Camping with the Symes
My friend Desiree (which if you read my blog should know who she is from all the times I have blogged about our double dates) reads my blog, and we write back and forth everyday while at work, so we always know what is going on with each other. Last time Brent and I went camping Desiree decided she wanted to come with us next time because she and Chuck had never really been camping together. So we planned it and did just that. This weekend we went up American Fork Canyon and camped at the same spot that Brent and I did last fall. We had a little bit of a late start, but once we set up camp, it was a lot of fun. We brought up two dutch ovens. In one, we made pizza... it turned out ok. In the other one we made peach cobbler... it turned out awesome. We even brought up some vanilla ice cream in the cooler to eat with the warm cobbler. It really hit the spot. Next morning we packed up camp and found a picnic area down the canyon a bit and Chuck and Desiree made blueberry pancakes, eggs and bacon. So yummy and then we played Phase 10 and then headed home. It was very simple, but it was so nice to be out in nature and enjoying each others company. It was so beautiful up the canyon. We fell asleep to the sound of the river near by and the bright stars above. It was a great time and we always enjoy hanging out with Chuck and Desiree. They have become very good friends. Thanks for a good time!
