Day 1, Saturday
Mildly unfortunate, that our friend's car had been broken into the very morning we were supposed to leave; so at 6:15 they arrived to get us in his friend's BMW. So that's how them kids + us two had started our drive to Donner Lake this morning. Luckily it was smooth sailing. Hopefully driving conditions wont be too bad on the way back either.
that few minutes where you're excited for the drive. after that... you are delirious and ready to get out
a short lived trip to Donner Beach, where, after a five minute swim we got soaked under a heavy rain cloud. It was on and off for a solid half hour until we gave up and left.

the girls went on a bike ride
the pingpong matches were intense.
That evening, we played some games - and it was super entertaining! Charades, immitations, 'Who Am I?' and more.
Day 2, Saturday
We prepared to go out today, knowing that there will be thunderstorms ahead. And were there ever! Got me nervous a few times driving above angry looking heavy clouds, but we made it safely to King's Beach. After realizing the rain was not stopping soon, we sat down for a slice of Hawaiian Pizza and Irish Coffee.
views and friends
lots of media was taken while we were out driving through the thunderstorms.
