I can't forget July Long

One of our favourite camping trips this summer was a trip that almost didn't happen. July long weekend was set aside for the Colour me Rad race. But, with all the flooding and destruction the race was postponed. By that point though we'd already declined on any other fun long weekend plans. So a day or two before the weekend we suddenly realized we had nothing cool to do!! And then thank goodness for the Asplund's! They called us up and invited us to come our to Dutch Creek with them and Andy's sister (and her family). We pulled in late Friday night...only to realize that half of Dutch Creek was shut down due to flood damage. So we had to find the Asplund's on the OTHER side. Well...let's just say, coming late on a long weekend to a place like that (when half of it's unusable) means you have pretty slim pickings for spots. BUT they had found us a little secluded spot that was a tight squeeze to get into...but perfect while we were there.

We spent the weekend just hanging out, quadding, eating and just having fun. We stayed up SOOOOO late hanging around the fire sharing all our most embarrassing stories. And I of course turn into a fool when I'm tired. It made for some pretty good times!

The weekend was sooooo hot! It was great fun though. The best part was when we were leaving, things were so tight that the Leavitt's ripped off their jacks and few other things from their trailer. I felt like our trailer was going to tip over. It was a pretty tense hour of maneuvering, but our men our expert trailer pullers and got us out safely! It was really so fun and I hope we get a chance to camp with that crew again!

Looks like a fun weekend!
Love it that the children don't all have clean faces in every picture. As G-Pa says, They're kids!
Love, G-Ma and G-Pa
