Welcome to my Vacation 2000 website

It was so fun last year we had to return. We thought to ourselves, how will we top last year? Well we did with the help of a nice little lake, Sunbow. There are many pictures from this trip and the same crew attended the festivities, including the mosquitoes. This year we brought our own boats and Tim's boat had an appropriately named engine, the terminator. So as a recap, (Tim, Ryan, Nick, Leigh (girl), Dan, and Scout (dog) ) traveled to Arrow Lake Canada campground again for a week of fun and fishing. Well, we arrived during a Canadian holiday and had trouble finding a site but were able to get "our old site" back the second day. Firewood was plentiful and it had been dry. Of course it rained the first two days. Enjoy the photos!!
