Camping Memorial Day 2009 - Sylvan Lake

We had such a good time. It rained on and off, but it was great--when it rained, we sat inside and played board games. It was a fabulous time all in all--great to spend time with each other as a family--no distractions...just some good family fun and memories for us all.

GREAT THINGS:
being together
the perfectly roasted marshmallow
board games
listening to the light rain in the dry trailer
a furnace in the trailer
s'mores
hiking
the misty clouds in the morning
the beautiful view
listening to the kids play together nicely
fishing
the brisk fresh air
dutch oven cooking (yum)
clean bathrooms
warm showers
dirt under the finger nails
the campfire smell in clothes, hair...everywhere
snuggling in the trailer
no distractions


NOT-SO-GREAT THINGS:
gnats by the lake
We have a fun summer of camping planned!
