Chelan details

Hangin' with his cousin Brooklyn at camp

Swimming in Lake Chelan

Pasty white as always. :)

Brooklyn looking beautiful

Movie night at Shane and Erin's trailer

First waterslide ever

Chillin with Uncle Pat

Loving swimming for the first time in his life (typically he is nervous in the water)

Let's see those balls!

Bacon vodka may be in effect here

Jason and I have long been biased about Lake Chelan (a popular camping destination in the middle of Washington State). Too developed. Too many people. Not enough wilderness.

But this year we joined my brother for a few nights. He does a Chelan trip every summer with his family and several of his close friends.

What we learned is that vacations are no longer about me and Jason. They are about Truman. And while Truman can appreciate a remote mountaintop ridge in the middle of nowhere, he would rather be swimming in a crowded lake with his cousin. He would rather be getting ice cream at the waterslide park and burger baskets at the drive through with a bunch of older kids.

Jason and I had a blast because my brother, his wife Christa, Brooklyn and their closest friends are some of the nicest, most hilarious people we have ever met. We felt so lucky to be included and we plan to be back next year.
