Green Peter Lake

On August 9th we went camping for the first time in three years!  We returned to my brothers' favorite spot at Green Peter Lake outside of Sweet Home, Oregon where we day-camped last year.  It's accessible only by boat.  In true Studer fashion we brought a little rain with us, but overall the weather was pretty decent.  The kids did fairly well sleeping in a tent and really loved running around the campground, exploring, playing with salamanders, and throwing rocks in the lake.  Desmond got his first inner tube ride pulled behind the boat.  He would have done it for hours if we let him.  Although camping with two little ones isn't exactly relaxing, I enjoyed the quiet nature all around us and a few extra hands to help wrangle the kids.

We also celebrated Davin's 36th birthday.  I got him a sodastream that's been getting daily use and some LuminAIDs which are really cool solar powered lights that we got to use that night.
