August Camping at Bryce Canyon

We had a family gathering at Bryce Canyon in August and all camped out together.

Bob and I and Jenn and Michael all set up on Friday afternoon. We expected Ryan, Heather, Nathan and Janelle and family on Saturday morning.

We were all going to meet at the Bryce Canyon Visitor's Center - it was the free national park weekend for August.

We took Lady and Sammy - the dogs - cuz this would be Ryan's last chance to see Lady considering he will be in Oregon for 4-5 years and she is over 8 years old and although she loves going for a ride, she doesn't do too well on long trips. Ryan was so surprised!! Lady loved it all but was so exhausted she begged to get into the tent and sleep on Saturday night.

Saturday night it got down to the low 30s and most of us were quite cold. Nathan did not like camping at all and so of course, his mommy and daddy did not have a good time either.

The grandkids all enjoyed running around and gathering wood for the fire on Sunday morning. We were together for all too short a time but at least we pulled it off - have to plan for a longer reunion next summer!
