Our random, yet highly entertaining, romp through the highly visited and less explored parts of life.

Corn- You gotta love it. This past week Ben and I went out to one of the local stake farms where they had corn up for free picking! Once we had more corn than we knew what to do with, Ben decided that we needed to have roasted corn......so, of course to have the finest roasted corn we needed to go camping! Not to mention the fact that this could potentially be the last time we go camping with just the two of us for a long, long time (unless anyone wants to volunteer babysitting services next summer :) ).
We cruised on up to Buckhorn Canyon, where we camped last year at Halloween. After securing a great little campsite Ben set up camp and I got dinner going. D.O. potatoes and chicken with delicious roasted hatch chilies and roasted corn. Mmmm. We then spent the next few hours poking around in the campfire, talking, and enjoying the beautiful fall-like weather.
The next morning, after a good nights rest we of course went fishing! (yes, I know everyone thinks I am crazy going camping right now, but we brought along a futon mattress to sleep on!)
Ben caught a bunch of cute little brookies, that are probably being eaten right this minute by some of our friends. They were the kinds in a little stream that you can watch swim up and bite! I had a few bites on my flies which were super fun to watch, but alas ultimately got skunked, as Ben calls it. Ben perservered a lot longer with fishing than I did, as usual. I enjoyed sitting on the edge of the stream carving wood and reading a good book. Camping was a blast as usual!
For those of you experienced with camping with babies, do you have any good advice? What age you started them camping at, where/how the baby sleeps in the tent, etc? If so- feel free to let me know. We have certainly come up with some ideas of our own, but haven't had the chance to try them out and we would love any helpful hints, even if it means bringing earplugs :).
