This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Fun at the Lake with Family

My shift yesterday at work got cancelled because of a slow schedule so what did we do? Went camping! We packed up the trailer and headed out as soon as Brad got out of school. I had checked the forecast earlier that day and it was supposed to be clear, but we noticed dark clouds in the distance on our way to the lake. We tried a different camping ground that was a little more rustic but had a better view of the water. We saw some turkeys and deer on our way there.

I had invited my mom and stepdad to join us for a campfire dinner. They met us there shortly after we got the camp ground situated. Just a few minutes after they showed up we got hit with high winds and a thunderstorm! We jumped into the camper to ride it out, and I brewed some coffee to keep us warm :)

After several episodes of thinking the rain was over, then it started again, we were finally able to gather some sticks and make a campfire. The view of the water was pretty, as well as the storms in the distance.

We all roasted hotdogs and marshmallows and had a fun time sitting around the fire and enjoying nature. They headed home around 7 and we stayed by the fire enjoying the calm and cool evening. As the sun set I got Brad ready for bed. He passed out within a few minutes, then Nick and I stayed outside with a big fire to talk and star gaze.

The night was uneventful and we all got up around 7:30 for breakfast and coffee. We headed home around 9:30 and had time for lunch before Brad went to school.

We are already planning another camping trip down to Foster to boondock at my inlaws' house again on Saturday!
