March Madness in Lake Havasu

I enjoyed a great week in Lake Havasu with Karen after the rest of the Kopczynski clan left to go back to work and/or go home.  Levi arrived on Tuesday and we hung out together and watched a lot of basketball.  He knows a lot about basketball and he programmed the TV set so we would not miss any of the Gonzaga games!  Marilyn sent Levi

this shirt in time for the Final Four, but I've included it in this post because we were always proud of our Zags!  I painted the Zag fan rock in Lake Havasu and added the hearts after I got back home!

Karen and I did a little hiking in the hills around Lake Havasu, which you can see in the background.  We were a little nervous this day because outdoor enthusiasts were practicing their shooting skills and we could hear the shots all during our hike.  It was an exceptionally warm day so we didn't waste much time getting back home and into the pool.
We all rode bikes to the London Bridge and the lovely bike trails in the park.

We spent one morning kayaking on the Lake and watching the birds!  I remember visiting with a man who paddled around on a paddleboard who crafted a cooler seat to the board!

Another day we painted rocks with Karen and Dale's friend Joe Johnson's lovely wife, Tammy, and daughter, Savannah.

 This is Joe and his fancy Razor!  Joe and Raylene Johnson's mother owned Latah Sanitation when Karen worked there years ago.  Karen and Dale and happy to have friends now living close to their house in Havasu.  
 I was happy to be riding with Dale because I thought some people might get a little wild and crazy.
 I think there were 15 different terrain vehicles all unloaded for this planned ride to the Desert Bar!  Jerry, Dale's neighbor organized this ride and some people drove 6 - 8 hours to join in the fun.
The facade looks like a church, but I think it's used for wedding backdrops.  The Desert Bar served mostly hamburgers, but also the biggest portion of french fries I've ever seen.
These people know how to have fun!  This picture was taken during one of three 30-minute beer breaks!  Ninety-degree temperatures demanded lots of beer and lots of breaks.
