Camping Trip

Friday, May 28, 2010

Last weekend we headed to Jordan Lake for a weekend family camping trip. Here is "The Fisherman" and with his "other" lady!


Our homestead for the weekend(note to self: tents are NOT water proof)



Just us being goofing while Kyle is in charge of cooking the hotdogs.(note to self: a 13 year old boy cooking over an open flame...NOT GOOD!)



Kyle & Chevy's home for the weekend(aren't they just the cutest couple you have ever seen!). Yes they both slept in the tent together. During the night we would hear Kyle saying "scoot over Chevy...geez!" I can only imagine the stink in that tent when it was sipped up! Since Kyle refused to use the bathhouse after all my drama and Chevy swam in the lake and rolled in the sand....NICE!


This is me and my winning catch...what??? Does it really look that small? I swaer it was huge in person!


Oh Lordy I look a hot mess in this one...yikes!


See...his isn't any bigger than mine...right??????...actually I think we may have caught the same fish twice?????


Kyle never even put a pole in the water. All he wanted to do was get on his tube and hit the water(more of these pictures on a future post)


awwww....MY boys!


see I told a tent wasn't water proof!


yes...he is using a cup to throw the standing water out of our tent after a huge storm hit...NOT COOL GOD!



See, and all you guys thought I was crazy to go camping. We really had a great time. We cooked hotdogs, chicken wing & smores. Swam, caught some fish and rode the tube....minus the down pour it was a great family weekend with tons of memoires made...and that's what matters most!

I enjoyed your post so much. Your son is so cute. My Emma would say he was a "hottie"!!!

I have a story about a tent and water...let's just say I don't enjoy camping:)

Have a great weekend!

Those pictures are great! Looked like a lot of fun, well besides the wet tents. Camping is so fun. :)

FUn! you know, in the sense that I am glad it was YOU camping and not me!!

Tamela said...

Girl you are much braver than me! I don't think I have ever gone camping in a tent. Granted most places Michael wants to go is out in the middle of no where with no bathroom.

I'm sorry, but I am not peeing in the woods! It is much more difficult for women!

Jenna said...

I want to go camping now....

Tubing looked fun!! I sleep with my dirty dogs sometimes too...they can't help it :)

Angie said...

It looks like a blast, wet tent and all!! Our lab sleeps with our son every night and it cracks me up how much Lil' Man talks to the dog about hoggin' the bed!! ;)

I'm so glad I read this post.

I hate camping. But always get this nostagic idea in my head that it is fun.

Nope. Not fun. Outside. Dirt. Hot. Fish.

Lol...the best part IS being with those stinkers though....isn't it:)

And um.....WWwwhhhaat!?!?! open flame....Kyle! yeah..That would be a diaster over here with my boys...Lololololol!!!!

Bridget said...

We have a tent, but nothing else, so we haven't been camping yet. Can't wait to get the other stuff so we can go...

Cathy said...

Looks like a blast, but I still don't want to go camping! lol

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Oh wow! We were thinking of possibly going camping next weekend, but now I'm not so sure that I want to since the forecast almost always calls for rain around these parts these days!
