Meg and I wanted to go camping, so we got together with some friends that we met years ago in the singles ward who are now married. Their names are Sarah and Nate Ringer. We left a little late and attempted to be as prepared as we could but we fell short on a couple of things. Mostly the things we left were the ones that dealt with eating. Oops!! We had to compromise some , but we made it work and really enjoyed the time outdoors with our friends.

Megan's brother Todd let us use his tent

Sarah and Nate's tent

The fire.. notice that we made a custom charcoal area to cook our dinner because the little propane grill we took did not work. We used the rack to cover the coals and the top to conserve heat.

A closer view

The camp site

Marshmallow roasting

It seems that it is not out of character to manage to get some type of food on my face when taking pictures after eating things like marshmallows and cupcakes.......

After the marshmallow apetizer and an hour long cook time the tin foil dinners were ready

The next morning.... the tired looks, messy hair, and every person huddled around the fire aspect gives it away....

Once again we had to make a make shift cooking area with what wood we had remaining. It turned out really well... and we even enjoyed the mountain pepper in our food.

Someone forggot the plates.... but we had tinfoil and paper towels so Nate who is currently in a sculpting class made some designer plates for us......

We did a little off roading on the way home.... here it is!!!

looks like you guys had lots of fun and were very creative too! It looks like you have been having lots of fun lately, your Halloween pictures are great and I like the pictures of your dinner centerpieces too. :) I didn't know you moved, you'll have to email me your new address sometime. Congratulations on getting into your own place! YEAH!
