For real this time.

we went camping ladies and gentlemen 
(who am I kidding, there are no gentlemen here ;)

after our time in Yellowstone in August,
we spent a night in the Rocky Mountains of Utah.

It was gorgeous!
these two......commonly known as sworn enemies, are, on rare occasions, the best of buds ;)
set up the 2 man tent together.
Kristen helped her dad and then offered up her expertise opinion on tent building.

They got it put together just fine.
Boy Scouts is good for something ;)
I loved these little pod thingies....not sure what they are called, but I thought they were cool.
Nathan took my camera for sometime, and photographed just about everything he saw!
 Including us ;)
 I got a few of him as well.

This is what I was doing when NOT chasing children in the woods.
Reading a good book ;)

Nathan took about 100 pictures of Jack enjoying his dinner.
It is a funny process to watch, and most definitely scrap worthy.

After roasting marshmallows and making smores, we crawled into our comfy tents and went to sleep.
This picture taken a bit earlier in the evening should have been our first clue.

It rained, and thundered, and lightninged, and rained and lightninged and thundered some more.
I thought we might die.....all night long.
We lived.
And amazingly were quite dry in our tents.
Except for Nathans pillow which was soaking wet??!!??!
We ditched that wet campground at sun up.

Maybe now, they will beg to go camping a little less often.

Don't count on it, Carol, the year that it rained at girls camp is still Kimberlee's favorite year. The rain will definitely solidify the memory for years to come.

What's with you guys and camping plus rain?! Maybe next time you go it won't be so wet. But at least you got to go "for real" this time!
