Sacramento Heat!

Family, Vacation No Comments

We left the beautiful mountain temps of high 70’s/low 80’s on Monday AM and drove over to my Mom’s new place in Sacramento….just in time for the inferno to strike. 

Thankfully Mom has a pool – that we took advantage of when the temps hit almost 110 degrees. 

Grandma D is totally enjoying having her grandkids in town and Eric is cooking up a storm for the family. It’s been a good visit so far (except for Gracee’s night time schedule. She is no longer sleeping through the night. It’s killing me). 

The boys are keeping Auntie Nancy SUPER busy. She is going to need a vacation from them. 

Tonight we went to Ferrel’s for ice cream — my first time there. We had so much fun! 


We are looking forward to the BBQ/Party on the 4th and then fireworks at the park just down the street. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ‰

On the Road Again

The theme of this summer vacation will have to be “Wingin’ It”. 

We thought we would spend a few more days at Silver Lake – maybe stay until Wednesday. But – by Saturday night, Joe & I both had reached our max. The thought of having some help with the kids was sounding a whole lot better than roughing out another few nights. 

The boys had a blast with all their new friends. They rode bikes together, made secret hide-outs, toasted marshmallows, and hunted crawdads in the river. 
Here are some pictures from our time at Silver Lake. 




Monday AM…time to leave the mountain temps and head to the 100+ degree temps in Sacramento 😁😳😁😳

Back at Silver Lake

We left Mammoth yesterday morning and headed right over to Silver Lake to see if we could snag a ‘first-come-first-serve’ campsite. We have never stayed across the street at the dry campground (no hookups) so we weren’t sure how it would go. 

We found a spot that was available for 1 night only and parked right away. 


It’s amazing — as soon as we opened the door and let the boys out with their bikes — they had already found a pack-of-kids to play with. I asked where the boys went and Joe said “They are running around playing Lord of the Flies”!πŸ˜€ So glad there were other kids to play with, since we aren’t camping with our group from SD. 

We had hamburgers for dinner and plotted our move for the morning. We scoped out a few possible sites that would be available at some time before noon. 

Joe found is two options in the AM and we moved before lunch time. 




   The weather is pretty nice and the girls (Gracee & I) are starting to feel better. 

We will probably be here the next 4-5 nights. Should be fun πŸ˜€
