Camping Trip!

About a month ago, we had our ward campout... an event that we look forward to all year! We decided that it would be fun to leave early Friday morning and go fish all day before we met up with our ward for the campout! We drove up to Tonto Creek and fished with Bryan's friend, CJ, and CJ's sister, Sammy. Unfortunately, CJ was the only one with any luck. We packed a picnic and were on the creek all day. Finally, CJ and Sammy had to head home so we drove up to Bear Canyon Lake to start setting up camp. I was SO bugged that we didn't catch anything (that's my White Family blood in me) so we decided that we would set up then run out to the lake for a bit and try our luck there. 5 MINUTES after I set up our tent it started pouring!!! Great, mud everywhere, a wet tent, no fire... this is going to be a miserable night. After sitting in the car for 20 minutes it started to clear a little bit. I told Bry to grab the stuff and we ran down to the lake. We didn't really bring warm clothes, and we were wet, and froze our butts off. We were out there until it was dark because I was determined to catch a fish! (Keep in mind that we were planning on eating the fish we caught for dinner, so we were thinking that we were going to come back empty handed and starve all night.) FINALLY, Bry caught 2 fish back to back, then I caught my one fish, Henry. He was a beautiful fish and tasted wonderful. So, there you have it. We ended up with dinner after all. The scary part was that we had to hike back up to our campsite in the dark and we had no idea where we were going! It was a miracle we made it back. It ended up being a very successful trip after all.

Here is Bryan cooking up our fish on our cool new stove!

Me getting rained on. This lake was so pretty!

Us sitting in the car waiting for it to stop pouring so we could hit up the lake! Yes, I know I look like a little boy!

Crawdads!! I caught at least 50 of them in the creek, they were everywhere!

Bryan and CJ. My husband's sexy vest is a little too small for him, and the hat just kills me.
