Going Camping!

YAY! I'm going camping. The truck and trailer are all loaded and I probably won't get much sleep tonight...anticipating the trip and going over the list in my head to make sure I have remembered everything.
Camping is one of my favorite things to do with my family. I love to get out into the mountains and be a part of nature close up. The beauty always clears my mind and puts everything into perspective for me. It's so nice to take a break from our busy life and "recharge".

We are leaving first thing in the morning for beautiful Fish Lake. We have made it a tradition to go every July with several of our good friends and thier families...we always have a blast. We all leave at the same time and talk to each other on our 2 way radios all the way there....back in the day it used to be the good old C.B. radios.
Remember those? My handle was "songbird". What was yours?

Here are a few shots from last year's trip to Fish Lake.

It's easy to see the reason why I love to go.



It rained a few times last year and look at the beautiful rainbow after the storm. When it rains, we all gather into the trailers and play cards. Very cozy, I love to hear the rain on the roof.

We are so lucky to have this beautiful world to live in.....and Utah has so many gorgeous places to go camping. I feel so lucky to live here.



I like the family photos that we take when we go camping the best....they show as as we really are. This is Mr. Honey, me, Sterling & Kassidy. Our oldest son Ben is missing from the picture because he couldn't come last year or this year because of work....sigh....our children grow up too fast...
I will be back right after the 24th, refreshed & relaxed & with more photos to share......

Enjoy and relax. I'm guessing you will be taking some hand work along, and we will be seeing new and exciting applique.
I'd love to be at Fish Lake right now and getting out of this St. George heat.

I loved your family picture. What a great time you're having with your family. Enjoy!

How fun! I've never seen Mr. Honey before, now I just need to see a photo of Ben and his wife. I've seen photos of Sophie Belle, but would love to see her in person! Have a great time.

Breaker, breaker, this is whitebuffalowoman~ That was my handle back in the day. Imagine my delight to pull up your blog and discover the sign for a campground we haven't visited in not quite 30 years. Our daughter (about 2 at the time) loved to help her daddy clean the fish. LOL doubt she'd touch one now.

Enjoy your trip, and all the wonderful fun of camping. We used to be in a tent, sleeping on the ground. I really miss being able to do it. Jo
