Bridal Shower for Katie Bug!

I hosted a bridal shower for Katelyn and it turned out so pretty!  I made the flower arrangements, the chicken salad croissants, the fruit and a tortellini salad.  Sidney made this unbelievable, three layered raspberry lemon cake!  She is a really great baker and makes incredible things.  Grandma Julie and my sisters in law helped with desserts and salads.  It turned out perfect.  We had just over 50 show up for it.  Katelyn got some pretty great presents and we had fun hosting our first bridal shower for a niece!

Camping at Strawberry

Jeff and I decided to take the kids camping up Strawberry Reservoir.  We borrowed Joel and Julie's trailer and headed up.  Cade took two friends, Dylan Jensen and Carson Bills.  Molly took Ellie.  The girls had a blast playing games and dancing around.  Molly found a big caterpillar and thought it was awesome!  Cade and his friends went fishing.  We spent the first night in the trees and it was shady and cool but the dust was terrible!  So the next morning we packed up and headed down to the KOA area next to the lake.  We had a picnic table there, bathrooms, and water / power hookups.  Much better!  although we lost the shade of the trees.  I cooked tinfoil dinners on the campfire.  Fun was had by all!

Bear Lake 2018

Our annual Bear Lake trip was another success!  This year Katelyn took her fiancĂ© Nate and Averi decided to take her boyfriend Brock so Sidney decided since she wouldn't have anyone to hang out with to take her boyfriend Brook.  It worked out great and everyone had a blast.  We played on the beach, and built sand creatures.  Sidney and Brook built a sea turtle and Chase and Cade made a shark.  We boated, jet skied, swam, played cards, went out for milkshakes and spent time in the sun.  The water was one of the warmest times I've ever felt.  I think it was even more warm than last year.
We love Bear Lake!
