Burraston's Pond

Friday night I took he girls of the family, except Mom, camping. Janey and Ellie have been wanting to go camping with me since they frequently see me going out the door with the scouts on numerous camping adventures. I also looked forward to this as a chance to slow things down and sound some time with my daughters.

Anyway, we scheduled it and talked about it for a number of days previous to the event and spirits were high as we set off Friday night. We asked Grandpa G if he wanted to join us on the camp and he accepted our invitation to Burrastons Ponds in Mona, Utah.

The evening started off with a dinner of chili and chips and s'mores for dessert. Of course we had to have s'mores. After we set up camp and a had our dinner we did a little fishing. It turned out that we would only have one fish on the line the entire trip, and it broke our line. Anyway, we decided to go crayfish fishing at night and had fun catching a few and eating them for a bedtime snack. They look exactly like small lobster and taste like sweet shrimp. The portions are very small, but tasty.

A good time was had by all and we look forward to doing it again.
