Sun Banks Resort

For fourth of July weekend we went to Sun Banks Resort, which is on Banks Lake near the Grand Coulee Dam. The resort was nice, but loud, and had a big "party" atmosphere. The beach was great and the kids loved floating around on rafts and paddling in the inflatable boat. Georgette loved swimming and it seemed to improve her lame leg! We spent time reading, swimming, sitting in the sun, visiting with Greg and Heather and their gang (they were in a different part of the resort), and eating! For the fourth, we went to the Grand Coulee Dam and watched a laser show and fireworks show. We got there five hours early, and ended up thinking the laser show was too long (Hannah lamented "why did it have to be educational?"). The fireworks were nice, not the best show we've seen, but pretty cool. Dennis and Mary Anne visited for the fourth so it was good to see them again. Hayley brought her friend Laura along - it was her first experience camping and she loved it. I'm not sure how much she loved seeing the "uncensored" side of our family (for example the night after we had chili for dinner - phew!). I told her "what happens camping, stays in the camper!" We had a lot of laughs and the weather was great. We're looking forward to the next trip!
