[ at our wedding location...where our families stayed ]
[ at our wedding...tent city ]
So a year ago...for our wedding week matt and I chose to camp in our tent. Some of our friends also chose to camp...see the tent city picture above. Our families and bridal party were all able to sleep in cabins and the lodge...and we could have too. But we love camping. Plus why wouldn't we want a little space of our own in the woods for our wedding?! So for our anniversary when trying to plan for what to do to celebrate we wanted to go camping. And we did. And it was glorious.

We went up the north fork of the boise river exploring new territory for us, with our 3 goonies (dogs) and chose a nice quaint spot along the river. We played disc golf, had a sweet little bluff to have our wine overlooking the river, and even a perfect campfire. We woke up to rain....which was super relaxing. And thank goodness for our stint living in portland...we know all about camping in LOTS of rain. We reminisced about our wedding last year, what we plan to accomplish in year two of being married, and just how good life really is. It was a perfect anniversary.
[our camping spot, not too shabby right?!]

[ my throw...you might be able to see the little basket off in the distance. For the "course" matt set up, this was our "tee box".]
[matt and the goonies looking for his disc that he threw (lost) in the woods. If you want to know...mine was rather close to the basket, which was pure luck.]

On a side note...for all of these pictures of our recent camping trip I chose to take my little cannon digital camera. I was scared to take my DSLR camera. But gosh, I can really tell the picture quality difference and I wish these memories were captured with my DSLR. Do you all take your DSLR everywhere you go?! even dirty/wet camping?! Quite a dilemma.
