great company
homemade cookies (2 kinds!)
roasting starbursts?
protecting everyone from the wrath of Gavin's sticks
Hunter's bike getting demolished by white trash campers- hey "that's what you get"
a rain storm that most people could not sleep thru
a massive pancake flip
Calvin's treasure of a caterpillar nest
fishing and swimming off the dock
Halle catching her traditional camping toad- and Ella completely stressed that it would die!

Happy 4th of July!

We had a fun Independence Day!!! We started out doing the Baldwin Park bike parade followed by a pancake breakfast. At around 6 we headed over to Osborne's for some swimming, fishing, lots of eating- smoked salmon, steak, hot dogs, lots of salad, watermellon, brownies... lots of food. Then a night of fire works, a bonfire- quickly followed by a firetruck showing up with 4 firemen. What's more American than a firetruck on the 4th of July?!
