We had so much fun camping last weekend that we decided to go for round two. This time we went with my siblings . . . Carrie, who returned home from her mission last week, Beth, who’s in town to go to training for her upcoming adventure to China, and Thomas, who just bummed a ride with the girls.
We didn’t even leave Salt Lake until after six on Friday night. We stopped in Oakley for dinner at the Road Island Diner . . . we’ve watched it being built for the past year, and were so excited to try the second restaurant in town (second to “The Polar King.”) Wyatt declared it his new favorite resturaunt. While the food was good, the atmosphere was to die for. It’s an original diner that they shipped all the way from Rhode Island, where it first opened in 1939. It’s all sorts of art deco fabulousness.
We then headed up and set up camp just as the light was fading. We had a few major problems: 1) The batteries to our lantern and air mattress pump died. We were okay without the light, but it was a long, rocky night’s sleep. 2) We left Cal’s one and only bottle at the diner, so he had a hard time falling asleep. Luckily he fell asleep so late that he slept through the night, not waking and wanting his baba. But other than that everything went pretty smooth.
The next morning we headed up to Smith and Morehouse for some fishing. Unfortunately no one caught anything. But it was nice to sit in the morning sun in the beautiful outdoors and not have to think about anything in particular.
After some lunch and a few card games, we broke camp and headed home. It was a fun weekend–even if it was a short trip. YEAH for the Road Island Diner!
