I slept on an air mattress and still managed to complain

For someone that really doesn't like camping, I find myself camping a lot. It's not that I don't enjoy being outside - it's just that I don't like being dirty, I don't like sleeping with the bugs and other creepy crawling critters and I don't enjoy sleeping with the full moon shining in my face. Other than that, camping is fun.

Friday night my ward had a campout up at some stake property near Woodland. We roasted hot dogs, ate smores and sang camp fire songs. You know, the typical mormon campout thing to do. I made sure Kenzi brought her queen size blow up air mattress so I could sleep properly. If it's one thing I do right, it's sleeping in style when I camp.

The next day we hiked the Silver Lake trail up in Deer Valley and rode the lift down. The hike was absolutely beautiful. I realized this weekend how much I really do enjoy living in Utah. I also realized that I need to start going to gym.

Here are a few pictures that I stole from my friend Justin. Once I have properly stolen my friend Brady's pictures, I will have more to post. This will do for now.

Those are some super cute pictures Nat. The one of everyone at the campfire from a distant with the trees, is awesome! I also love the one of you girls laughing. Your ward does some fun things.

One of my fav camping stories is about when your parents couldn't get Hailey to stop crying and go to bed so they drove her around in the car until she fell asleep. I think this was that last time we were at Strawberry... j/k I wasn't even alive yet, but I stil chuckle! I picture your friends doing something similar with you.
