Saturday was a busy but very fun day. I went to the semi-annual Scrapbook Expo in Sandy. Since I’ve moved here I’ve only missed one. They are great! Along for the ride was my old roommate Mari and my mother-in-law, Robin. We had so much fun. This time my personal theme seemed to be “rub-on’s.” That’s pretty much all I got but what do ya do. After we raided our favorite booths, the three of us went out to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch (yumm). It was a great time just hanging out with the girls.
Later that day Devin decided the family should go “camping.” Ok, not really camping but hot dogs, s’mores, hamburgers, plenty of smoke and a few raccoons. We loaded up our car with most of the eating essentials, camping chairs, and firewood and headed out. So Devin, Robin (MIL), Dave (FIL), Sarah (little sis), Grandma, and me all crammed in our car and we were up the canyon. Normally, it costs $6 to get in but then the ranger asked if we had a life time pass. Grandma did but she didn’t bring it but the ranger was nice enough to let us go as if we had it.
We found a nice little day-camp and set up camp. It wasn’t too long till we were roasting dogs, grilling burgers, and toasting the mallows. It was so much fun! Devin and I really missed not being able to go camping over the summer and this was just perfect! All the fun but not the fuss with tents and bug spray. Later Aric (BIL), Megan (SIL) and Shawn (Megan’s hubby) came to join us. We managed to forget a few things (like a spatula for flipping the burgers but that’s nothing a hatchet won’t fix). We had so much fun that everyone in the family is planning on going next weekend. Hopefully everyone will be able to make it this time.

This is the secret to a good fire: an air pump for an air mattress. Works like a charm to get those flames a goin’.
