Camping at Soap Stone




Last weekend we went camping at Soap Stone. I am not much of a "roughin" it kind of person anymore. I used to like sleeping in a tent and didn't mind so much when the rock under my sleeping bag kept me awake all night. Once I had kids everything changed, I value my sleep so much more! Give me a nice warm trailer so I don't freeze at night, and a mattress to sleep on, and I'll be happy.



Rory and I decided to head up Saturday night after he got home from work and at least stay one night. Chris and Deanna were so nice to share their trailer with us. Thanks Guys!
The girls had so much fun. Jaelynn LOVES the four wheelers. She begged everybody to take her for a ride. She went on the "BIG" ride with us and loved riding in the front. It made her feel like she was the one driving. Lexie on the other hand just enjoyed eating the dirt and playing with all the dogs.


Kallee and Haylee were there with grandma and grandpa. They were so nice to help entertain the kids, although sometimes they were the ones entertaining us.

Haylee was being a goofball making funny faces out the window at us.



Kallee decided she didn't want to get her shoes muddy after the rain/hail storm and fashioned these lovely little numbers.


The colors were so amazing. I almost forgot how much I love the mountains in the fall. I tried to take some pictures, but my camera just didn't capture the beauty of the leaves. It was nice to leave the stress of everyday life behind. No work, no traffic, no laundry....you get the picture. I think that everybody should take a day and just get away from it all; clear your head and just enjoy the peace and quiet.

I can't believe how much your oldest looks like you. I had to take a double-take. She's cute though. It's fun camping in the fall. Not too hot- usually not a lot of bugs!

I Love cping in the Fall. I love the weather being a little chilly and enjoying a fire at night and hot chocolate in the morning. the leaves aren't terrible to look at either.

These pics are beautiful. Love the mountains in the fall. But I agree, not much of a camper after kids. I am a hotel girl...in Hawaii! Now that would be a vacation! :-) Camping does have its place though!
