Spring FUN

Spring is HERE! Since the weather was so nice last weekend we decided to test out the waters and go for a backpack trip.  We thought maybe just maybe if we stayed low enough we wouldn't see too much snow.

Ha....WRONG!  Snow piles taller than me and then some!

We went to Lake Como in Montana. It's about an hour from our house. The Lake was super pretty and it was so warm! In the night It couldn't have gotten any colder than 50 degrees.  Just perfect camping weather.  We camped that night at the Como camp ground and then headed out the next morning for the higher lake.  We hiked about 3 miles until we saw snow.  At first it was just little piles here and there. Well then it turned into Hugh SNOW piles! The trail turned into a little creek with snow on top!  It was still atleast 60 degrees out.  We started hiking through the hugh snow piles. Yes, snow piles in shorts and athletic shoes!  Our shoes were soaked and my legs hurt because of the freezing snow touching them.

We went maybe another mile until we just couldn't get any further. Too much SNOW!  We hiked back to our car..... went home to watch a movie and eat CURRY!!  It was still so fun to get out and play in nature! We are so sick of being stuck inside and not being very active!  Yeah for SUMMER!!

Como Lake....the view of it from our hike.  The lake was like 3 times bigger
than the little piece in this picture.

Jackson hiked the entire way! What a cute puppy!  We loved having him since he makes
everything more entertaining. Yes, we are those weird dog people!

When went on a hike in Salmon.....this is OUR pretty little city!

For memorial day we are going to MOAB!!! I can't wait! I think about it like a million times a day. I can't wait until school is over.  I can't wait until I just get to soak up some SUN in a pretty place. I can't wait to play with Jedd....Katie....Jess.... and Ster for 5 days.....76 hours.......4,560 minutes.....273,600 seconds of pure BLISS!!!  It has been too long since we have done something fun with family!!

After our fun weekend I'm going to stay with one of my best friends Shelli. I haven't seen her in like a million years! I super excited to just to see her and talk with her in person! After my lovely visit with Shelli....I will be on a plane to OHIO!!

Yes, I get to go to OHIO!!! I get to see my family...and finally meet my niece Natalie. She is almost a year, so the visit is a little over DUE!  Sad part is my hubby has to stay home to make the bucks so I can spend it! Thanks sugar for working so hard to pay for my FUN!

Yeah to a great start of summer! Thursday just can't come soon enough!

P.S Here are some pics that I just found on my camera....oldies but goodies!

ha ha that's so funny about the snow. We did that once, but didn't turn around and couldn't walk for a few days after because our feet were in such pain. Good choice on the curry and movie!
