Burrrrrr Lake

The kids love to go to Bear Lake. We have such a fun time staying with all the cousins on Dan's side. The water was frigid but the kids don't seem to mind. We stayed a full week. We watched the kids swim, play in the sand, miniature golf, swim, and miniature golf some more. Here are a few of the highlights:

The bike was so fun, (for the first 15 min.) by the time our hour was up, I was DEAD TIRED.

Chase jumping off the slide. No more of that little buddy.
Kristen and Katelyn coming in from riding the boat. If you look close you can see the goose bumps on their legs. Burrrrrrr.

Hurry Chase and get out of there. Hypothermia sets in in 15 minutes. I think there were still ice burgs floating in it. Bear Lake totally freezes over in the winter and they ice fish on it. No Lie.

Little Miss Molly and her polka dot sunglasses. She looked like the cutest little Hollywood starlet.

Alivia playing in the sand while Emma and Molly went to get water for there sand castle. She wasn't smiling for any pictures today. She had a job to do.
This little guy looks sweet, adorable and calm but he is his fathers son. Scott wasn't with us this trip because he was in Europe. Peyton here did his father proud by keeping us all on our toes. I was so tired at the end of everyday just watching Jessica try to keep up with this cute, little cyclone.

I think Jens got the wrong end of the stick. I bet his legs are blue from standing in that water to pitch the ball to Chase.

We just got back from Bear Lake. I call it Burrrr Lake because you get hypothermia if you step foot in the water. Here is a picture of 3 of my little nieces, Emma, Molly and Alivia. They are the cutest little chickadees. More to come.

The Boat Race

The scouting boat regatta. Dan was out of town and I realized Chase had to make his boat for scouts. I totally knew what to do. I picked up the phone and called Grandpa Duane. Duane took the helm and knew exactly what to do. Phew! Thanks Grandpa Duane. What would we do without you. When race day came Chase was a little shy. When it was his turn he would blow really timid into the sail. I'm recording everything and I'm yelling blow harder, blow faster, come on little buddy YOU CAN DO IT. (Nacho Libre Movie). My favorite quote. His boat wasn't the fastest but it sure was the best looking.
