Visits from Family and Friends

Our Southern buddies came to visit, and ended up spending a lot of their time reading to the girls.

Camping

Lisa called Tim at work on a Friday afternoon wanting to go camping in the mountains to escape the heat. After quickly packing the car, we arrived at a campsite in Mt. Charleston in the dark at about 8:30 pm, only to find that the camp ground was completely full (Yes, we did check beforehand, but we wanted to try anyway). The camp host was kind enough to let us use his extra spot and we had a great time. The temperature was about 20 degrees less up in the mountains, so it was very comfortable.


Here the girls are playing in the rocks, this is what camping is all about.

Still playing in the rocks.


Despite the certain mess, camping would not be complete without roasting marshmallows.

Around Town

Here are pictures of some of the things we've done since arriving here in town. This at taken at the Hoover Dam. It is very beautiful, although you may be able to see the very high new bridge being built in the background, Poppy says he won't be traveling on that bridge.

The girls going for a stroll at Lake Las Vegas.

For some reason, the girls love going bowling. There is a cool new bowling alley where the gutters pop up only when its a child's turn, although Lisa would like it if they stayed up the entire time.

Misc Photos

Here are just a few miscellaneous pictures that we liked and thought we would share:

Girls just want to have fun. Here mom and the girls are with their hair braided.

Playing in the sandbox. Claire likes to put a bucket on her head and drive the 'boat'

Oh boy, Poppy really needs to have another male in the house.

The girls doing yoga, Claire seems to be a natural.
