Seth got all done haying and irrigating so we took off Tuesday for Wildhorse for an overnight campout. We found a nice grassy spot right by the river that Seth loves to fish. We rested then went for a drive up to Fall creek and took the most beautiful little hike up to the falls. It took about ten minutes. My kind of hike. Just right for a grandma. Seth and I cooked dutch oven potatoes and chicken then the guys went fishing. Kelsey and I went for a little jaunt on the four wheelers then read(whoopie) while the guys fished. Acutally it was very pleasant and enjoyable. I'm reading "Twilight" and even though it's SO STUPID that it's about a vampire it kept me entertainedvery nicely. Right about dark the three guys had walked the whole river and were home. Keaton caught the most (four) and they really had a great time. They saw a moose right by the river just as they finished. I was in the camper so I missed it. The next day we slept in till about 8:30...ubelieveable for me since I wake up at 5:00 every morning. It was heavenly. We pigged out royal. We had leftover dutch oven potatoes, bacon, eggs, French toast, cantalope and orange juice. Gabe always wants to know what I eat. HA! The best part of camping is the food, right? I tried to take tons of healthy food but the junk food was way too hard to resist. Then we went for another favorite hike up to the big falls. It's another great grandma hike. It's only about 15 minutes and mostly in the shade. Lunches are always the pits to me but Seth suggeted Jan's chicken salad. We had it both days and it was FABULOUS!!! It's just a bunch of celery, red grapes and chicken with a little salad dressing with sugar in it. YUM!!!! We then hung around a little and came home. Wouldn't you know my camera"s battery went dead so I only have a few pictures.

Sounds like we missed out on some good times! That food sounds sooooo yummy. I've never been there, so I should get Alex to take us there sometime.
