First camping trip with new trailer

Friday and Saturday May May 14 and 15 was our annual Fathers and Sons outing.  Our stake puts this on as the commemoration of the Restoration of the Priesthood.  My Dad, my son Cory and his two boys Hudson and Hafen and I went.  Our traditional place to go is about 7 miles up the Caliente Summit on highway 93.  The stake provides a dinner and then a short program about the restoration of the Priesthood. 

This year, I decided to try out our new Jumping Jack tent trailer.  If you have not seen these before they are neat setup. We also took our Yamaha Rhino and did some exploring around the area.   We had a great time.

We arrived about 5:30 pm and found a spot to set up.  We unloaded the Rhino and got the tent trailer set up, and put our sleeping bags etc in.  Dad and I took the Rhino out for a little while.  After the dinner and program, we went back to our camp.  We built a fire and had a good time visiting.  Cory put the boys to bed and then he, Dad and I just sat around the fire visiting.  We haven't had a chance to do this for a long time. 

Saturday morning we got up, and the ward provided breakfast.  We cleaned up our camp and then Dad, Cory and the boys and I went for a ride on the Rhino for awhile.  I was a lot of fun.  I enjoyed being out with them.  We got home about 11:00 Saturday morning.

You can't see it the picture very well, but Hafen is sitting in the Rhino and holding up some flowers we picked for the boys to take home to Melissa.
