Just got back from a weekend at Ernie and Sally’s. The memory card in my camera was getting full so I decided to dump it to my hard drive. While thumbing through the images I came across this priceless one of Jimmy tieing Sally’s shoes for her (or something like that!) and couldn’t wait to share it.
This morning Jimmy and I got up as usual. As usual, I gave him his breakfast and changed his pants. After hanging out for a bit I put him in his play pen to play for a bit while I checked my email. I noticed about 10 minutes later that he was being aweful quiet and went to investigate. I guess he decided he hadn’t had enough sleep last night. I couldn’t resist snapping a shot or 2…….
As usual this past Memorial Day Weekend the Lee/Nachreiner clan took it’s annual Lake Almanor get away. For the past 5 years we’ve been staying at Lassen View Resort. Unfortunately the great folks who run the place have decided to retire so this was our last stay at their fine establishment.
Here is a brief photo journal of our weekend:

We always have a blast on our Memorial Day trips and this year was no exception! We sure are sorry to see the folks from Lassen View hang it up. They did a tremendous job of running the place. Hopefully, we can find another resort to stay at next year so our little 10 year tradition will stay alive.
Ernie and Sally recently took a vacation to Belize. Naturally they had to spend a little time chasing bonefish. Ernie actually caught a fish a good bit bigger than this one but the picture isn’t very good due to some gunk on the guide’s lense (yeah, I know, that’s what they all say)
