 This past weekend we were able to go camping at Lake Mead. It is still to cold to swim in the lake, but it was perfect for hiking and fishing. Hubby taught the littles to fish and start fires (the boy scout way), their Aunt taught them to skip rocks, and we went on a lot of hikes. We were all pretty exhausted when we made it back home, but it was a weekend well spent with family. Lake Mead was a fun place to camp at. It has a quiet camp ground, with bathrooms (a requirement for me when camping), and the water was within walking distance. It also only cost $10 a day to camp there, so it ended up being a pretty thrifty weekend. Those are my favorite :) What plans do you guys and gals have for the weekend?

I also caught up on some reading this weekend and rearranged my pinterest boards:)

  1. I am reading the same book you are reading..."Cut your Grocery Bill In Half with American's Cheapest Family." I almost finish.

  2. Havent been to the lake in a while, didnt know they had camp sites. I am goint to plan a trip!

  3. Do you have any tips on how to do Easter on a budget? My boyfriend is having a hard time because last year we were able to be somewhat extravagant with holiday gifts (I know this isn't necessary, especially for Easter) but this year money is tight. I want him to feel like he's accomplishing something by giving to our children (7 and 3) but we obviously need to remain within our (very tight) means. I think he is more concerned than I children would ever be, but I understand his need to provide for our family. Any tips on how we can have a successful but frugal Easter?

    1. I have a post on How to Do Easter on a Budget below:)

  4. Great pictures. My oldest son works there at Lake Mead! Great fun.

  5. Such lovely weather and so much fun! I love your posts on all the fun things to do around Vegas!
