weekend camping

we had a fun little camping trip with our friends jared and kristine this past weekend. the dune buggy looked more at home cruising through the dirt and sand dunes than down our street. it was a blast!
the real highlights of the trip for me were almost stepping on a rattlesnake in the dark, getting a painful bug bite in the middle of the night, watching a creepy movie before we went to bed (not a good idea for me), hiking through bushes with swarming bees, and listening to howling coyotes as we set up our campsite. yikes, and i thought sleeping on top of the houseboat at lake powell all those years was camping! rich is really giving me a taste of this wilderness therapy. i will say i loved seeing the beautiful night sky, waking up with the sun and hanging out in camping chairs all morning. just please hold the snake next time. thanks. oh and i'll be watching a disney movie before i go to bed. ;)

shoveling rocks...

was our waterski staff's secret code for personal ski time when lyndsey and i worked at camp vega in maine 7 years ago (oh and my claim to reality show fame is that ashley from the bachelorette was a dance instructor there that year..hehe).anyway, i was pretty excited when i got to "shovel rocks" with lyndsey while we were in idaho last week! lyndsey has been one of my best friends since age 3 and now she's married and has two adorable kids and a boat with a heater. what?! when we worked at vega we would race to the cabins after training and turn our hair dryers on to warm up. what a hard life..ha! so now that i've told you some really important information about our secret code, the bachelorette and hair dryers, here are some pictures from our beautiful day in island park!
