My Birthday Campout

So, I just had my 32nd birthday. Neldon asked me a few weeks before it what I wanted. I told him that I wanted to go camping and he looked at me like I was nuts. I wanted to go camping in the mountains and get dirty, roast marshmallows, and enjoy nature. So, that is what we did. It was a blast! We went to a campground in Cedar Canyon. It was beautiful during the day and freezing at night. Austin ended up in my sleeping bag with me which didn't make for a very comfortable sleep but that is ok. There was a stream running through the campground so the kids had tons of fun throwing rocks. Austin got mad that we wouldn't let him crawl around everywhere but he loved crawling around in the tent. He puts everything in his mouth-I think he sampled just about everything mother nature has to offer while we were there. Neldon was attempting to take a nap one afternoon and a hummingbird flew in the tent and couldn't get out. After about an hour, I had to shew it out with my hat. There also was a little nest right above out tent with a bunch of baby birds in it. Every time the mommy bird came with food, the little heads would pop up and chirp like crazy-it was just like on cartoons. We took our neighbor Daisy with us, she was big help in keeping the kids entertained while Neldon and I had to do stuff. I decided that I wanted to attempt making a dutch oven birthday cake-the pictures explain it all. So, when we got home, I went to the grocery store and bought myself a yummy birthday to enjoy-of course I shared!
