Cardboard Boat Race
To enter the boat race the kids had to build a boat with only cardboard, duct tape and paint. It was amazing how durable the girls boats were. After the race they spent quite some time just paddling around in the boats. They all had a really good time.
The girls were excited to win trophies and medals for their efforts.
Grandma and Papa had a lot of fun spending the day in such a beautiful place and seeing the girls have such a good time. After the race we had a picnic and then the kids spent the afternoon swimming.
On our way back home we took a "shortcut" over gravel mountain roads. Within just a few miles of the highway we came across a bridge that was impassable because there was three feet of water flowing over the bridge. We had to turn around and go all the way back to Dierks Lake so we could take the paved roads. On our way back to the lake we followed our GPS and were stymied three different times by locked gates across the roads. After an hour we finally made our way back.
What an awesome day!
