kum ba yah

It's been quite a busy week and I finally had a chance to organize our pics from our weekend camping trip for show and tell. Our camping adventure took us up to Kamloops for two nights at Lac Le Jeune Provincial Park... here are some pics!
This is our little tent... actually it's not too little, since we had a doubles sized air mattress in there with quite a bit of room leftover. And since I am on the short side (five foot one inches to be exact), I can stand up in the tent without hunching over... yay! 
Here is our artery clogging breakfast. We usually eat really healthy when we are at home, but all rules seem to go out the window when we are camping or on road trips. If it is any consolation, we washed this down with fruit juice and home made blueberry muffins.
Here is Lac Le Jeune. (Insert your "oooohs" and "ahhhhhhs" here).
This is a pic of us on the dock by the lake making gansta signs... I think the ducks and geese quite enjoyed it. (And just to clarify, for those who's sarcasm detectors are on low today, we aren't actually in a gang).
Some pretty wildflowers we saw along one of the trails - a pretty pic Roger took. (Yah, my man likes to take pics of pretty flowers sometimes... got a problem with that?)
The sun setting. (Insert more "oooohs" and "ahhhhhhs" here).
And the last pic is at Logan Lake, which was on our drive home. I believe this machine is used for mining... but I just wanted to take a pic with it, since it made me feel like a teeny tiny sprite.

Oh I used to go camping there when I was a kid! I still remember how beautiful it was, and sky was so clear at night so you could see all the stars...

I am so looking forward to our family camping trip in Boone. The photos of your trip are super envy inducing and gorgeous. (heheh...especially the gangsta one) You are too adorable. I love that you can make me giggle in almost every post. xo

Lovely photos, beautiful scenery. Nice to see you camp the old fashioned way. That's the way we used to camp many moons ago when our kids were little. Now our daughter goes camping with her kids but "Grasshopper" has abandoned the ancient ways, turned her back on tradition. They go in a humongous trailer camper that has about 4 TV's and DVD players inside, a washer and drier, air conditioned, full bath and complete galley kitchen. Roughing it ? Hardly ! LOL

Yummy artery clogging camping food! You have to break the rules when you're in the wild--it's part of the experience ha ha! I love love love the sunset pic and Roger's flower pic--men with an appreciation for natural beauty ROCK :) Glad you clarified the gang thing 'cause I was a tad worried ;)

camping is great. I hope your tent does better in rain than mine ;)

Alicia Istanbul said...

Looks like a fun time. I always skip breakfast, but if someone served me a plate of those bacon and eggs, I'd eat it every day. Yum.

Hollyrocks said...

You ended up with some gorgeous photos! This looks like a wonderful place to camp. I can't believe the variety of the wildflowers, they're growing in every color of the rainbow!

You are so cute next to that truck, hehe.

Elissa said...
