Lake Siskiyou

We drove down to CA over labor day weekend because we are INSANE. Actually, my mom planned a family reunion at the Lake and we had family come in from as far as Alaska. It was great fun. I also got to visit with a friend from junior high that lives in Redding. It was so much fun to reconnect and meet her 4 kids too. We didn't stay as long as we had planned because camping with four little ones is just plain hard, but we at least did it! (Staying at a campground with a Harley Davidson club is a BAD idea too!) We drove overnight to get there but were so worn out afterwards that we decided to not do that again on the way home. We left Mt. Shasta at 4 in the afternoon, but got a flat tire, had to find somewhere to get a trailer tire at 7 pm, stopped for dinner and didn't get home until 4 am. It didn't work out like we planned :)

The kids had so much fun and would have moved in permanently if they could. They explored the woods, rode bikes, playing in the lake, and enjoyed the campfire complete with smores. I remember loving camping too as a kid, but it was because I wasn't the one having to do all the work! I didn't get very many pictures because my hands were always full and busy, but enjoy a few we did manage to get.
