July 15-18 we went over to Fallen Leaf Lake for our very first camping trip with Aubrey. We go camping every year with my family and it's always been a tradition to go to Twin Lakes/ Bridgeport, CA, but with the limited time off right now for Brandon and my dad we decided to take a trip closer to home and for a shorter amount of time. We really missed our usual camping spot, but the lake and surroundings were just beautiful! We set our tent up, with the pack-n-play in there too, and had some time to relax.

At about 3:00am, we decided to move myself and Aubrey into my parent's trailer. Much better choice! She didn't end up falling asleep until about 4:30 and neither did the rest of the camp, but we had finally got some shut eye. The next day we were all a little on edge from being so sleep deprived. I hadn't been that tired since Aubrey was a newborn! Brandon experiences this type of tiredness on a weekly basis. We all got a taste of it that day.
We spent the next day relaxing, eating, going to the lake, playing games, and bicycle riding.
Friends let us borrow their go-pod which was such a lifesaver for us! Aubrey loved it.
The next couple of nights Aubrey and I slept in the trailer and they were MUCH better nights. The days were again spent relaxing and just getting to spend time together. We had so much fun and wish we could have stayed at least one more night. It was great to spend some quality time with Krystal and Jon before they leave for Utah in the upcoming weeks :(. We all were dirty and I think I'm still trying to get the campfire smoke smell from my hair, but it was all so worth it!
