Camping at Mirror Lake

It's a good thing that we registered for all sorts of camping gear for our wedding, because we didn't not use ANY of it until Ben and Alex got married (yep, that would be 1.5 years after we got married.... good thing we got all that camping gear RIGHT AWAY). Ha, but the good news is Ben and Alex are outdoorsy people too, and we decided to bust out all our new gear together on a camping trip in October. We decided to go to Mirror Lake, a camp ground not far from Madison. Ben and Alex came down from the Twin Cities, and we spent the coldest October weekend grilling, hanging by the fire, toasting marshmallows, and going for hikes. It was a great weekend, our new gear is AWESOME, and although it was freezing we all had a great time (even Cooper!)

Tim sprained his ankle very badly a few days before our trip, but he came anyway (what a trooper!). He wasn't able to move very well because his ankle was so swollen, so he parked himself by the fire, read Harry Potter, and checked sports scores on his phone (rough life huh)

Pictures from our hike around the lake. It was cold, but the hike warmed us up and it was beautiful!

Trying out the pudgie pie makers, and Alex flinging flaming marshmallow across the way! Thanks for a great camping trip guys! Here's to more in 2011!
