For Memorial Day weekend, we rented a camping trailer and went to Starvation Reservoir with friends. It was so much fun!
It took no time at all for the kids to get in their swimsuits and head to the beach!
I bought some new sand toys just for this trip, and you can see they’re a hit!
Look at that amazing sunset with the mountains!
One of our friends brought their new canoe and kayak. The kids had a blast trying those out! Kate did really well paddling!
Liz and Kate took Alex out in the canoe. I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s a Hawaiian king or something.
Liz took Alex out in the kayak. He asked me when we got home and unloaded where his yellow boat was! He didn’t understand that it was our friend’s. He thought it was ours. I guess we should look into getting one!
Kate blew bubbles while waiting on dinner.
There was a great little hill the kids enjoyed hiking and exploring. We saw deer prints, lizards, and a rabbit!
Stay tuned for our nature study post about all the great plants and moss we saw on our hike! The flowers in the first picture were from my kids on their hikes.
Here’s the view of our campsites from the top of the hill. We have the white truck. The truck camper and green tent on the left belonged to our canoe and kayak friends. The RV with the blue awning belongs to our other friends. We had 5 couples and 10 kids!
Our friends also had 2 fishing boats. The kids (and Aaron) loved that!
Alex’s first fishing trip. Look at that fish!
Tori’s an old pro. She loves fishing and went whenever she could.
Alex didn’t stay awake to tell me about it.
I took the kayak to the other side of the reservoir to explore the rock formations and a couple of the guys (with Tori and two other girls) “rescued” me with the fishing boat. Apparently, telling Kate where I was going wasn’t good enough since no one knew where I or the kayak were. They brought me back to the dock. and I earned my call sign: “Kayak.” My husband and the other guys were in the other fishing boat until much later that day and that was the funny story of the weekend.
We’re already planning more camping trips over the summer. The kids had so much fun!
We love camping!
