A Camping We Will Go

Camping. SO much work for a relatively short amount of time. In addition to all of the packing and preparing, we had to buy a new tent (which is gigantic and sleeps 8), an air mattress, sleeping pads, etc.  The good news is now we’ll have all of the stuff for future trips.

Anyway, after packing tons of crap and our entire family into our van, we headed up to Echo Reservoir, which is just about an hours drive, and met up with our friends Emily & Jason and their kids.

The water was pretty high, so there wasn’t much of a beach to camp on as planned, but we found a nice secluded spot and there was a great swimming spot about 100 meters away. The water was wonderful, and the kids (and Jake) has a great time swimming. So did I. We even managed to coax Greg in for a few minutes :).

You can add tons of “creative” dancing, lots of marshmallow roasting, and scary stories to the list of activities.

It was a great camping trip and I’m looking forward to the next one.

    Echo is cool. That was one of the places that was popular at DHS to cut school and go water skiing. Hey, and wide-mouthed Mickey’s were just a quick drive to Evanston away, which I never partook of because I kept the Word of Wisdom!

    I hate camping but I’d love to do something besides staying out of the sun. HA! Looks like you had lots of fun. (Jealous!!!!!!)

    Miss you all. 🙂
