Camp Hosts

Doug and I have long thought it would be fun for our family to be camp hosts and this summer it worked out to do just that.  We applied online and less than 24 hours later we were signed up.  Sabrina Camp Site in the Inyo National Forest became our home as of May 16, 2012 when Doug set up camp.  Two weeks later Chandler, Henry Wyatt and I joined him and we haven't looked back.  Our dear friends, Gail and Mark, whose home we house-sat all winter/spring, let us use their RV and voila...we've made it home.

The children enjoy the freedom of being able to fish and play along the stream that runs through the camp site as well as meeting campers who come and go each week.  Join us if you can!

Uniforms and everything!
Cleanest bathrooms this side of the Rockies.  Weekly comment cards confirm it.  :)

S'mores, fishing, and sleeping in tents...what's not to like?

Chandler helps out at a nearby horse outfitter most days...

...while Henry Wyatt enjoys fishing, hiking, and literally hanging out in trees.

Gail & Mark, our forever friends, drove us to Yosemite and Lake Sabrina to check out the camp site we would be hosts all summer.  The two-day trip was a fantastic journey into the wilderness and gave us a glimpse of the stunning beauty we would live within for five months.  Yosemite pics below...

Pram Progress - April - May

Since a picture is worth a 1000 words, I'll let these tell the story of Doug and Henry Wyatt's progress on the sailboat.

Still working on the bottom.

The bottom gets glued in place.

Upright and now it has sides!

Lookin' like a real boat


The paint job is complete!

It actually fit in the back of the van which helped get it to the lake!
