Trip to Bear Lake

Well it is par for the course that I am a complete slacker! We have been pretty busy since school has let out. What has become our yearly highlight, is our 2nd annual trip to Bear Lake. We stayed in Logan this year to save a few bucks. It was really nice. The girls loved main street, and it was fun to stop at places in Logan canyon on the way to the lake.

 Ava found a solution to not getting car sick....
The lake was super high this year, so there were only two beaches, one on the north end and one on the south. You had to get there early enough in the day or they would turn you away. There were maybe 50 parking spots at best! The water was not as blue and clear, and the beach was a bit muddy at the edge, but the girls still had a great time playing.

We did break down and rent a boat for a few hours on Saturday. Unfortunately the only time that they had left was from 9-11am. Up there that put us at 64 degrees. But the girls had the time of their lives, even scardy cat Ash!

The girls each got to take a turn driving all on their own. That is the plus side of going so early on that we only saw two other boats in the entire two hours!
Then we drove to Randolph, where there is "the smallest gift shop" It literally looks to be about the size of a port o potty. Of course it was closed, so we went next door to a little Gifts of the West shop. Because what is a vacation without a souvenir!

Dance Competition 2011

Here a few pics of Ava's latest dance solo. She won 3rd Attendant I don't have video yet because I used my VHS recorder, and I need to buy the converter to make it a DVD. I think Ava did great, she has practiced hard and I am always amazed that she is brave enough to go out there all by herself! Thanks to Chrystal for all of her patience! And thanks to everyone who was able to come out and support her!

Have you seen this girl...?

       I want to first thank everyone so far who has helped us out with flat Ava. When I first got the instructions home from school, I will admit that I was a bit more that irritated. But thanks to all of you, it has been really fun for me, and even more fun for Ava. Here are just a few of the things that flat Ava has done..
First she went to Buffalo NY where she played the game of 'Trouble' with cousin Liv and Uncle Nate... of course Uncle Nate won!
Flat Ava helped cousin Liv take care of her tortoise George, he loves to eat red leaf lettuce.
Flat Ava came to work with Aunt Angie at the Doctors office one day and just had to have a check up. We checked her ears and her heart and reminded Flat Ava to eat healthy foods and get some exercise everyday!

 Next she went to sunny Florida to vist Grandma Kayt and Grandpa Mike. They sent the pics to school, they did a lot of fun stuff on the beach

Flat Ava went hiking with Jen and shady up Baer Canyon and she also got a hug fom Bode and Jen's work

Then she was off to ride Jake at Rock E with Dee!

She then took a flight to Phoenix.....who knew they let Beavers on the plane?!

Always check your feet for TP after leaving the bathroom,  how embarrassing!

 And now......we're not sure where she's at! Thanks again, and if you see this girl, please send her along with a pic or two! How nice would it be if we could all travel through the mail for a couple of bucks!
