Oh How I Love Your Waves!

It's always nice to go to camp. It's even nicer when it's a camp that you can swim at. Recently, the father-in-law and mother-in-law moved to a new camp ground, and it is beautiful! It's right on the China Lake in China, of course. You can swim in the water and there is a long dock where you can hang your feet off of at the end. It's just lovely.

We took the kids there for the first time yesterday. We ate hot dogs, and chips, drank soda a bug juices, and we swam and collected shells. I plan to paint the shells and make necklaces out of them.

The best part was just spending tim
e outdoors and having fun together. The man looked for crayfish while me and the kiddlets combed the beach for shells. I found an unbelievable amount of oysters. Perhaps we will make oyster stew some weekend soon.

The poor baby, she couldn't do much. She pretty much sat on the boat and watched us all from her papasan seat. Maybe next year she can dip her toes in. We shall see.

One thing I absolutely love about China Lake is the lack of bugs. The whole time we were there, not one of us got bitten by a mosquito. Not once! But we did see a few very large and fluffy caterpillars, some snails, some oysters, and a few small swarms of little white flying insects. I will gladly take that over mosquitoes and black flies *shudders*.

As night time fell, we all went down to watch the sunset and when it set, we all went back up to the camper and we all snuggled up and talked about whatever came up.

I have to say, it was the perfect day. And to end a perfect day perfectly??? Impromptu fireworks from on the lake. We don't know exactly where they came from or why they happened, (possibly Labor Day?), but it was nice. They didn't last long enough to go down and get a good look, but we could see them anyway.

We got home and it was kind of sad to end the day, but we had school the next morning, or so I thought.

What do you and your family do for fun? Where do you go? Tell me about it!
