On the way up...we were wondering if there would ever be any trees...
But we found them! Our campsite was beautiful, the best one in the whole campground. There was tons of woods around it and a creek running through. This is Greyson trying out his new backpack and going to find some firewood with Daddy.
Studying their handiwork...
Hiking our 6-mile hike on Thursday. The trail left from our campground and followed the creek. We enjoyed the COLD water too!
After dinner Thursday, we were a little stir crazy from being cooped up in the tent all afternoon, so we took a drive. Thanks for the beautiful rain, God, it was awesome!
And beautiful rain clouds make for amazing sunsets!
Pancakes Friday morning :)
Greyson and Dan played in the creek by our site, throwing rocks like all good little boys should do :)
Once we got there, the downpours started. Let's just say that thunder, lightning, hail, and rain don't make for the best lake picnic day ever...Here's our view of Big Lake:

After spending the afternoon in our tent, sopping up puddles, the rain finally stopped and we had a great evening. Greyson loved hanging out by the fire.
And of course, his first taste of roasted marshmallow :)
Stay tuned for Saturday and Sunday!
