Vacation pics...

So here's what Crater Lake looked like when we first got there.
Rain/snow mix.
For those of you that don't know; Crater Lake is an ancient volcano that when it erupted
(???many years ago) it actually caved in on itself and formed this GIANT crater.
It is breathtakingly beautiful.
But, when we got there, you couldn't see it at ALL.
**side note: this has happened to me more than once! I got to go see Niagara Falls once when I was 12 and when we got there it was all fogged in.
Couldn't see a stinkin thing!
Anyhow, here is us 'enjoying' the sites........


We drove around for a bit and visited the indoor center, and learned a whole bunch of cool stuff. The whole time, our kids kept praying that it would clear up a bit, for us to at least see the water at the bottom of the rim.....

Check out how cool God is:

Yup. Serious. I actually cried. Absolutely breathtaking. When we drove back up from checking out the other things this is what we saw. The water is THAT blue.

Dude. You just can't stop staring at it......amazing creation.
