We had decided that Tuesday would be the day we visited the lakes. We woke up to rain, but who is going to let a little rain stop them? (In retrospect, I probably should have.)
We climbed into the Jeep and a truck with 4 wheel drive and off we went. Over the mountains, through the forests, on muddy dirt roads.
We first went to one lake and I have no idea what it is called but it was pretty. But raining.
Notice the ponchos and hoodies?
So we decided to go over to Lost Lake, where we'd have a little picnic and maybe hike around. I took some photos while we were looking around.
And there was a little chipmunk nearby...
It really was gorgeous.
When we got back to town, we went to a pizza place for appetizers and beverages. The kids were sitting at one table and all the girls went to the restroom together. Left this poor little guy all alone.
That night we went to a chocolate shop and just got regular old Blue Bell ice cream for dessert. It was awesome. And without cayenne. On the way back, there was a big metal sculpture near the house, so group portrait time!
