Camping at Mirror Lake!

My friends invited Archie and I and Gabe up to go camping with them last weekend and it was so fun. We decided one night would do us since we are always weary with Gabe and camping...But they had two boys that Gabe played with the whole time.

They brought up their water-rafting raft and handcrafted some oars and we went on the lake. A thunderstorm followed us up but it wasn't too bad. We got off the boat right as it started to downpour. Luckily we didn't see too much lightning!

Camping up in the mountains with a beautiful lake and beautiful trees hit the spot. We sat around the campfire and drank some beer, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and gazed up at the Universe. With no light pollution, the sky at night is gorgeous.

The only thing bad about camping is the sleeping. I don't sleep well and even less so when camping. But one night ain't too bad. Gabe got to see experience nature and getting dirty with friends and we got to relax with friends in nature. We even saw a couple of deer run through our camp!

Cousin Time!

Archie's brother Logan and his family all came down this weekend for vacation! They stayed with us for 4 days! Fun times for little Gabe since he has no siblings :) It was a full calendar with the Dinosaur Museum, swimming pool, splash park, Discovery Museum, movies, and all around kid mayhem!

It's great for Gabe to see his family since Uncle Logan and Aunt Sarah and their four kids live in Oregon. Now they are headed off for more than two weeks worth of camping and dinosaur site exploring!


Gabe had so much fun with his cousins this weekend! He is sad to see them go.

It was fast and furious but oh so fun!
