Wordful Wednesday – Camping in Utah 2013

Wordful Wednesday 411Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words. It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try. Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

It’s finally time to circle back to our annual Utah camping trip.  I have so many pictures of the trip though that I’ve put it off.  I put all of my photos in a folder on my desktop and then I open it up and just stare at them, wondering how many chunks to break the trip into.  The problem is that I have so many photos I want to share and I don’t want to have to pick just a few….{smiling}.

Our Annual Utah Camping Trip

I’ve mentioned before that we go camping every year with my side of the family in the mountains in Central Utah.  My dad, sisters and brother all attend and we do a ton of exploring on quads, motorcycles and 4×4 vehicles.  The mountains are absolutely gorgeous and it’s always so nice to get away from the normal hustle and bustle of life and enjoy nature without the interruption work, phones and the internet.  {{smiling}}  This post is all the shots I captured of us sitting around camp.  Obviously not everyone is in these shots.  They must not have been sitting around.  {{laughing}}

  1. Your camping trip looks so amazing! I wish my kids had experiences like that with cousins. 🙁

  2. Ohhhhh that looks like so much fun! Now that we’re back on the West Coast and amongst family members, maybe we’ll finally get to have some fun like that, too! Of course it won’t be as awesome as your fun, but I’ll take what I can get! 😉

  3. Looks like a fabulous time! We camp in a camper now but used to tent camp for many years. It’s nice to get away from it all and get back to the basics, without all the hustle and bustle. The simplicity of it is so refreshing.

  4. Cute.
    It looks like so much fun.
    Great pic’s.

  5. Creating those family memories that the kids will never forget. Like Christmas in Manti. Uncle Snotty is looking thin these days– where’s his better half?
    That sheep trailer looks pretty cool. That thing is probably pre-camper trailer era eh? Nice not to have to be in a tent in the dirt. I know the kids love to camp, but I just can’t love seeing them so filthy. Makes me crazy.

  6. looks like yall had so much fun!!!!
    broxton wants to go camping so bad… lol, but i am not the “outdoorsy” type.

  7. LOVE these photos and that baby is FULL of cuteness! Oh and now I’m hungry after scrolling through the Eggo post… that is not on my menu! rofl…. but I want it….
