Memorial Day Camp Out

For the past five years, we have spent each Memorial Day weekend camping at Priest Lake, Idaho. Normally, my sister Krista, Jack and the boys (Ry and Coop) join us; along with Lisa, Mr. Wilson and their children (Zack and Em). Unfortunately, this year we were solo, as Jack's mother, Trish, passed away on Saturday after a thirteen year battle with cancer.  Camping wasn't the same without our family and friends, but we seemed to enjoy our time together.
I was able to sit and relax, read some magazines I had been collecting, and even finished binding a quilt.
 And, all while sitting in front of a fantastic camp fire (a must in my camping to-do's).
The weather held out and it only rained on us Friday evening.  We took a small walk, had a few cocktails (tradition, of course), and soaked in all the natural beauty.  All in all, it turned out to be a fun weekend.
