Camping Adventure

Last weekend we decided at the last minute to go on a camping adventure. So Saturday afternoon we pack up the old tent trailer and hit the road. We didn't really have a plan, we knew we were going to go through Spanish Fork Canyon to look at some land for sale in Fairview. We have a trailer and friend is giving us we just need to find a nice, cool, mountain place to put it.

Nice huh! Well none of the places we saw were just right.

So we continued down to Manti where Eric knew of a trailer park. So we pulled in to there about 9:00pm and took their last available spot. We didn't realize the Manti Mormon Pageant was going on that weekend. We thought what the heck let's take the kids over and check it out. We got there about an hour late(10:30)and the kids lasted about a half hour..
We drove back to the trailer got ready for bed and finally got to sleep around 12:00. Well at 4:30 Macie woke up, it was getting pretty cold so I decided to put her in bed next to me( she was in her fold out bed next to us). This was a bad idea because shes not used to sleeping with anyone and she never did go back to sleep, and neither did I. So around 5:30 or so I took her outside so we wouldn't wake the others I made her a bottle and we hung out in the van.
Then when everyone got up we got dressed and drove to McD's for breakfast. Then to Walmart for some stuff(like mosquito repellent)and then packed up, and headed to Richfield were Eric's Aunt lives. When we got there we got to swim in her nice pool (ya not really camping I know). The girls loved it. Macie took a nice 3 hour nap. Then we grabbed a early dinner and swam again. She insisted we sleep in he house so we didn't have to sleep in the trailer, That was a relief after the night before.

After another swim in the pool(behind the brown fence), we got ready and started off for home. Eric couldn't make that easy either I think he took the longest route on all the back roads. He wants to ride his bike from our house to St. George one of these days so he's in search for the best route. Ya he's got a screw loose as my Mom puts it.

In all we had a very nice time and the kids did very well. Eric wants to try another adventure this weekend up north to Malad Idaho, for Welsh Days. Sounds like to much fun.

I'm glad you guys had fun on your adventure. sometimes no plan is the best plan of all just to see where the road takes you. I need your e-mail address because we are going private and I still want you to be able to look at my blog.

That is my kind of an adventure. I'm always down for a drive, as long as it may be. My family is from Fairview, I love it there. Oh and I can't believe he wants to bike that far. I guess that explains those muscles right?

So, would you just meet Eric in St. George? Why doesnt he just take 1-15? ha, just kidding! We need to get our spouses together, Jared used to love to bike and then we got married and that put a damper on it, he used to build bikes at Pedersons when that was still around.

It would take him two or three days so, I would follow him and we would meet up at a hotel for the night.
