We've had a lot of fun camping this summer. My parents purchased a new/used camper trailer and headed up to their favorite spots in Island Park. All my siblings (except Brad) have made it up to visit for a weekend or two. Justin and I had a weekend all to ourselves then also went up with Julie, Aaron, and Camden, and Jordan and Afton. We drove up to Sawtelle Peak for the first time ever, canoed down Big Springs river, visited the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, and ate at a restaurant that made no small matter of their dislike for customer service. We especially remember the cardgame by lantern-light when Afton couldn't get why everyone was so bothered by the swarming moths. "They're only butterflies," she kept saying. Dad entertained himself (and the rest of us) by trying to start fights between the bugs and then throwing them into the hot wax of the citronella candles. Fun memories.
