Lost Lake Birthday Camping Extravaganza

Every year for the past few years, we seem to go camping on my birthday. I guess it has turned into a non-intentional tradition. This year we spent Thursday and Friday night camping at Lost Lake, a place I had been dying to go for over a year. The weather was pretty cold, even during the day, but we managed to get a little bit of sun on Friday, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves canoeing on the lake, walking through the woods, and eating... lots! My sweetie even managed to bring cupcakes and candles for my birthday dessert. I took a lot of photos, but here are a few of my favorites.

Pin It Now!


  1. You little guy has an adorable mug.

    Looks like a beautiful area- I can't imagine the cold- a hat- goodness- it is so hot in the desert still!

    Happy Belated Birthday- glad you got to spend it with those who matter!

  2. I am glad you made it there, too bad it was cold. We were just there swimming a few weeks ago and the water was pretty warm.
