Camping

Sunday, June 29, 2008

Well it has been a pretty busy and FUN couple weeks. We went camping for a couple days in the Uintahs, which was really pretty and fun, but I am SO glad to be home. I am not a "Lets eat some granola and climb that huge mountain for FUN," kinda girl. Don't get me wrong, I like the outdoors, rock climbing, fishing (as long as I can throw them back) and hiking. But, at the end of the day I want my nice bed, computer and air conditioner. :) Not to be freezing in a windy tent worried sick that my kiddos are cold. By the way, they were sweating the entire night while we were cold because I put all the blankets on them. just a tip....body heat works really well, but the exposed side of me that wasn't against Craig was FREEZING! Anywho...



The kids had so much fun running around and eating LOTS of junk food. Ky mostly played in the dirt and collected rocks. I was so worried the entire time she was gonna fall in the fire because she just kept running all over. Mckay loved hanging down by the lake , he even caught a fish...he loves fishing! But, he always asks "Mom, why do they have to die...why are they bleeding and sad?" Then I have to explain to him that he just stuck them with a huge sharp hook and that God put them on this earth so we could eat them...even though mommy & daddy don't like to.

Our hike was so pretty and had a GREAT view at the top...we hiked this tall tower and could see forever. The hike felt like 10 miles but it was only 5. I guess it feels that way when you are hauling 23 (wiggly) extra pounds up the mountain. Thanks for the fun GREAT trip Howe's and Kroegers! Sorry you had to see me with no makeup and crazy hair for a couple days...not to mention the smell :) haha.

Looks like fun Howe family! Can't believe how HUGE that fish McKAy caught is! WOW. Anyway, cute pics!

As always, your pics are gorgeous. Your kids are so cute...and that story about Mckay pooping...though I'm sure was embarassing, was hilarious!

I love camping but it must be a little bit of a trick when you have two little bugs to keep warm all night. Looks like you had fun. The hike looks beautiful!

You are so funny about the 7 layers of warmth...sounds like me. I was just telling Ross how I am worried about Anna getting cold when we go camping...and we aren't going for over a month. I am a weirdo. The pictures are super cute too - I especially love the canoe one...the colors are so vibrant. Looks like you guys had a fun time. Anna and Ky should get together and talk about their interest with rocks...I don't get it.

I love the pictures you took! The new texture youre using is so awesome! I miss REAL camping. Its too humid and hot in Nebraska to do any camping for more than one night.
