Weekend at Cheney Lake

Camping is something I enjoy doing when the weather cooperates and there is time for it. You might remember last year I posted some pictures from El Dorado Lake on a camping trip, but this year it was a trip west to Cheney Lake. The weather was almost perfect Friday evening and into Saturday with a slight breeze and the humidity wasn't unbearable. Millie discovered a love for water a few years ago, but I didn't know she was such a good swimmer until this weekend. She's has a pretty thick coat and when it's wet, it does add some weight, but that helps to build her stamina. She was able to swim about 50-75 feet out from the shoreline to fetch a stick and to hang out with the rest of the swimmers, but at the end of the day, she was pooped. This was my first adventure to Cheney Lake and we really had a great time. I know next weekend will be very busy with the Labor Day weekend campers, but if the forecast holds up, rain might dampen some of the activities..

College football will kickoff this weekend. I'm getting pretty excited to see the Kansas teams back in action. There's been a touch of fall in the air lately with the cooler weather we've been having. I'm not sure how you feel about it, but we haven't had many complaints in the storm center about the October-like weather. I know we need some dry weather though for the farmers to get some wheat planted, but this week still looks a bit unsettled. Anyone attend the Flight Festival this weekend?

I bet you all had a good time camping. The weather was especially nice! I love to camp too, but don't get to go as often as I'd like.

What fun pictures. You should tell us BEFORE you go next time so all your viewers can join you!

I have a Corgi & she can't swim - she flips over!! I'm amazed that Millie can swim.

Hey Ross,

Glad you had a great time camping at Cheney, looks like a good time was had by all. I have always enjoyed it, but never seems to be enough time. I am still hoping to get out this fall before it cools down, I've gone camping at least once each year for the last few years.

Millie sure seemed to have a good time as well. My labs love the water, but not my Great Dane, he won't go past his "knees" and thats only if the other two are in the water as well.

I am ready for some football as well. On Sunday, a bunch of friends got together and did our Fantasy Football Draft. It has been a lot of fun doing this each year. I'm also lookin' forward to watching some K-State Games, Go Cats!!!!!!!

Anyone have any big plans for this typically long weekend for most? I have some friends coming in town this weekend and plan to visit the zoo. I also have a Party Bus birthday event that I am lookin' forward to.

Caden is also lookin' forward to his first State Fair trip coming up in September. We will look for you Ross! Hope Millie will get to visit the Fair this year too!

Have a great day all!
