Camping!

We've had a camping trip planned for a few months now, and it was this past weekend. We'd taken an extra day off work, and although there were some last minute changes in plans - we had a super great adventure :) Our weekend included:

Finding a closer place to camp the night before we left (originally planned for Yosemite)
Picking a random place to camp.
Packing way too many things we didn't use, lol.
Driving up to 8,000-foot elevation.
Super desolate dirt mountain roads.
Finding out there was nothing (stores, gas, etc) within an hour of the campground.
A stream running right next to our site.
And all this awesomeness



Only bad part, didn't see any deer, booo! :) Camping was totally satisfying and definitely worth the drooling I've been doing thinking about it for months!

I'm so sad we didn't get to go with you! Sounds & looks like it was so much fun! So beautiful! Love all of your pictures! Your lil red lantern is so cute! And awwww the puppels! Such good babies off the leash! And oooh a baby froggie!

These pictures are so fantastic! I'm seriously upset about the fact that we didn't go with you guys :( You make camping look so fun! And I just know my boys would have LOVED running around with the pups. I think my little family needs to work on procuring our OWN camping stuff so that when we want to go we don't have to rely on someone else. But I guess I'd have to buy a house to store all that camping stuff at right? Oh boy.

p.s. I LOVE LOVE that red lantern and have been trying to convince TJ that we need one in our house for decoration...I even tried to tell him how handy it would come in case of a power outage! lol
