Camping at Riding Mountain

This summer for our family camping trip we met up with my sister-in-law, her husband, and their six kids at Clear Lake in Riding Mountain National Park.  It boasted beautiful lakes but also an abundance of mosquitoes.  The weather could have been a bit warmer for swimming but we still got in a lot of beach time.  Also one day my brother-in-law rented a pontoon boat to do some fishing and it was lovely to get out on the lake.  (No, I didn't fish.  I was crocheting on the boat and just enjoying being on the lake.  But I was the person who held the net when someone caught a fish.)  Star did try her hand at fishing and caught a couple of fish.  She was very excited.

Uncle P did join us for few days as well.  Here he is being goofy as normal.  Splashing the girls just as I was taking the picture.

We did do a few hikes but the mosquitoes were quite atrocious on our hikes.

They have a bison pasture there as well and we were able to get up close to some bison.

It was a lot of fun for the kids to camp with all their cousins and it was fun for us adults too.
