vacation is almost over

Sunday we hit the indoor pool. This is the kid area with a soft squishy floor. The big people pool was cold and crowded so we didn't stay long.Reese getting a lift at the High Desert Museum. We are at about 4500 feet elevation in a desert climate, thus "high desert"---there was an exhibit on medicinal herbs, the oregon trail, local native americans and desert animals.

Reese found a stick at the Lava Cave that he found fascinating.

Lava flow that cools on the exterior encasing still hot lava (2100 degrees) creates a tube, when the hot lava drains out and it's all solidified it becomes a lava cave. There is an uncollapsed one here. Apparently not too many of those around. This big crack made me a bit nervous.

ICE in the cave while it's about 96 degrees outside.

This marmut was on our porch eating Reese's dropped cheerios this afternoon.

This cutie popped 2 teeth overnight AND he is officially a walker!! He's pretty excited about his smoothie and his new sneakers.
