Happy Days


Hi Everyone,
I'm so happy you've come over for a visit.  If you've been following along this week I've been sharing my staycation with you. Each year my son brings his beautiful daughters to visit Grandpa and I. To see our weekend's activities. (Saturday) Granddaughters Tea Here and (Sunday) Our Family Photo Morph. Here.
Okay, Now that we're all caught up with the weekend activities,
lets get ready for our camping trip.
The truck is packed and it looks like the 'Grapes of Wrath'-I didn't go to the lake until the campsite was all set up.
 (Good move)
The lake was beautiful with the evening sun setting over the mountains.
Whiskeytown Lake is only 22 minutes from my house. I am truly blessed.

Just in time for some campfire dessert.

I spent the night sleeping over in a tent with the top of tent open to the stars. The weather was wonderful and in the morning I woke up to the smell of delicious bacon being cooked by my son. We needed a fabulous breakfast before our day of activities got started.
And the beautiful lake. The ducks swimming calmly across the inlet.
Off to a great start! Tubing behind the patio boat. 
The girls are having a great time.
Four tired girls resting on the back of the patio boat after a long day playing on the lake. 
On Wednesday everyone packed up camp and came home for a nice hot shower.
After dinner they headed down to the river for an outdoor concert.
Did I go? Nope, Grandpa and I stayed home in the cool air-conditioned house...and I needed a rest.
The next day they were ready to go again. 
Waterworks Park ~ here we come~
Down the raging river we go.
Up the stairs to another exciting ride.
On our staycations or vacations we always have ice cream at THREE in the afternoon. 
It's very refreshing and it's a great stabilizer until dinner.
Very Cute
After the day at Waterworks we went to Turtle Bay Exploration Park to see our granddaughter receive a pin for her hours of volunteer work this summer. 
She will always remember the summer of 2013. 
Good Job!
And now it's time to say goodbye to a beautiful summer week with the most amazing wonderful girls.
Thank you ladies! I love you
