I was so worried all week about setting up my tent by myself...But, like everything else...the worry was way worse than the situation.
I took a ton of pictures, but I'm only going to post Littlebear pictures. I really should be more careful of other ppl's kids.
This is the view from the door of my tent. This campground is so nice. Lake Mead is so pretty this time of year.
Our Den Leader brought her dogs. Littlebear adored this little French Bulldog. Papabear likes English bulldogs, but I really liked this little guy. He's the right size....no snot....and cute!
We walked down (1.5 miles) to the shore. Here is the actual conversation:
"PLEASE, Mom...can I go swimming?"
"No, Littlebear, it's freezing and I don't want to sleep with someone who smells like lowtide."
"AWWW Mom, you're no fun!!"
This one is the wallpaper on my desktop. I love his little grin.
