Camping at Inks Lake State Park

 Last Thursday we had planned to leave to go camping at Inks Lake.  Only I wasn't very prepared and was slow getting things ready and then Isabel and Nicolas had fevers that day.  So after finishing packing the van, we ended up staying the night at our house.  But the next morning, their fevers were gone and we decided to go camping!   We went up to Inks Lake State Park.  It was really pretty.
 Our lovely means of transportation for those who haven't seen it yet.  We arrived around noon, set up camp, ate lunch and then went swimming.  It was so hot.  And that's why we picked the camping spot we did.
 We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening in Inks Lake.

 Ah, I just want to squish him and squeeze him and kiss him!!!

 Hee. Hee.
 Unbeknownst to us at the time, Isabel had a fever the day before because she had strep throat--honest, she didn't complain much about her throat hurting! And in this picture, she had just started breaking out in a rash due to Scarlet Fever.  It really didn't slow her down this much, despite what this picture might suggest.  I could have posted several others of her running around like crazy.

 It would have been fun to rent a kayak or canoe, but this time we didn't.

Some local wildlife.
Elena found this one.  There was also a good sized lizard by our tent too.
I love his chubbiness!

A deer walked right by our tents.  The kids kind of scared them, but they stayed just 15 feet from us for quite a while.
