot. Here's one of the fun trails we were on. Can you believe there were still patches of snow? Don't worry, I will spare you the fearful sight. I really don't want to scare anyone off... you know who you are Judy!
One of the BEST things about camping is the camp food. YUMMMMMMY! My mom made us this oh so yummy meal on our last morning there. OMG it was d-lish!
Here's one of our fearless protectors. He made sure those squirrels kept their distance and didn't attack us!
I guess it's done!
Gooey sticky messiness. Perfect!
Levi never really got around to ever putting his in the fire. I guess whatever works for ya kid.
On Saturday we went to Dismall Lake. It was gorgeous!
Before I could even get my camera out of my case Levi had decided to fall into the water. So, while his clothes were set out to dry he traded them in for this very stylish Sears flannel. I think he liked it more than his regular clothes. We put some pop-tabs on the end of his line so he could practice fishing. If you've ever tried to fish with a 2 1/2 year old you can understand why we went with this method. He loved it!
Here's Casey and CJ fishing off of a log. Nothing was caught. The fish just weren't interested in eating. Personally, I think the stench from seven people camping 4 days in a row probably drove them all away. The stench didn't bother the frogs. CJ caught a couple of them. Aren't they cute?
After the lack of luck at the lake we took a ride up a very steep mountain road to the top where we could see everything around us. It was AMAZING! Here's my husband drooling over the Mallard Larkins. He wants to take a week and hike in there. Can you see the snow?
When we go camping we give each of the boys a special whistle so we know where they're at. We play games with Levi saying "Where's Levi?" and he blows his whistle. When going camping with children this is a MUST!
