Camping season

The weather is warming up and it's camping season again! I never knew I'd fall in love with camping quite the way I have. Perhaps, I should've seen it coming. . . an affection for the crisp mountain air runs in my blood. My dad is definitely a camping man. However, the Texas heat doesn't really lend itself to an enjoyable camping experience, so we didn't go much at all while I was growing up. Things have changed. JD's a pro at this camping business and makes it a point to go regularly with our little fam. We've camped in the snow, camped with friends, camped with familycamped with just the stuff off our backs, camped in our living room, and camped with a baby. Basically, I feel like I've done it all ;)  

We'll be camping again this weekend with JD's family. It's a fun tradition and I love spending time with them around the camp site. In anticipation of the upcoming trip, I uploaded a few scrapbook layouts from some of last year's camping adventures.

Journaling from page: "Camping is an important tradition to JD and his family. They've enjoyed going out together for many years. One of their favorite places to go is Burraston Ponds in Mona, UT. Larry and many of his siblings enjoy coming to this location together. They know the area and many of the campsites well. JD is fond of the ponds because of the tree swing they have set up there. Over the last few years, more people (especially BYU students) have heard about Burraston Ponds and it's become a popular place to visit. In June, we drove up to spend the day with the Knowldens. We had fun fishing, eating, and mingling."

Here's to another enjoyable weekend at Burraston Ponds!
