This past weekend we met some friends at Lost Lake for a weekend of (rainy) camping. It was gorgeous when we arrived on Friday, but later that night the rain hit and stayed for most of the weekend.
Our main concern at first was the bugs. Here is Olive trying to catch the ones swarming her. They didn't bite, but they got all in your face!
Oh yes, I camped in the rain and set up the tent all by myself at 8 months pregnant! Aren't you proud?! I had some SERIOUS heartburn after bending over to get the tent set up.
First time camping in Oregon in YEARS!
We had an awesome fire all weekend long. Good since it was cold and wet!
The boys cookin up breakfast Saturday morning.
There were so many beautiful trees.
Olive decided that she should get her own camp chair. Luckily we had extras! If she wasn't running around exploring she was posted up by the fire napping. Spoiled puppy.
Saturday afternoon we headed down to the lake and the boys attempted fishing. After about an hour, the girls headed back to camp. Three hours later the boys came back empty handed with a story about donating fish to a youth camp?? Sure guys...
This is really the best representation of the weekend...under the rain canopy (that G drove into Hood River to buy on Saturday) trying to stay warm and dry. It was fun, but I am not a rainy day camper!
