4th of July Happenings

July 7, 2008

Oh, what a weekend….

Brandon, Nolan, and I headed to the Snake River Friday morning withthe two pups and a boat load of camping gear in tow.  Much to our surprise, our camping spot just below the natural hot springs was still available – we were pretty convinced that it would be taken with it being a busy camping weekend, but it seems that mant folks opted to stay home and save on the fuel.  After stomping down 8 foot tall weeds and setting up the tent, our spot was starting to feel pretty cozy. 

It was just the three of us on Friday.  We tried to sneak in a bit of fishing, and a “bit” was about all that was achieved – Nolan put up with the life jacket for about half and hour and then was done (although he did manage to take a catnap in it while on the boat).  Can’t blame the guy, the life jacket looks a bit uncomfortable for those with no neck.

  We finished off the night by playing in the hot springs, grilling up some grease-dogs (a must for camping), and playing “I Spy” (forgot the cards, but we were able to entertain ourselves none-the-less).  Overall, a fun night with the family.

Saturday, we were joined by many friends, including Nolan’s buddy Chaytonwho is 2 months older than him.  With so many friends around and 2 boats in total, we were able to take turns wakeboarding, fishing, and watching the wee-ones.  After a year of not wakeboarding, let’s just say I’m feeling it a bit today.


In not so fun news, Brandon and I seem to have brought home a souveneir of the weekend – poison sumac.  Neeless to say, we’re a bit itchy.  Hopefully it runs its course sooner than later.  Being itchy tends to make a person a bit crabby, so if I’m less than pleasant this week, that would be the reason.

Overall, it was a fun and memorable 4th of July with Nolan.  Hope everyone else enjoyed theirs!

    Gotta say, you are ambitious! Looks like loads of fun, and you know you have to pay for having so much fun! And I agree – hard to enjoy certain things when you have no neck!
