Once Upon a Time…

…we had a week long camping trip planned up American Fork Canyon with my whole family.  It was the only summer plans to speak of so we were pretty excited!  We arrived Monday afternoon and were instantly covered in dirt.  The kids loved the little creek that ran through camp.  They threw rocks into it and even tried to build a dam.  We had a nice dutch oven meal and a good time roasting marshmallows over hot charcoal (no campfires allowed).  We survived our first night all together in a tent.  It was LONG but we were alive in the morning.  We spent a morning at the lake and enjoyed the canoes.  We attempted a nap in the tent that failed miserably.  We were happy and settling into camp life…

And then almost 24 hours after arriving, this  happened…

and we were evacuated.  And our summer vacation was cancelled.  Pretty sad.  But we are happy that we had time to clean up camp, gather our things and made it home safely.  Maybe next summer.
