Sheesh. July is over. And our sad little blog has sat unattended for a month. I have some decent excuses: 2 summer online classes, projects at work becoming more intense (plus my annual performance review), baby sister visiting for 2 weeks, still getting settled into our house, plus the normal chores of cooking, cleaning, pet care, and down time – wait, what is down time? I suppose we should start back up with where we left off…
June 24-26: Dudes Camping/Fishing trip for Shaun, his brother Grant, and his dad – trip report to follow.
July 1-3: Shaun went to Venice Beach for the weekend with his college bro’s.
July 8-10: Shaun & Jen backpacked in Carson-Iceberg Wilderness off Highway 4. In the snow. Trip report to follow.
July 12: Jen’s little sister Maddison (11 years old) flew into town.
July 16-17: Shaun, Jen, & Maddie backpacked to Burgson Lake in Carson-Iceberg Wilderness off Highway 108. Trip report to follow.

Yes, that is a man being catapulted into the air by dolphins. Madness!
July 21: Jen & Maddie went to Yosemite. Later that night we went to the Stanislaus County Fair.

There you have it. Now on to August…
