Back to the school grind.
The calendar is looking full again.
But a few weeks ago.. we had nothing going on.
Just a week of relaxing and fun @ Bear Lake.
That is the girls and I, poor Shane was off working on the Portland Temple the entire time... :(
Started out with a day of fun with my bestie Shelby.
We've been best friends since 1st grade.
Growing up she spent at least an entire week with me @ Bear Lake each summer.
I tried to find a picture of us from clear back in the day and only came up with this sweet gem.
not Bear Lake, but plenty of time spent on trampolines... never getting tan!
We are so very stylish sporting that poodle hair and those super high cut swimsuits!!
And note to my daughters... you will look back at pictures of you RIGHT NOW and DIE at the "fashions" of the day!!!
That's also my sweet friend Gina... love you girl!!
But anyway we no longer sit on trampolines wasting the day away.
We send our kids our to trampolines in the middle of the lake so we can chat!!
O what a difference a few years make... how did we go from that to this????
(yes I know there are 10, one was Tayler's friend Taitlin, my adopted daughter for the week. Maybe Tayler will have a similar blog post in 20 years!! hahaha)
A super fun day! So glad they could come.
Love you forever Shelb!!
Then we were back to just us for a day. (including Taitlin in the "us") :)
The next day Lisa and Josh and Josh's friend Robert came up.
They kept us entertained of course.
Rented the trampoline again, but no pictures because even Lisa and I went out to it this time... so no photographer.
The next day Joe joined us. And Nate and Collin Heaps made it up too.
We rented jet skis and they all had a super good time.
Gosh dang it she is ADORABLE!!
We had fun together playing games and were sad when they all left us and went home.
During those couple days Josh helped us make a video. hahaha
Just a little sampling of what it's like with our fun friends!
And then it was just me and the girls. Even Taitlin went home.
That next day we went over to Raspberry Days, had shaved ice @ Pickleville and then decided to buy tickets for 7 Brides for 7 Brothers that night.
We got the last few seats and all sat in a line behind each other in the aisle. hahaha
Even Lydia, just sat by a stranger and the people around her couldn't believe that she never moved or made a peep. Completely enthralled with the performance.
At intermission I got her popcorn and some of us had "picklesicles". She had the popcorn for a minute and I had one bite of my pickle. She saw it and wanted to "trade".
I told her that when she wanted to trade back she could.
Bad trade for me...
She finished the entire pickle, handed Saige the stick and said, "she was ready to trade now." So she finished the popcorn too. :)
She's got it all figured out!
We loved the show.
And Tayler was super happy that she got to see her fellow cheer friend Kenzie perform.
There was a little mini-golfing.
Plenty of fun in the sun.
A completely successful Bear Lake week.
The only think that could have made it better is if Shane had been able to come.
We missed you and know you missed us too!
Bear Lake will always and forever hold a special place in each of our hearts!!
