Rule #167: Wish for Sunshine when it snows

Over Labor Day, you know, LAST YEAR (I'm so behind!) we were invited to the Daly's Cabin in Bear Lake. Candace and Jim had other plans and they were gracious enough to let other families enjoy the fun that is Bear Lake. We went with Kevin, obviously, and his family. My Papa and Emma were also able to come. 
We had a fantastic time. This was the first time my kids had ever been on a boat. Lucky for us Evan was excited about being on a boat. Plus he was with his buddy Sanders, and everything is exciting with Sanders. I was just thrilled that my boys got on the boat at all, but they surprised me and actually rode on some of the awesome toys the Dalys have. 
Evan got on a tube ski with Beckham. It's a big inflated thing that you can either sit on or practice standing up and holding the rope. I wish you could zoom in on some of these pictures. Evan was grinning ear to ear. Thank you Beckham for showing Evan it was safe and fun and encouraging him to be brave. It means a lot to me. 
Graham didn't get on the tube ski, but on the following Monday, when we went out on the boat again, he did get on the couch. I wish I had pictures of it. It's an inflatable couch that seats four people. It's so neat! Graham and Evan both rode on that without adults, it was very exciting.

Rory was two months old at the time. She slept the entire time we were on the boat, nestled into this giant baby life jacket. She was perfect as always.
I didn't take as many pictures as I should have. But believe you me, fun was had. We played in the sand and cooked yummy food. Games were played by all ages. Memories were made all around. 
Thanks for letting us come with you! We had the best time! My boys still talk about Bear Lake and how much fun they had!
