Here’s a ton of pics from our week in Santa Cruz in April 2012. We also hit up San Jose and San Francisco while we were up there.
Here’s some pictures of this summer’s trip to the lake.
We had a great time in Padre Canyon, little fishing but plenty of swimming an a little exploring. Some great weather too.
A bit late here, but I’m catching up on old posts.
Glen Canyon Dam, Lake elevation is 3652 feet. Full pool is 3700.
Eric’s first fish of the trip, a sunfish off the side of the houseboat caught with salmon eggs.
Journey’s End (houseboat), the lake rose over 4 feet during our stay.
Heading off to Rainbow Bridge. 20 miles up lake.

This ledge that the kids are jumping from is under water when we leave in a week.

Dino footprints from underneath, on the ledge, pretty cool!
Zooming in, there are the footprints.
Zooming in some more, dino footprints.
Kids, pointing to the dino footprints, took the boat 15 miles each way up last chance to see these.

Sean started attacking the boys with water guns from the water behind the houseboat, so they built a fort to withstand the attack. Armed with squirt guns, water ballons, buckets, etc.
Eric’s party, trampoline and water balloons.

I finally got some pictures and words together for our trip to the Redwoods in June, it was a great trip.
In preparation of our big Redwood trip this Summer, we headed to the beach in our trailer. Stayed at Refugio SB and El Capitan SB. I recommend Refugio over the other, but both we nice.
Here’s the pics.
Here’s a couple shots from our skiing trip to Snow Valley up near Big Bear. It was a great day, snowed most of the day after we got there, took a long time to get off the mountain, but all the kids learned to ski.
Some more pictures from September…
Wow. I haven’t posted in a while, I meant to, but the Smith Household has been busy as usual. Here are some random shots from the Summer.
