A day at the dam
It wasn't raining, a small miracle in itself, so we grabbed the beach stuff and went out the door. We stopped by to see Randy's parents first. They had a bunch of wasps building nests on their garage and needed help getting rid of them. Nasty creatures. We went for lunch and were off to Parker Dam. It's only about 20 or so miles away and the new car can do that on less than a gallon of gas. Isn't it sad we had to think about the cost to drive for a much-needed day off?
One of the medicines I take makes me very susceptible to sunburns, so I stayed mainly under the beach umbrella, but really enjoyed the day just watching the kids and taking photos. They rented kayaks and went swimming. Randy had the video camera and used that. They were still talking about how much fun they had when I fell asleep.
It was such a relaxing day, with smiles and laughing. We need more of those. I already have the beach bags re-packed and ready for our next chance to go.
