camping trip

Have you noticed how plans have a way of changing themselves?  As it happened to us this past weekend, sleeping in our sardine can of a tent, we couldn't help but be reminded of another big plan we had as newlyweds.  As we looked at our little sardines, in their silent, still slumber, we couldn't help but be thankful that our plans had been changed.
       When we bought our "4 man tent"  it was just the two of us, we had only been married a few months and figured it would last us at least ten years, because we weren't going to have any children for five years.  Here we are 8 years later with TWO children who were both born before we had been married for five years.  Wow, were we off!  A four man tent is not really comfortably big enough for four men, because it isn't comfortable for a family of four with two SMALL children!
                                                I took a nap to catch up on sleep lost
                                                             my fisherman is so hot!

       We were going to go camping to fish lake for a day or two then head down to zions and then stay in a hotel in  St. George.   We did go camping in fish lake for a couple of nights, but then we decided St. George would be way TOO HOT!  so instead we came back up to Salt Lake and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in west valley.  You can see it from the freeway it is the one with the big red slide that starts inside, goes outside, then back in.  turns out there is a little water park in the hotel.   The kids LOVED it and we had a little stay-cation.  we went to the movie and saw Zoo keeper, and went to the mall where we built-a-bear and picked out our own window stickers for each of our car windows.

Ah, that explains why we saw you at the mall while you were on "vacation". :) Looks like you had fun!

Wow! A post! I clicked on to check your blog, and right in the process of clicking, I thought to myself, "Why am I checking it, there won't be an update." But lo and behold there was!
Looks like you had s fun time on your "stay"cation. It is nice to just be able to get away from it all for a few days.
