Bear Lake

I have fallen in LOVE with Bear Lake. It is the most beautiful place. The lake is huge, blue, cold and gorgeous. The beaches are also amazing... long stretching, soft sand, and so very gradual in depth. The kids and go out and play in the water as if they're in the biggest kiddie pool of life. For the last two summers Kirk's family has had family reunions at Bear Lake. It's a little tradition we like to think we have started. His entire family rents a cabin (well, my generous mother-in-law actually does) and we all pile in. We have a BLAST. We've gone in the middle of the week, so the lake is really not too crazy. We basically boat all day, eat lunch and play with the kids on the beautiful beaches, build sand castles and creatures, head back to the cabin for dinner, games, movies, junk food and whatever else. It has been SO fun.


I just have to say how utterly impressed I am with Kirk's family. We're a huge group, spanning in ages from older (I'll spare the details there) down to our little one-yr-old baby nephew Ryan. About 27 in all. Everyone gets along SO well. After all these years of sunday dinners at grandma's and all our family get-togethers, everybody has just figured out how to be together. It is like I say, very amazing. I'm very lucky to have such wonderful in-laws.

Anyhoo... Bear Lake was awesome. I got FRIED needless to say... but the wake boarding, the wipeouts, the sand whale, the tubing craziness, the famous shakes, the delicious meals, the hot tubbing, and all that jazz.. was fun, FUN business.

We love Bear Lake as well. We didn't make it to the "beach", as Chase calls it, this summer. Bummer.

Sorry about the fried crispy, but glad you had a great time!

Sounds like great fun. My hubby's family keeps trying to organize a reunion at Bear Lake, but we haven't worked it out yet. Maybe next year . . . :-)
