The Fourth

First camping trip of the year (have a cluster of mosquito bites on my ankle and foot to prove it).
We went to San Luis Lakes State Park. It was a barren wilderness, lots of sage brush and sand.
We were joined by great friends and of course there was yummy camp food.

Sand dunes in the middle of the mountains. It was crazy hot. Thank goodness there was a little water spot for the kids to splash around in and Sophie to eat the mud.

Sophie and her buddy eating breakfast. They were at the most awkward age to go camping. Can't walk yet and the smorgasbord of dirt and bugs on the ground would be a little much. I was pretty tired of holding her an hour into camping.

Ry and her buddies.

Hiking through a freezing stream to see an AMAZING waterfall.

Our camping trip was a success. Thanks to Sophie and Ry for cooperating.
I see another camp out in our future real soon.

Invite us when you go next. We loved it too.

ps I need copies of some of you pictures of the waterfall since our camera bit the dust...literally.

it is so hot at the sand dunes! I'm glad you had a fun weekend.

You guys are such good campers, I would have lasted no more than 30 minutes. Sophie looks so much like a lighter version of you:)

Sounds like you had a great time! Love the pictures. Glad you get out camping because our good intentions have gotten us out once in the 7 years we've been in Layton. :-)

So this is what you chose to do instead of see us, huh?! ;) Looks like fun!
