**Warning: Photo overload :)
We went camping with my sister's family over labor day weekend. We don't normally go that late in the season but it was the only time we could figure out for both families to go.
Taylor and Brooke couldn't come with us due to school and work and we missed them. Luckily we did have Jared and Kamryn with us. We went up Friday morning and luckily got a spot because someone had cancelled last minute. We couldn't believe how full the campground was that late in the season.
Paul teaching the kids how to put up the tent. They got good practice because we had to do it twice because we had to move spots after the first night because it was reserved by another group. Luckily we could move to another first come first serve spot that had opened up in the morning.
A note here - thank goodness my sister took lots of pictures because I hardly took any.

We also saw a bald eagle fly over the lake, catch a fish and fly back to a nest to eat it. COOL!

I spotted Paul at the top of the falls. They loved the hike and wished they'd had more time to enjoy all the swimming spots along the way.
It was a great camping trip and we can hardly wait to go again next year, especially because Justin will be home and can go with us :)
