Soak Up The Sun

Camping. Not the best, but not the worst. Everyone in our family was going to go, but Tyler got the stomach flu so him and Mom stayed behind, while everyone else went up to Priest Lake. It was only supposed to take 3 hours, but because we made so many stops at stores to look for dry ice it took us 5 hours. We were all pretty tired out when we got there.
So after we set up the tent in the fading light, we all sat around the fire and roasted marshmallows.

If you look carefully you'll see Kelsey was very careful never to have her face showing in a picture. I don't know why, because to be honest, she looked the best of all of us.

Jenna and Nathan showing off fancy moves with their sticks.

Mom and Tyler decided to give us a little surprise and show up the next morning. Apparently Tyler felt good enough to come up. So we all went down to the beach together.
Because fortunately there was a lake there (which you probably caught onto since it's called Priest Lake) which always makes camping more fun. Unfortunately the high there only got up to like 68 degrees. So the weather barely got to the point where it was too cold to get into the water. Which was a bummer, but me and Jenna had fun playing on the sand, while everyone else just sat on a log and read or watched us.(booorrinnng) I guess Tyler and Nate played on the sand a little, but they didn't even put their swimsuits on.
Here's me building my sand castle, and Jenna building some pit thingy.

Here's the finished product. I know it doesn't look like much. But it took a long time to do, and it's pretty good for me. Plus we had nothing to build it with except out hands and a broken plastic cup. So no laughing.
Here's Jenna's pit. It doesn't look too impressive either, but don't judge it. It was really cool in person.
Here's a couple of pics of the lake (which was really pretty) and of the kids having fun on the beach.

Well I think this is the longest post I've ever done, so I guess Congrats to me.
ps. If you can't tell, I actually had pics on this post. Why? Because I noticed we don't really have any pictures of our family right now, but tons of them when we were all little kids. So I made a commitment to start taking pictures of us whenever I felt it was needed. That's why there's no pictures of me really. But I feel proud to have made a goal and so far have kept it.

  1. I'm glad to hear someone in your family has decided to take pictures. :) Looks like you made the best of a cold day at the lake. Have fun going back to school.
