Camping 2013 {Meadow Lake}

Camping 2013 {Meadow Lake}
So one of the things on my 30 before 30 list was to take our kids backpacking to Palisades…. and given that this was the last weekend before school started I planned for us to go.
In reality there was a lot of hee and hawing about whether or not we should go, Dave still has two herniated discs and backpacking 7miles in to a lake didn’t seem like possibly the best thing to do. Dave said he could do it, I well I didn’t want him to get hurt, so at last min. after we already have our backpacks all packed we decided to just do a camping trip up at Meadow lake.
If your wondering….. the kids LOVED it!
Getting to ride in back of the truck is always super exciting for them!
 We checked out some of the old deserted mines around there, and had fun turning off our flashlights and seeing how dark it was.
 We took a little hike up to some more mines
 Which Payton had a blast rolling some rocks down the hill and watching Bruno chase them– {That dog is a rock chasin crazy!}

 At about this point when Dave was killing from just our little hike I was very thankful that we weren’t backpacking in. {He built a rock tower while he waited for us to get back}
 Did I mention Payton really loved rolling the rocks down.
 There was a fun little stream that the kids had a blast in.
 And Dirt, much fun dirt and rocks!
Chilling round the campfire and cooking yummy dutch over food- my favorite, meat and potatoes!
 Payton of course wanted to see how things burned and exploded.

 We played BB gun tournament games
I was 100% at 7 shots… ya– I quickly handed the gun over after that didn’t want to mess up a good thing
{Payton now thinks him mommy is an awesome shooter :) }
 Also while Camping this happened……
 Notice any difference between the two photo’s :) Yep all she’ll want for Christmas this year is her two front teeth. {And thank you corn on the cob I was sick of the front tooth hanging out at all sorts of funky angles}
Needless to say I think the kids had a dang fun time.. as did we!
