Getting Out of the Heat

My family (hubby, daughter, granddaughter) and I went to a campground near Payson, AZ in Forest Lakes.  It was my husband's company's annual campout.  My hubby caught the most fish and won a trophy.  We had a great time and it was nice to get out of the heat.

My hubby's tent. (The girls stayed at the nearest hotel.)

The camps port-a-potty.

This critter and its friends were caught by the kids.

The campsite.

A nice fire for the evening.


Getting dark...

My daughter and granddaughter walking to camp.


  1. Haha! I'm with the girls. Hotels all the way. No tents for me!!!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful adventure for every one.

  3. As an old creek jumper myself, I ca tell you - that's one whopper of a crawdad!

  4. Yeah LGH, I did my share of tent sleeping when I was younger but don't want to do it anymore. I need a toilet and shower.

    Gail, we had a great time and I was glad my daughter and granddaughter could come with us.

    Bubba, he caught three crawdads that size and ate them all.

  5. Looks like you had a lot of fun. When i was younger I loved to camp, now I'll just stay in a hotel. Too many bugs crawling around at night for my taste.

  6. Vivienne, I agree...too many bugs! It's also those midnight potty runs that turn me off from staying in a tent.

  7. Oh, man, I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to be cold. What is cold??? It's going to rain. What is rain? I want to collect every leaf I can find.

  8. I am looking forward to the cold too! Last weekend was so nice that I am ready to be cold again.

  9. That looks awesome. Any good ghost stories for the kids??

  10. The tent I could handle but I admit I'm not a fan of the porta-potty!

  11. Camping with family is one of my favorite autumn activities. It looks like you had a great time.

  12. Sean, we missed out on the ghost stories. I can't wait for my granddaughter to be old enough to tell them to her.

    Brenda, that port-a-potty was ok. At least I didn't have to maintain it.

    Jessica, we have fond memories of camping with our kids and friends. Our kids still talk about them.

  13. Excellent crawdad! I hope you guys fried that baby up:)
