Flaming Gorge

We had a fun time this past weekend up at Flaming Gorge. We went up with Vinnie's family and some friends who have boats and motor homes. Rocco loved boating and camping (if you can call it camping in a 38 ft. motor home with all the necessities of home) although he wasn't too hot on the life jacket. Dominic is an awesome boater, once the motor kicked on in the boat Dominic was OUT and once the motor was shut off he was wide awake again ready to play. However, Dominic wasn't appreciating the water temp.

We ate like royalty this last weekend. My poor family, we don't eat this well at home. Corby and Vinnie's cousin Brian were incredible. We had quite the spread. Breakfasts were eggs (Fassio of course) bacon, sausage, pancakes, juice. Dinner consisted of lemon pepper and garlic sauteed shrimp for appetizers, then steaks and ribs, sauteed mushrooms and onions, steamed veggies, corn on the cob, baked beans, funeral potatoes, macaroni salad, and garlic bread. This was not how I am used to eating camping. Growing up we had cold cereal and muffins for breakfast and tin foil dinners. Corby (the one in the apron) I had named the Flaming Gorge Guru. His camping cooking equipment is nicer than my kitchens. Dominic's new favorite food is corn on the cob. He had no teeth and managed to eat 3 cobs.

We beached on Saturday. The water was nice, don't listen to Dominic. Rocco caught crawdads (sp?) and got great use out of his water guns. Honey is the Larsen's dog, she is an awesome dog. She kept Dominic entertained.

Look at you go, you scrapbooking guru you! Great job. The vacation sounds fun. We could really use one of those soon. Perhaps I will just have to plan one.
