On Our Way To Fish Lake

We got a late start last Monday; right around supper time we finally got the last of the things packed up, gases up and got out of the city. It was just starting to rain as we left. Thankfully we were able to leave the bad weather behind. I took a few pictures out the front window of the storm front as we left. Really spectacular.

As we got to Rocky Mountain House the sky cleared up and we could see the mountains.

Unfortunately due to our late start we arrived at Fish Lake after dark. Jamie and I had lots of fun finding a camp site and backing the RV into it then trying to walk back to the self-registration box to pay for the night. Mac and Melissa both fell asleep but Megan stayed up and had a treat with us before crashing for the night. We didn’t take the time to set up camp, just plugged the RV in and got something to eat.

Wow it’s been a while again

Wow I can’t believe how long it has been since I last blogged.  Time seems to get away from me.

Yesterday i made some awesome cookies, the kids love them way too much and they never last long.  I hope to make 2 more batches today so that we have some for camping next week.

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp cloves

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Mix ingredients together.  Roll cookies into a ball and roll them in sugar.
