Ferron, Utah 8/10-8/13/2008

Last week we went camping with Mike's family down in Ferron (35 miles past Price) This place was absolutely gorgeous! We camped right on the lake, the weather was beautiful the whole time, the 4 wheeling trails were amazing and there was also a little 9 hole golf course too! Mike could seriously not ask for more! We had so much fun! I absolutely love Mike's parents! His aunt, uncle, and their grandson came too. His aunt got some awesome action pictures of us on the 4 wheelers. I was waiting to post until she emailed them to me but she hasnt yet so i just decided to do it. I will post those when she sends them. Mike is seriously a jack of all trades! He can fix anything, make anything, cook anything...just about do anything! It was so funny because the whole time his family would be asking him to do EVERYTHING! It would be "Uncle Mike, can you help me fish?!", "Uncle Mike, can we go for a ride!", "Mike, will you put up my tent?", "Mike, will you start the burketts?". It was hilarious! His nephews and neice love him! He is going to make the best Dad one day! Overall the trip was a success, for those of you who know, you know Mikes sister and I dont see eye to eye...AT ALL! There was only one minor hiccup I had with her all week. Which was pretty dang good!
Well we really want to make this place a yearly event and next year friends need to come! We will let you know when we are going again and you guys need to come!

Mike's nephews are 7 year old twins! Before we even left for the trip Porter already had a bloody nose! They are so crazy!

Our campsite. We were right next to the pavillion which was nice for eating! There was a total of 11 of us!

We four wheeled up to another lake and it was quite a ways up the mountain. Literally it was 30 degrees cooler! (at least!) It was freezing, especially considering we were baking in the hot sun all day. Quite the dramatic drop in temp!
This was our campsite looking out at the lake.

Wow! I took a chance by looking at your blog and I'm impressed! The lake does look beautiful. Looks like you had a great time! And it sounded like more than a minor hiccup to me :)

That is such a nice golf course. How is your life going? Are you almost done with school? We need to all go to lunch and have another girls night.
