Camp Boston (Boxx & Weston)

This weekend we took the kids camping up Spanish Fork Canyon. It was only 2 nights, but with kids that was plenty! We went with our friends, the Boxxes, and had a great time. The kids loved exploring the "haunted forest" around our campsite and walking in the river. My favorite part was roasting marshmallows at night and watching the kids use their imagination! It was a fun weekend, but definitely exhausting. Here are a few highlights from our trip:

Dan and Bradley setting up the tent

Kylie standing on the tent

Ben relaxing while everyone sets up camp

Bradley, Dan and Kylie

Bradley holding the rattlesnake skin that the kids found

Ben, Peyton, Logan, Bradley and Kylie playing in the tent

Peyton, Kylie, Logan and Jarom roasting marshmallows

All the kids exploring with their new flashlights

Playing in the river
(It was moving really fast so this freaked me out a little)

Cooling off

Riding in the back of Jarom's truck
(They said this was their favorite part of the whole trip. No seatbelts, woo hoo!)
