|On our way ...near Sweetwater Summit|
|We were surprised it looked so smoky..|
|Bridgeport Lake is so full!|
We got set up and the boys went fishing for a bit. It was definitely hot over there. The sun is so intense and the sky so blue and the mountains are just awesome, one of my favorite places in the world. :) Got together a tuna fish lunch and then we sat on the side the trailer in the shade. I had my kindle and then couldn't keep my eyes open and had a little nap. The boys came back and joined us and had a late lunch. Then they decided to try fishing once again minus Mason. Seth caught one and threw it back.

|Our view from the campsite..just can't get enough of that|
Ken bar b q ued some awesome hamburgers and I made some oven fries. It was too windy to have a fire so we just enjoyed the night on the less windy side of the trailer. Eventually we got the boys set up on the reclining chairs and a cot. We had a tent set up but they wanted to sleep outside.
|Yes, there was bacon for the burgers..He started them here and|
moved them to the bar b q
|3 of my favorite grandsons..Aaron, Seth and Mason|
|The sun is setting|
Yesterday morning (Tuesday) it was cool enough we let the heater run a cycle in the trailer. No internet, so no visiting with our friends. After a cup of coffee Ken took his 2nd one out and started a fire. No wind. Funny how at 0600 you need the heater and a fire and by 0900 you're hot and trying to avoid the sun! The boys got up and wanted french toast, bacon and eggs. Your wish is my command..hah. Love the new Blackstone Grill we got, it holds lots of food at one time and the more we use it the more non stick it's becoming.
|Looking out the trailer window..they're still sleeping..|
|Squirrel...Really it's chicken breast, but the story got started how|
Ken killed a squirrel and cooked it up yesterday morning. Aaron and
Mason believed it until this morning..
|Got this little cooker from Eric for Mother's Day, cooks quickly|
and delicious! It would make a really nice sausage patty in

|Seth, Aaron and Mason going fishing..|
The boys took off in Seth's Jeep and headed for the lake to try their hand at fishing. No luck but they were gone a couple of hours. After a bit they headed out again down the road. Ken and I ran to the little store up the road to get some ice. I picked up the stuff for "Smorfs"..(Smores)..Then we took a drive to the end of the road, just because we like looking at the beautiful Twin Lakes. Not too long after we got back the boys came back and it was time for a late lunch. Seth caught a good sized trout and threw it back, not many fish caught this trip.

|The water is so clear and beautiful|
|We found where the kids were fishing..|
|The end of the road..Private campground and marina|
Ken started a fire in the evening and bar b q ued some more burgers, chicken and a couple of hot dogs. YUM! I had made potato salad earlier in the day, so we enjoyed our dinner. Then ice cream and smorfs for dessert.

This morning it was bacon, pancakes and eggs for the boys. Again the Blackstone was wonderful. Ken set up a little outside kitchen for me so it kept the mess from inside. Once breakfast was done the boys loaded the Jeep and off they went. I heard this afternoon that they made it home safely. Always good to know.
We hung around a bit, took showers and washed dishes etc. We were home just about 1300. It's 99 degrees as I write this, so I'm glad we did a lot of the work at the campground. I was able to get the boys rooms cleaned and some things put away here at home.
Looking forward to the next trip with the grandsons in July!
Not sure what's in store for the rest of the week, so guess we'll see. Have a great evening!
