Montague Camp-Out

Mirror Lake

Our family spent the last couple of days up at Mirror Lake with "Boppa Yuss, Aunt Winsey, and NaNa Wevi."  (g-pa Russ, Aunt Lynsie & Uncle Levi)  It was beautiful, but pretty darn cold.  If only I had known it is one of Utah's highest elevated spots...

The cold never stops our boys from having a good time. Jack, who we know loves water, would get so excited whenever we walked down by the lake, and would yell out "ya-ya." (water)

Everyone in our little camp tried and tried to catch some fish. We did eat one small one that Dan caught, but couldn't return to the lake. Mmm. Super fresh.

Josh was allowed to bring up his outside cars and trucks, yet somehow all of his Cars characters found their way in to his things. They were lined up, buried, raced, and filled with dirt. A boy's dream!

Jack just loved being outside for 3 straight days! He collected rocks, watched the birds, walked along the tops of logs, and at one point even lost a shoe and just kept going without mentioning it to anyone. He was completely content.
Josh also had a great time!

What's the other best part about camping? The yummy food!! Thanks Lynsie for all the help and extra snacks from your garden. I owe everyone a lunch since we left early on Tuesday.


Like I said, everyone tried and tried to make the big catch.  Josh and Jack spent a few minutes with their pole and each caught some little fish. Josh knows that the secret is saying, "Here fishy, fishy!" Try it next time.

Little Jack was glued to uncle Levi our last night.

I love this picture!!

Here are my silly boys causing trouble while the rest of us were cleaning and packing up. Between the two of them pulling on it, I was sure the sign post was going to snap right off! They really were good campers.  

Thanks Montagues. (Todd, we missed you) We had tons of fun!!

You guys are always great to camp with. I hope we can go with you next year sometime! It looks so pretty there and nice and COOOOOL. :)

Jamie, you would have frozen that first night like Lynsie and I did. I have never been cold in my sleeping bag, and thought warmth would never come again! But with you being used to Nevada heat... You would have died!!

So fun! I love all your pictures. Mirror Lake is a beautiful place.

I only had your JSD email, and I didn't think that would work. Will you leave your email in my comments, or send me an email at so I can send you an invite?

Thanks, and cute pics!
