Family Camping Trip!

This last weekend we decided to take the kids on a camping trip in the Uintas. I am not claiming that taking an almost 2 year old camping is a good idea...but we did it! The kids had a blast, and it was beautiful. So worth it! We decided to go to Hoop Lake.It was a small, gorgeous lake, and it wasn't crowded at all. Derick's brother Jason, his wife Katya, and their kids Danny and Leeza came with us, and we are so glad they did. We all had a lot of fun together! We all ended up catching a lot of fish, and we sure ate our fill! We came prepared to survive some terrifyingly exciting bear encounters, but much to our disappointment the bears kept their fraternizing to the lake...about 50 yards from our campground site. :) We came home filthy dirty, sunburned, and exhausted...but we have some great memories!! Can't wait for next year!
