We took a quick day trip to Bass Lake today. It's soooo pretty there. We didn't get going until about noon because we had some errands to do (a lot). Bella had school so it was just Blake, Emett and I. I wished Bella was there but it was a good opportunity for us to spend some one on one time with Blake. He slept most of the way but kept waking up and crying... I thought it was weird but didn't know what it was but was suspicious that he may be car sick. We made some stops off the road here and there to look at the big casino (from the outside), one of Emett's childhood homes in the mountains and the Pine's resort (mainly because we were trying to get to the lake). I day dreamed about one day being able to rent a cabin there and have a family vacation during the summer. It's so beautiful and smells like new air up there. We couldn't figure out how to get to the lake for the life of us but as soon as we gave up to head back home we found an entrance!

As soon as we pulled up Blake yelled "Ocean!" (ADORABLE). He was excited to get out of the car and explore. We ran down to the shore. He dipped his toes in the water and smiled, he was really happy. He and Emett skipped rocks and whatever else they could find to throw in, which Blake loooves to do. We actually had to take our big pool down because all Blake wanted to do was throw stuff in it to watch it float, so he was in to it.
To add to the amazing view were a flock of geese and their babies walking around... they were so cute.
It was an amazing time. We had to head back home after about an hour. We got in the car and had driven for abut 10 minutes when Blake puked. I'm not sure if he had gotten car sick or what since he seems fine now but it was gross and I felt so bad for him. We did some damage control/clean up and continued home. As soon as we got out of the mountains it got reallly windy and reallly dusty. It turns out there was a dust storm in our town and the wind was super strong which is typical for this area.
So that was our day.. it was a great one. The End.
