Summer Vacation - Utah

The kids and I head back to Utah every summer and this year we spent 3 weeks hanging out with my family and having a great time. I always plan on seeing friends while I'm there unfortunately even with 3 weeks, I wasn't able to see everyone I wanted to...hopefully we'll catch up next time.

We had a shower for my youngest sister Stephanie who was due on August 11th, but the little guy waited just long enough for a trip to Bear Lake and FHE at the cabin before he made is debut 8 days early.

Chase and Riley loved my parents backyard - Riley would go around "picking the flowers", swinging on the swings and jumping on the trampoline.

The 1st thing Chase would ask in the mornings is if he could go jump on the tramp, he loved it.

We headed up to Bear Lake for the weekend which was great given we missed Lake Powell this year, however spending the day on the water made me miss LP even more. It's been years since I've been to Bear Lake and all I remembered is the fresh raspberry shakes, how cold the water was and having the worst sunburn of my life (we are talking covered in blusters bad), however I had forgotten just how gorgeous it is.
The kids had a great time playing on the sand, riding in the boat and playing with their cousins.
Chase loved riding on the boat, I don't think he moved from this spot all day.

Minde--your kids are darling. You look fabulous! Glad you get to go see your family each year. That is a great tradition. I really love those new babies too! I hope you are well.
