On Saturday we headed out to Burns Lake for my husband's mountain bike race and Kesten's first camping trip. Saturday was a beautifully hot day. About 15 minutes outside of Burns Lake, we stopped our car at a construction site and turned it off. Unfortunately, it wouldn't turn back on again. erk. Well, after a lot of running around and jump starts and calling, some very helpful people at Tirecraft helped us get a new car battery. Whew. That is probably the easiest and cheapest thing to fix that could have gone wrong. So now our car works again, yay! We missed all the downhill races that day, but we had fun setting up camp, swimming in the beautiful lake, and eating dinner in town. We got all cozy and warm and settled down for the night. Kesten did amazing and slept 7 hours in a row! We got more sleep this year than last year at the race (all the campsites were taken and we had to sleep in the parking lot. And then we discovered that our air mattress was missing its plug, so we basically just slept on the hard parking lot ground). In the morning, this little guy's smile greeted us!
The Fireweed Motor Inn. We walked around town and headed off on a couple of hikes. The first was a walk to Twin Falls.
Look at the lush foliage!
