Lake Murtaugh

Last weekend we has an absolute blast! We went to a lake nearby called Lake Murtaugh and camped Friday night and Saturday. My brother and sister-in-law came from Rexburg with my parent's boat and the canoe and we camped with the Christensen's, Brian, Dillon, Alana and George. It was a ton of fun!! We skied all night Friday til it way to dark to see and then skied some more. We had BBQ steaks, grilled corn on the cob and all kinds of fresh fruit. YUMMO!! We didn't setup a tent (we never do when we go "Truck Camping"). We always just sleep in the bed of the truck with 4 inch foams under us. NICE!! The dogs must not have been to tired and they kept us up most of the night.

The next day we skied/wake boarded/canoed all day as well. (Ty says I'm getting better at the board, but I really need a good teacher like Cassi or Ian to teach me!) The water was a little cold, but glass! This is Paula after an AMAZING slalom run!

In the morning I spent most of the time with the dogs playing fetch in the water. This was the funniest thing I've ever seen. I'd throw the toy in the water, Sniff would run/swim all the way out to get it while Scratch watched from ankle deep water and helped carry the other side of the toy back to shore once Sniff had done all the hard work. Haha! He did that every time too! Scratch's new nickname is "the lifeguard", as he is really good at watching everyone else and making sure everything is going smoothly.

Later Paul suggested we take the dogs on the tube!!
HAHA!! Oh my! Is that just hilarious or what?! They loved it and had to go out again later! Silly dogs! Look how big they are smiling!

Sorry I didn't get more pics! I was too busy having fun! Ty actually took these. I really like this one with the dogs and Bob and Laura in the back!

Ahhhh... Until next time :)


  1. It looks like you had a blast out on the lake! I can just imagine the dogs on the tube, my dogs would have jumped right off!

  2. Looks like fun! I can't believe how big your dogs are now!

  3. Ahhh your dogs got sooo much cuter than when I was out there! Anywyas I wish that I could be there to teach you more of the board! I miss the lake soooooo much more than the mountains! Although don't get me wrong I miss those to.

  4. Wow you guys are always doing something fun. Playing on the water looks so fun. the dogs seem to have enjoyed the water also.
