{camping amongst wildfires}

This last week we took a little camping trip.
We left on what would have been my first day of school... if I was still teaching.
I felt like a rebel.

We had originally planned to go to the Trinity's to camp. 
But they are burning down.
Seriously.
I think as of this last weekend the fire was maybe 5% contained. Yikes.

 Yellowstone was an option also, but it was a ways away and also had some fires.

We decided on Stanley... which is just past Sun Valley. 
As you can see, it wasn't free of fires either:


But we went for it.
We stayed at a lovely lake that was about an hours drive from the fire... and the wind was blowing in the opposite direction.

The fires may or may not have affected us though:





The boys did A LOT of fishing. They were determined to catch us dinner for at least one night while we were there.
It was a good thing that we brought food for every meal however, or else we would have starved.
Bless their hearts... they sure did try. 
It took up most of their time.
Brody's time was taken up by farming still.






The cousins had a real REAL fun time throwing rocks into the water. 







Here are some other little snapshots of the trip:

{drowning his sorrows about the lack of fish to eat}

{still going strong... still no fish}

{rawr!}

{letting himself into the tent}

{chopping wood}

{Lake Alturas}

{My boys... poor Brody's eyes were all puffy after camp sleeping, wonder where he gets that from?...}

{...nevermind}


We had a great time {minus cousin Caleb... he spent the last day barfing}.

Our first family camp trip was all in all a success though.
It reminded me how much I like my bed.
AND my shower.

Peace out homies.
Have yourselves a wonderful week!
