Donner Lake

A few years ago Scott did a race across Donner Lake in CA. This past week we were visiting there and our family got in the water this time instead of Scott. Don't you love the sign on the beach?? Hmm....I don't know about you but I had NO desire to get in that freezing water!!

Kids will be kids though and they were willing to brave the cold temperatures and they did! We got a photo to prove how brave (or crazy) they all were!!

The two K's before they decided to brave the cold water! Then after getting their clothes mostly wet we decided to change them into suits!

Hat girls....come on, we were camping...what else can you expect??

Donner Lake is a beautiful place!! We were grateful to be able to visit even for a short's just beautiful up by Lake Tahoe!

Donner Lake Part 2

So we also visited the memorial at Donner Lake. Here's the family photo....
This memorial was astonishing how tall it was! I couldn't even fathom what it would be like to have snow piled up that high! Wow! The monument was built as tall as the snow was that the Donner Party were trapped in. Wow!

Just the kids...

The Two K's together....

Cameron at the museum by the Jedediah Smith display. He learned about Jedediah in his 4th grade class when he learned about Mountain Men.

Homemade Teeter Totter!


Can you see these two boys being sleepyheads the other morning? Cam and Brad shared a tent and they thought that was pretty fun!

Who are these sleeping beauties....??

Dad and Dallyn playing Othello together enjoying our time in the mountains!!

Sitting around the campfire in our jammies...just enjoying the morning!!

Yep...continuing in the relaxing we are playing games together in our jammies!! Dallyn taught me to play othello and he totally beat me!

More game playing fun...Angee gave me Disney Apples to Apples and we had a great time playing that too! Apples to Apples is a family favorite so getting the Disney version was just awesome!!

The two 7 year old buddies....our first camping trip together was when Julia was 3 months old and I was pregnant with Dallyn!! Wow...look how much they have grown!! We are so blessed to have such great friends!

My youngest brother Jason was married on June 22nd to Allison Read in the Draper, Utah temple. Here are some photos from their special day.

Great-Grandpa Black went walking with little Tyler while we were waiting for the bride and groom to come out. It was so cute so I had to snap a few photos of their interactions together!!

He sure kept Great Grandpa on his toes!! =)
