Jellystone Park - It's a Yurt!

In August right after school started we spent the weekend with our neighbors at Jellystone Park in Larkspur. It was so nice to unplug without any commitments to tend to. Sit by the fire, drink, laugh, hang out and watch the kids play around. It was a really fun and relaxing trip! 

We opted for a Yurt and Shelley's fam got a little cabin near us. I had no clue what a yurt was. It turned out to be perfect for our big family. A giant round dorm room.

Later that night we came back to relax on the giant pillow and watch a meteor shower. Along with the entire campground.

Golf carts were the way to go!! 

Good old fashion fun. Smore's.

Our make shift kitchen. John pulled out the griddle, whipped up scrambled eggs, pancakes and bacon. Good stuff!

One afternoon it rained and hailed for an hour. After that our friends had an amazing lake front view next to their cabin! We totally should have gotten our swim stuff on and beach towels out for an amazing vacation picture around the brown lake lol. Paradise! 

The men relaxing waterside. Taking in that amazing lake view.

Hayride with Mr. Soapy. The kids learned about the history of Jellystone and then got to nail this guy with water balloons at the end. Our friend Matt tossed a cooler of water since we ran out of balloons. The lid accidentally broke off and he almost knocked Soapy out with the entire cooler. It was quite a hilarious mistake, we'll never forget it. Soapy wasn't hurt, thank goodness.

It wasn't a total roughing it, tent camping kind of trip. This is was more up my alley of "camping".

They even had karaoke. John gave an epic performance of Journey. He was so into it (the pic tells it all) But ooops.... it was in the wrong key... We'll never forget that either! I'm never aloud to share the video.  

Playing a washer toss game. Matt came straight to the campground from his lawyer job. Forgetting to pack something, he had the fanciest shoes in the park. Dress shoes for the win. All-weekend-long. Haha!

Not really connected to the camping trip. The day after I had to wash 6 sleeping bags and a ton of wet/dirty clothes. I went to a laundry mat about 10 miles away (closest I could find) as I looked out the window I had to do a double take. Not a common occurrence around our parts. Funny stuff! Her husband came shortly behind her on an equally tiny ATV.
