The housemates and I went camping last weekend. I haven’t camped much in my life but I think that may change – at least a little. I had such a fun time. I was relaxed almost the entire time and really enjoyed myself. We camped at Monarch Park Campground, a campground 30 minutes past Salida, … More Camping at Monarch Park Campground
On Tuesday I spent time with Kaitlin, my mom, and EG! We hung around the house for a bit where I tried Kevin’s homemade Greek yogurt (super good with honey), had Chick-fil-A, and talked to my adorable niece who smiled at me multiple times! 🙂 Kaitlin and I then went to the mall to look … More Happenings of the week

It was a new hike for all … More Four lakes and two hikes
