Bear Lake

A couple weeks ago we met Brandon's parents, Jeremy and Angie and kids and Jordan and Erin at a condo in Bear Lake for the weekend.  It was so much fun!  The condo was fantastic and the kids loved running around with their cousins.  We played at the lake, went swimming, went through the Minnetonka caves and Brandon and I "played tennis".  Yes, I put that in quotes because I'm not sure you could really call what we were doing tennis.  But we looked cute doing it.  Or so I like to think.  It was a really fun weekend away!  That's Stan and Mary!

The kids were SO excited to see their new aunt!  They swarmed around her the minute she walked in the door!
 Poor tired girl... Who's head is about to fall off...

Surfin' USA!!!

 This 4th of July we got to go see the Beach Boys preform on the 50th Anniversary Tour at Stadium of Fire!  It was SO much fun.  We prepped the kids by having them listen to beach boys pretty much non stop for a couple weeks before the concert.  I'm so glad we did because they knew a lot of the words.  Even Aubrey was singing, "Ba, ba, ba, ba, barbara ann".

Stadium of Fire has cut out a lot of the beginning stuff that they had last time we went.  The still had a few things before the Beach Boys but it was much shorter than I remember it being.  The most amazing was of course the fly over.  The did a few fireworks right as the jets flew over head.  It was awe inspiring.  Even Brynley said, "THAT was AWESOME!!" right after.  And I may or may not have teared up a little.  Ok, I did.  You got me.

Anyway, it was such a fun night!  Enjoy a little beach boys live:

Payson Lakes

On Saturday we took our raft up to Payson Lakes.  It was beautiful up there!  The weather was gorgeous and we had a fun time rowing around seeing all the little fishing spots around the edges of the lake.  I even fell asleep on the raft!  I was really tired.  It was a fun afternoon!
