Big Foot, Lake Wenatchee.

Good morning, it is Sunday.

We are back from camping at Lake Wenatchee. We had a great time! There are plenty of pictures to do the talking, so let's move on:

On the way over to Lake Wenatchee on Thursday, we stopped in Snohomish to watch Preston play in his first game of the Big Foot Tournament. Maren stayed home with Preston for the weekend of soccer. Preston's team won two games, lost one game and didn't move on to the final day. Preston hung out at the soccer fields (tons of folks camp there for this event) and had a great time.

Lillie, Hansen and I continued over the pass to Lake Wenatchee. The weather was great and we had tons of fun:

The group hanging out at the mouth of the river
Hansen and Alex on floaties.
We invited Alex, Claire, and Miles to sleep in our tent. Yes, I had 5 kids and myself in one big tent. We all survived just fine, may not have slept too much, but I got to hear some very interesting stories.
The foursome checking out the campgrounds searching for treasure. The kids enjoyed finding interesting rocks and breaking them to see how they sparkle.
The big rock is always a favorite.
This picture makes it look very big...and it is plenty big. This year a neighbor camper teenager tore her foot up wearing flip flops on the big rock, but she was out and about later so it must have not been too bad. Just a little reminder to be careful even when camping.

The evening fire. Plenty of smores and roasted marshmallows.
Avery playing in the dirt. I think she may have missed a spot! Nope.

At the playground.
It was very windy at the end of the trail. Lillie and Claire were using their towels as parachutes. Here Lillie is flying slowly to the ground. Check out the view of the lake and the mountains. Lake Wenatchee is a beautiful place.
Here the kids are just hanging out having fun. I don't think they even missed not having a TV for a few days.
Miles learned how to ride his bicycle without training wheels this weekend! Jack also enjoyed being pushed around on the bike and the scooters.
Birthday girls! We were celebrating Sue, Carol, and Melanie's birthdays.
And lastly, my new FB profile pic for the day. Relaxing with a Mike's hard lemonade at a warm campsite is not so bad.

See you tomorrow.

I wish we could've been there! Aurora would've loved playing in the dirt with Avery.
