We headed out camping on Thursday to Lake Stampede in the Sierra Mountains near Lake Tahoe. It was beautiful surroundings and perfect weather. We had LOTS of great food, a few loungin' afternoons, fishing and boat rides in Dad's spiffy new fishing boat. Kel was a trooper and LOVED being dirty. He liked the chipmunks ['chi-mon'] and deer. Little early bird Kel would still wake up at 5:30AM. Too cold for me to want to get out of the sleeping bag -- therefore, THANK GOODNESS for the portable DVD player to watch an hour of Sesame Street before really getting up for the day. We met several of Dad's hilarious co-workers and their families. Thank you for all the fun Dad & Candise. Overall - great trip in the great outdoors!
[I was SO GLAD to get a shower, hose Kel off & a comfy bed at the end of the weekend.]
