A Camping We Did Go

Boulder Lake, Wyoming
Memorial Day Weekend 2014
Our maiden voyage in the camper!

Since this was the first trial run with the camper (her story), we stayed close to home and kept the trip short.  We drove about 45 minutes Sunday morning to our camp spot, spent Sunday enjoying the scene, and then loaded up and headed home mid-morning on Monday.  All in all, it was a very successful outing.  I LOVED trailer camping with kids!

We had our own little private beach and spent most of the day hanging out on it.

We were fortunate to have Uncle Stephen with us for the trip!  He recently relocated to Idaho for summer employment--firefighting--and drove over to spend the weekend with us.  It was great to see him again after having just seen him in Arkansas.

So loved.

And so patient.

Trying out the new fishing pole he got for his birthday.

He might do better to cast a bit farther.

First camping trip for this little dude.  He did great.

Barrow's Goldeneye

Having Uncle Stephen around was awesome.  He was always willing to entertain Isaac (despite Isaac's skeptical inquiry:  "Are you a nice guy?"), hold the baby, help with projects, and do the dishes (at least some of the time). Matt and I have decided that a 3 to 2 adult to baby ratio is pretty nice.  We are looking for a permanent recruit--anyone want to move in?

 Caden has recently discovered his toes and is often spotted with them in his mouth.

Gone are the days of treading lightly.
Before settling into camp for the evening, we took a stroll up Boulder Creek Trail.  We've done the hike a couple of times and really enjoy it.  We wanted to give Uncle Steve a chance to enjoy it also.  The water in the creek was absolutely raging--the rapids were huge and boiling.  It was fun to see the water so high.

Our Camp

After dinner, Isaac wanted to lead me on a hike up the hill adjacent to our camp.  I was happy to follow!

Good times.
Glad summer is (mostly) here.
