Heber Valley Camp
This is our 4th annual camping trip to Heber Valley Camp with the DeWitt family. We haven't taken any family pictures since Logan was born and I have been wanting to take family pictures with Josh and Logan. There are always colorful leaves to take pictures by, so I planned for us to take pictures right when we got there. I didn't realize how hard it would be to get Logan to smile for the camera! He is such a happy guy, but it was hard to catch his smile at the right moment. I posted my favorites, and I added one of the best to the blog for our welcome-to-our-blog-this-is-a-picture-of-us section.
It was Logan's first "real" camping experience staying over night and everything. I had him watch as his dad and Beth started the fire and he had to have smelled the smoke. He was a little fussy when it started getting dark. I don't know if it was because he wondered why no one was turning on the lights, or if it was because he was cold, but I don't think he was cold, because I had him dressed in three layers. He slept almost as long as he normally does, so it ended up being a positive experience.
I just love camping. It is so nice that you forget about worrying about everything. It helps me remember the simple things of life and what is really important.
We have been wanting to add some pictures to the background of our blog, so Josh took these and other scenery pictures at the campsite. He is talented at everything he does, especially when it comes to art. He took the picture we have in the background of our blog of the fall leaves. I love the colors of the fall, but I also loved this picture of the lone yellow flower in the midst of the weeds.
