I decided to make our young ins little rednecks out there because I wasn't going to bother dressing them up in their Sunday best so they could roll in the dirt. I figured this was the one and only time I was going to allow them to wallow in dirt and mud- might as well let them get good and dirty! The kids loved it- did great- Jared and I always anticipate the worst when it comes to our kids and vacations/ different routines, and we all had a great time! Dallin basically had a hay day with throwing rocks into a small pond, and spent any chance he could, finding objects to toss in there. Boys! I pulled up a chair since he was literally there FOREVER!
Spending only one night there was a lot of work, but was a perfect amount of time for our trial camping trip. The kids slept on the way there, and passed out on the way back too! Honestly it was great being out in nature, spending time with our friends who are moving soon, and letting the kids get dirty and just play! I think will actually do it again!

A few things to remember- for next time:
1. Aubrey, don't forget to bring tennis shoes!
2. Bring a ton more wood for fires if it will be cold! (4 bags at least!)
3. Bring toys for the kids.... in case there is no puddle of water to occupy the time
