Ever since moving to Arizona 3 1/2 years ago I haven't been able to go our family cabin so when we found out that we would be moving back to Utah this summer that was on my to do list for sure.  Labor day weekend we made it up to one of my favorite places ever :) I got to introduce Lynlee to the mountains for the first time.  It wasn't real camping, but it made it more enjoyable when it started to rain. We hung out with family and played games :)

Not a picture from this trip, but this is up at the Family Cabin and Fall is coming and I am getting excited :)

The next weekend we wanted to make it just a camping trip with my immediate family in tents at a campground.  Our plan was to head up American Fork canyon and camp for the weekend.  When we got up there we were too late and all of the camping sites were taken (it was on a first come first serve bases since it was after Labor Day).  We were bummed and headed down the mountain to my parents backyard and set up camp there.  It was really fun.  We sat around the campfire and roasted marshmallows and had s'mores ...mmm delicious :)

The next morning Nate ended up having to go into work and so we packed up the tents.  Elyse, Tara, Matt and myself decided to head up to Park City resort to ride the Alpine side, Alpine Coaster and other activities.  We have free coupons for guests for these summer activities since Matt works for the company that owns the resort.  Matt, Lynlee and I have season passes :)  It was a BLAST we had so much fun.  We ended our time there playing miniature golf just as the intense rainstorms hit.  We drove home and made it back just in time for the delayed BYU football game to start.

Even though we didn't have our real camping in tents in the wilderness experience this year I was really happy with the way everything turned out.  Maybe next year we can go camping in tents :)
