Camping.....a new adventure!

(a new adventure that is, with Twins!)
Cory came home on Saturday around 5 pm and decided that we were going to go camping with the kids! It was a quick pull together but we were up and set up at around 7. We went up to American Fork canyon to "granite flats" campground, it was seriously so gorgeous! The leaves are changing colors and we had a perfect little spot!
Hayes and Olivia had never been before, our idea of camping out is usually on a Houseboat in Lake Powell. They were loving every minute of it!
Boston was helping cory on the Fire duties, and Hayes was quite obsessed with FIRE, just like his Daddy and Boston!!
Olivia was busy laying on this one rock and saying "Look, i on the rock like Ariel" while she was singing......"ah ah ah"

We woke up this morning to Cory's delicious Breakfast of Eggs, Sausage and Bacon.....and S'mores ;)
It was such a fun Family Bond trip, my kids were loving every minute of it and it was well worth it!
We were home by 11 am and i got dinner in the Crock pot and we were all off to Church at 1:00! (you gotta love late church)


This is the Famous Rock that i was talking about, She was loving pretending she was Ariel!
LOOK!! I got Hayes Smiling at the Camera, we have been working on him!
Of course, we went to Tibble fork and threw rocks in the Lake, and Boston was catching bugs! (what's a camping trip with out going on a hike and throwing rocks in a lake.)

These 2 boys were mesmerized by FIRE!! Seriously i couldn't get them to stop throwing stuff in it!

And Last but not least, HE wanted me to blog this picture especially, of him Catching a Grasshopper with his own two hands! He was quite proud! Then his dad told him to eat it!
EWwwww!

Actually does looks like fun - eventhough I hate camping. I bet the kids loved it. Did Boston eat the grasshopper?

NICE! Man, I miss granite flats. I hear the leaves are changing early this year, must be sweet. You'll have to come to NC for the full fall colors!

Looks like so much fun (for you guys at least, Bry and I hate camping!) Love all the pictures and I love that Olivia is obsessed with Ariel. You should bring her out here to see Little Mermaid on Broadway :)

How fun! Funny...Brent and I totally aren't campers either...we love hiking and being outdoors and I love the campfire and roasting marshmallows and making s'mores and all that fun stuff...just not the camping part :-) Your kids are so cute and way to go Hayes with looking at the camera...Lolo is doing better too! Olivia is SO sweet...I love that she loves Ariel, so cute!

Andrea Marie said...

I'm definitely jealous! That looks like a lot of fun. I can't wait to get up the canyon soon to see all the leaves change! Your kids are adorable! Even Boston, the bug catcher! ;)

Ali said...

I can't believe how big the kids are getting ... and how mature Boston is looking. Only a week and a half and I will get to see them again! Tell Boston he has to dip the grasshopper in chocolate first, then eat it ... YUM!

Heather said...

I'll see you on Wednesday. Thanks again!
