Camping Adventures

We had talked off and on all summer about maybe going camping, but Mr. Einstein didn't think it was fair to the wildlife for M to be in their territory.

At the end of July, however, some friends of ours asked us if we wanted to go, and we said yes.

So, we frantically searched online for a campground that still had available campsites and discovered Alta Lake.

Alta Lake at sunrise. Yes, I said sunrise.

We snagged the last two. And even better, they were side by side, set apart from the rest of the campground!

Technically my sister's tent.

The five big kids spend their time playing in the "woods," getting as filthy as possible, swinging, and playing in the water.

We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Made hobo dinners and drank instant coffee.

We talked and talked and talked.
Saw the stars.
Battled yellow jackets (oh, the yellow jackets!).
We swam in the lake, froze in the mornings, and sweated in the afternoons.

I cannot wait to do this again next summer!

  1. I can't wait to do it again next summer either! I didn't know you posted this, I'm bored at home--sick. Ugh. Anyway, thought I'd checked out your blog & we made it on there! Yeah! I feel quite special :-). -Mel
