a great vacation

It was such a great vacation that I've been home for a week and haven't blogged yet. I guess since I'm not working this summer, you could say I'm still on vacation. We had a memorable trip up to Mammoth, CA. My parents joined us for the first time on this journey. We had a beautiful condo to stay in and it couldn't have been a better trip. If you're not familiar with the area we went to, it's on the eastern side of the Sierra Mountains. Gorgeous scenery, fresh air, evergreens, stunning sunsets, amazing mountains. You get the idea. The guys had an amazing time doing some 3 generation fishing including my guys' first time on float tubes and some first attempts at fly fishing. Paca had much to teach his grandson. They're like two peas in a pod when it comes to patience. Mom and I did some sightseeing since she'd never been around the area, just had driven through. It was so fun to take her out to see such majestical sights. Of course there was lots of laughter and fun times in the mix. Mom taught me how to knit. We watched some movies, played cards, and ate out most of the time. It was so nice to get away and just enjoy our time together. I hope you're making new family memories this summer.
