July 4th weekend, we went camping on Donner Summit. JP’s sister and her boyfriend own 300+ acres on the Yuba River, so we headed up there for a couple days. It was nice to go “on vacation” only 25 minutes from home.
The Yuba River was perfect for fishing, swimming, and doing long “water hikes”.
Stephen and Avian each found real arrowheads while hiking in the granite.
Gerard taught the kids how to drive a tractor.
We had a blast camping, and the next day, I met Stephen and Avian at the Tahoe Donner Marina after work and we fished until almost dark.
On Tuesday, I got Stephen in to see my podiatrist as his foot was looking worse. The good news is, the doctor was able to clean out the infection, the bad news is, it is MRSA and he is on crutches for 3-4 weeks with no swimming.
Fortunately Stephen is a trooper and learned to use the crutches quickly.
We had a few playdates to take his mind off of all the things he COULDN’T do anymore…
