Blaine and Felicia off to Cancun

While the kids are with grandparents, we've decided to take a quick trip to Cancun. Obviously we'll see Chichen Itza and other sites, do some snorkeling, take a jungle adventure, perhaps some parasailing (if I can get up the nerve), etc.

As usual we'll take our camera and camcorder and see if we can't post some images after we return on August 15th. Check back for that...

Edit: We are back safely. Only minor delays with the increased security at the airports. We had to transfer all our liquids to a single bag that was then put in checked luggage. We skipped the parasailing and jungle tour but went to Tulum, Ek Balam and Isla Mujeras instead.

Spectacular Family Camping Trip to Crater Lake

A few years back we had planned a camping trip to Crater Lake National Park but were turned back at the entrance because a large fire had closed the park. That year we headed to Lava Beds National Monument instead.

Never deterred, we decided that Crater Lake was not to be missed so we chose to make that our family camping destination this year. The great hiking, camping and spectacular views were well worth it.
