Hot Chocolate




I'm always amazed at how hot chocolate can make the morning that much more fun.  Especially with whipped cream on top of it!  This morning was one of those mornings.  Not only for Zach (Kevin isn't awake yet), but for me.  I've been having green tea this whole vacation in the morning.  Green tea and a run for me, sticking to my plan.  Today is our last full day here though, so I am changing things up just a little bit.  I'm having hot chocolate and I think instead of a run I am going to hike up to Mammoth Rock this afternoon.  We are going to Lake George today and taking out the canoe along with a picnic lunch.

Here's a little peak into our activities over the past few days.
Our big 4th of July celebration was getting Ben and Jerry's
We drove out to Mono Lake on Saturday
Kevin and I hung out at the bottom of Main Lodge yesterday while Zach and Garrett went up on the gondola.  Kevin said it hurt his ear too much to go up.  So instead he became the world's slowest hot dog eater and took about an hour to eat one dog.  He is just about to lose his other front tooth so he tries to eat everything with his side teeth, taking mouse bites!

What a nice long holiday you've had.Have a great hike in the cooler and rarer air, because tomorrow it's back to the heat and into the swimming pool!

But it's always nice to come home....

Love, Mom

Love, grandma Dee

What wonderful pictures of your Mammoth family vacation. Zachie looks so happy with his hot chocolate...................the cutest face!!! I am sure Kevin will be glad when he has more teeth to be able to chew things. So glad you all had such a great time. Love you all, Susan

I'm so glad you had such a great vacation in Mammoth. I especially love Zachie with the hot chocolate on his face. Kevin will be much happier when he looses his tooth.
Love to all
