Camping up Diamond Fork Canyon

We went to Diamond Fork Canyon this weekend for a quick overnighter. The weather was great~ nice and sunny with a cool breeze. There were some nasty looking bugs there, but no mosquitoes, thank goodness. We camped right next to the creek, and had lots of trees to use for shade if it got too sunny! The kids really had a blast and are such troopers! Ben, Rochelle & Grant came up late Friday night and we had a fun time with them as well. I didn't get any pictures from our rides b/c it was WAY dusty, and I didn't want to take my camera and run the risk of it getting ruined. (I have ruined a camera before from too many dusty trails) So, maybe next time, if we remember to put the rack bags on the 4 wheelers...

Enjoy these pics from the weekend!

Our tent (which we love) set up right by the creek. We were able to sit inside the tent in the middle of the day because it was shaded just right with a breeze coming thru the screen!

Scott, Duncan & Carrie on the 4-wheeler. They had so much fun with Daddy riding around camp and up & down the road. Carrie is getting quite good at controlling the trottle. (heaven help us) She thinks that she needs her own machine now. Maybe....

Carrie & Scott shooting mom's gun. She did rather well- hitting the coke can several times in a row!

Duncan & Scott shooting. Oh- and of course Copper. She has to be right there with you whenever the gun comes out. It is funny, but good for Scott since he is working with her to be his "hunting dog".

Carrie & Duncan sitting around the campfire. They love their tiny chairs to sit on. It makes them feel important~ or something.

Scott & Copper around the fire. He is always good to get a nice fire going. I'm starting to see his Boy Scout skills being put to good use!

Duncan asleep in his sleeping bag. I know that it is hard to see him, but Scott wouldn't let me take another picture of him for fear of him waking up from the flash! (yes, his sleeping bag is camo)

Carrie getting ready for bed in her sleeping bag. She loves sleeping in it and feeling like a big girl.

It isn't camping until the kids get dirty. You should have seen the bath water when we got home!

Duncan crashed before we even pulled out of the campsite. He slept the whole ride home, which made for a nice and quiet drive.

Looks like lots of fun. I can't believe Carrie has a pink sleeping bag! I was totally planning on Camo for her! Of course they are shooting guns when they are 2... You guys are so brave!!!
