Camping Trip

After our Indiana trip, we decided to go camping for a few days in the Wasatch National Forest. It was actually a lot more fun than I thought we would have. We got there Friday afternoon and set up camp. Then sort of lounged around the campfire until bedtime! The next day, Michael and Ben wanted to take Toby exploring... so we went around the other campsites with Toby in tow. Michael remembered when reserving our campsite that the Provo River was not supposed to be too far from camp, so we set off looking for it. Toby had a blast! We finally found it and stayed in the river for about an hour before heading back. Then we made and painted some camouflaged dart guns. It's crazy how time flies when you aren't paying attention to it, or don't have a clock to remind you of the time... before we knew it, it was time for dinner and the campfire again! We stayed up playing cards and talking and then left for home the next day. Hopefully, we can do this again sometime this year before the summer's over!

Our sweet tent!

The campsite was absolutely gorgeous... we were even able to see some moose walking through!

Trip home...

On our trip home, we decided to stop at Chicago. It was one of our favorite cities by far. Kinda cloudy, but still awesome!

Next Stop: Kansas again.... no pictures needed!

Next Stop: Iowa. We actually hit a HUGE storm coming home through Iowa and Nebraska. It was really cool when the lightening struck... it pretty much lighted up the whole sky! Kinda scary...

Next Stop: Nebraska. It was raining soooo hard, we couldn't take any pictures and we actually had to stop because we could no longer see the road!!! Crazy!

Next Stop: Wyoming. Bleh... no pictures necessary either... nothing too special. Although we were very very excited to see the mountains start to pop up everywhere around us!!!

Overall, it was an awesome trip, but it took us over 37 hours to finally reach our destination! We were sooo glad to be home and in our beds!

Lake Day

We visited Lake Monroe a couple days before we had to leave. It was pretty fun watching Toby and Lacey duke it out in the water! Toby is quite the little swimmer!

The whole family minus mom.

We had a great time while in Indiana. Michael's family was sure nice to put us up for a couple weeks. It was great spending time with everyone. Aubrey and Evan are growing sooo fast! Although it was really humid, the weather was really nice for the most part!

Toby and Lacey

Michael's family also owns a dog, a standard poodle, Lacey. While we were there Lacey and Toby had quite the friendship going.... :) At least that's what Lacey thought... She's just a puppy and was always wanting to play with Toby! We finally realized what a patient dog Toby is! :)

Lacey's favorite place to be.... hehehe

They were good friends by the time we left :)
