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!
