More Bear Lake

Here are a few more pictures of our trip to Bear Lake. We spent an afternoon on the beach. The water was clear and pretty. My Mom and Dad got these little chairs for the grand kids. They are so cute and little.
Sabrina is so cute. She sat in her chair pretty much the whole time, wasn't interested in getting dirty.
Cannon was VERY interested in getting dirty. Mandy didn't put him in a swimsuit because she figured he wouldn't be into the sand and stuff, but he loved it! He got wet, tried to eat the sand, and by the end of the day, we were carrying him back to the car totally naked.

Pretty Gabriel. She had to leave Bear Lake a few days early for school. We were very sad. :-(

Kylee, Emilee and Don Carl out in the water. I think everyone had a great time.

The Big Family Vacation!

The family vacation to Bear Lake, Utah was the official kick-off for Summer for Daniel and me. Before we even left we had fun gettin' ready. I had decided we were going to have a family Wii bowling tournament, and I wanted to make some trophies. Daniel had the smart idea to go to our local bowling alley and ask if they had any old pins they wanted to get rid of. He brought home 3 pins which we painted and turned into "The King Pin" "Second Place" and "Third Place" trophies. So then we loaded up the car, and drove for 2 days (we spent the night in Idaho with my Aunt Leslee and Uncle Nick) The best news of the entire trip was that our car didn't break down anywhere. I've had enough of that this year!

We got to the resort before anyone else. We checked in and toured all 3 units to make sure everything was awesome. We had 1 unit on the ground floor so I decided that would be Mom and Dad's unit so Mom didn't have to climb stairs all the time. Mandy's family and Emilee stayed in Mom's unit. Daniel's Dad got the one bedroom unit, and Daniel and I got the upstairs unit, also known as "The Place to Be" because we got Travis' family (except Gabby who stayed with Emilee) Don and Cody. Daniel's Dad was the next to arrive. We were all hungry and my family wouldn't be there for 2 more hours, so we all went out for dinner. We ate at the Bear Trapper Steak House, it was really good.
My family got there at about 8 p.m. After getting everyone settled in, we visited and had a late dinner. (I ate a lot during this trip!)
That was just the first day. I could go into WAY more detail about the whole trip, But tomorrow I will just post some more pictures and the highlights of the trip. I was really happy to have all my family together. Daniel's Dad even had a great time. I think he really liked being around all the cute babies in my family..... I did too!

We are well into the fall and stuff just keeps happening! I have tons of stuff to post, so I will be doing a lot of new stuff in the next couple of days. Hope everyone is having a great fall and is looking forward to a great Holiday Season!
