Stone Reservoir

The end of June/first part of July we spent our vacation time camping at Stone Reservoir.  We had the campground from Saturday till Thursday.  Lill and Alicyn came up for the weekend, and Char came over, but on the weekdays, Dirk came with his boys, and Meagan came over with the kids and Ben, and Char and we really enjoyed the boat and the water.  

It was a much needed break from reality.  Things with the new house aren't going quite as well as planned but that is for another post.  Makae is not doing so hot - another post, etc.  Anyway.... it was nice to relax, spend time with family and just be together with no urgent business to attend to.  Jared came with us and was just part of the family.  He has spent most of the summer so far with us.  It has been nice.

And away he goes.

All was great till we got home.  I pulled the boat and Shawn the trailer.  I didn't turn wide enough and the boat trailer hit the fence post and knocked it out of alignment and bend a post.  It also scratched up the boat in a place.  I told Shawn I am never pulling the boat again.  If he really wants to go camping over Labor Day, he will have to get it fixed.

Other than that we did have a great time.  I especially love it when the little kids come.  Char had Olin as his sister was just born.  He and Rhone get so excited for the tubes and such.  It is really quite fun to watch them.  Dirks kids has a great time as well.  Ben (Dirk's Ben) loved the tube.  What a nice week.
