Deaver Reservoir for Spring Break Anyone?
We decided to take the children out to Deaver Reservoir. Neil and Matthew were camping there in January (that's another story, camping in January doesn't sound fun to me). They thought it was really cool to walk on the ice. We thought everyone might enjoy an outing so off we went. Dallin was so excited to fly a kite, and a frozen lake seemed like a great place to do it. (No trees or other obstacles to get in your way). Matthew and Neil had already learned that there is plenty of wind at Deaver. (Oh that is part of the other story, coming home at 4:00 am when the wind destroys your tents). It was too bad that Dallin slept through most of our winter picnic. He did wake up and get to fly the kite a little. Lydia slept until right before we were ready to leave. I was glad of that because it was too cold and smokey to have a little baby out there. We had a good time together. It is cool to look down through the holes in the ice and see the bottom of the lake. Matthew really wanted to ice fish, but had to settle for roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire.
