Well it seems as though the humidity has broken and the mosquito's are at bay for the fall because the weather has actually been quite nice here lately. Because of this we had to jump on the opportunity to go camping with some friends in our ward when we were invited!
We went to a campsite called "Little Bennet Campground" that is about 30 minutes away from home. It is a very peaceful place that reminds me a lot of the great northwest. Very green and lots of trees! The campsites were big and well maintained and had bathrooms with lights and flushable toilets of course (not sure I would camp any other way).
The camping trip was such a success. We had great company to visit with, Dominik had lots of friends to have fun and get into trouble with, and we had some great campfire food to partake of! The night wasn't even too bad; with our air mattress having a leak we were totally expecting a relatively rough night!
In the morning everyone woke up, ate breakfast, and then packed up their things. We all parted ways to do our own family thing, and were sad to say goodbye, but excited to enjoy the beautiful day that we were blessed with. TJ and I heard about some free boats you could rent with a military ID at a nearby lake so we decided to go check it out.
We were definitely glad that we did to because it was awesome! My big strong husband rowed us around the lake all day and it was a blast. Dominik liked looking for fishies and turtles, and I had fun just basking in the sunlight! The afternoon was completed by lunch near the docks and then back home. We had such a great weekend and feel so blessed to have been able to share it with some great friends!
