Mammoth Vacation

This past week Karen, Beck and I went flew down to Reno and then drove to Mammoth Lakes, California for a week of vacation. We took a gondola up to the top of the mountain:

which was fun, but Beck wasn't satisfied with 11,053 feet. He had to climb higher:

After the gondola ride down, Boppa Skip needed someone to check out his heart, so Dr. Beck stepped up to the plate:

Turned out that Boppa Skip felt hot as well, so Dr. Beck used what he thought was the thermometer to check Boppa Skip's temperature, in the area where Beck gets his temperature taken. Ahem.

Beck also got this cool horse and cowboy hat: he rode the horse around while wearing the cowboy hat saying "Hiho Silver!"

Not satisfied with a fake horse and hat, we visited the old ghost town of Bodie, where we took a family bath:

All the activities put Beck to sleep during dinner more than once:

but that left time for Mom and Dad to kayak around Lake Mary:

When it was all said and done, it was a week to remember:

Also notable during the week: Beck swam in a pool (using floaties) all by himself and we heard the phrases "where are we going?" and "come play with me!" approximately 605,203 times.

You can check out all the photos on Grammie Johnson's Flickr page.
