This weekend Fri. night to Saturday afternoon was the first time I'd been camping since I was 13! We went up near Coalville to Frienship Manor or Meadows or something and camped out for a night for the Annual Merkley Reunion Party! We got really dirty! Especially Christopher and all our clothes had to be washed when we got home! It was very fun to see all of the Merkley clan for a short time! I survived camping out in the wild! Friday night I was so scared of bears, mountain lions or cougars,etc because I could hear things around our tent! Cheryl and Ann said there might have been racoons or squirrels out and that's it! I was still scared! But slept okay. When I wasn't hearing a little kid scream in the middle of the night, not mine by the way. 

Overall, we had a fun time. I may go again. I would like a 5 star hotel or Lodge better but you get what you get! And we can't afford that anyways. It was a great birthday celebration for Christopher and he had fun with all his relatives! Chelsea
