So one of our very favorite places to camp is Icehouse Reservoir. It's less than an hour and a half from us and is so beautiful. This is a photo I took of Union Valley Reservoir which is the lake just past where we stayed. We've stayed there before. The weather was gorgeous. A little warm for camping ... in the 90's but it was 106 at home so we couldn't complain.
We hung out by the lake quite a bit. The water was chilly. The kids both helped out a ton ... Kyla cooked 2 dinners and Brian and the kids went fishing a few times but didn't catch anything. We all love playing games. One of our recent favorites is Skip-Bo and of course Sorry is always fun.
So ... one of these photos was taken with my fancy schmancy $750 Canon camera and the other one was taken with my iPhone 6. Can you guess which one is which? Results at the bottom of this post.
Kyla made raspberry and strawberry kabobs to go with breakfast on the first morning. Yum.
We weren't quite sure how taking Daisy camping would go but boy were we pleasantly surprised. She was off leash almost the entire time and never left our site (except to follow Trixie a few times). She slept great and was just easy. She got a little yappy at times with other dogs but other than that it was quite a success. Thank god because boarding is so expensive these days. Who said little dogs aren't outdoorsy.
Daisy's first ride on the kayak. She wasn't too sure about it.
Who's the captain of this boat?
Just wanted to get ONE good picture of the kids together. Lets just say it was rough but I got some great outtakes. Love these kiddos. Good times.
I love how this one turned out.
Such a water girl. Love her. My favorite moment from the trip is watching her learn how to skip rocks ... and the huge smile when she finally got a triple skip. Smile.
Roscoe used to love corn on the cob and we realized Trixie's never tried it yet. She loved it and of course, it wasn't long before Daisy got in there too. Brian's so funny. They each had burgers and corn. Special occasion.
Daisy had a harder time because of her HUGE overbite. Haha.
Mason loves this little doggie.
Seriously. I could just look at this face all day. I love her freckles.
The top photo was taken with my big camera and the 2nd one with my phone. I find myself using my big camera less and less these days.
