Camping at Maple Bench

At the end of June we went up Payson canyon with 3 other families for 2 days/nights of camping. We had so much fun and the campground was gorgeous! We went on an easy 1/2 mile hike to The Grotto which was a little waterfall. The kids had a great time and loved playing in the water. Later in the day we went to Payson Lake and let the kids swim and play. The kids got to ride in the back of our friends truck which is always the highlight of our camping trips. The best part of the trip was that it only takes 20 minutes from our front door to the campground. We feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area! Here are a few pictures that sum up our trip:

Cute boys

Dan and Grant

Ben spent most of his time like this-completely dirty!

Grant loved to crawl in the dirt and tried really hard to eat some!
