Black Butte Camping Trip 2003

 May 9 - May 12, 2003

This used to be an island where people parked their boats and played in the water.  I guess it's a good thing the water level is high!




The Black Butte.

Daddy and Lisa.



Me, freezing.







This hammock has lasted since Pat and Amanda were this age and the kids still love it. 







Bug and Daddy took Mr. Big to fill up with gas.  Tone was so sad and forlorn, she set up her little chair to wait for Daddy to return.


You think these two are related?  Not Maggie. 




Nic hanging around in the hammock. 
















Pochitoes took a couple of spills on her bike and banged up both elbows, but that didn't stop her!








Natty and her favorite thing to do...pester Daddy.


Nickel Pickle and Daddy.


Tonesto, Elsea and Bugger.








I think I'll paint this one day. 








Grandma helps Nat roast a marshmallow as Nic and Grandpa look on. 


Now she gives it a go on her own. 


Bug, take the picture already!

...before the ride home.  There's Boaty Boat hooked on to Denny and Sharkey hooked on to Mr. Big.  We take EVERYTHING, including the kitchen sink.
