"Trinity"s and tadpoles

Over the long weekend we took the kids camping at the base of the Trinity Mountain. We went with some friends who spend a lot of time in the area and we did a day trip to the Trinity Lakes. (For those of you who don't know, our daughter's name is Trinity and her daddy has been promising her all summer that we would go to the lakes.)

We started at Little Trinity Lake first. There were little frogs everywhere along the bank. The kids must have caught about a 100. I am a huge frog fan so I enjoyed watching them hopping and swimming around and my kids chasing them. Then we went up to Big Trinity Lake. There was hundreds of tadpoles. So the kids caught about 30 of those. (We now have a glass tank filled with frogs and tadpoles!)

Before we came down from the mountain we ran into a lady who works with Alvin and our friend Scott. She was camping with her little girl who is about 6 weeks younger than my daughter. I went to introduce the two girls so they could play and it turns out her name was Trinity as well. So the two Trinity girls met at Trinity Lake. They were going to head home but decided to join us at our camp and the girls had a wonderful time.

It was a memorable weekend for all of us!
