Before kids Cam and I used to take off on a random camp out all the time. But apparently in the years since we've gone to AZ, moved back and decided to pick up camping again, the Wasatch Mountains have become very popular because every last spot up Big and Little Cottonwood as well as American Fork and Provo canyons was taken!!
I had a little meltdown in my mind (all of those hours of planning and shopping and packing and cleaning WASTED!) and then decided to make the best of it. We headed back up the canyon and found a day use spot up at Ledgemere (my favorite picnic place up Big Cottonwood) to make our tin foil dinner, dutch oven peach cake and s'mores.
|Something about cooking food outside makes it taste amazing!|
|1 yellow cake mix, 1 can of cream soda and a bottle of peaches in a dutch oven for 25 minutes makes an AMAZING dessert!|
|Assorted siblings and siblings-in-law|
|The whole gang!|
|Wyatt and his construction zone|
|The after dinner entertainment|
|She was on a quest for the perfectly roasted mallow|
|Colby's First S'more - I think it was a hit!|
|Sugar + messiness + sticking things in the fire = total bliss for this boy|
|Livs and Grandma Vickie (my awesome mama!)|
|and amazing dad!|
|Now that is an excellent campground!|
