We braved the long drive to Utah and had a fantastic trip!
We left at 5am ...forgot important items...drove back and then restarted our trip which caused this face. Dave was so hyped on energy drinks he managed to look like this the whole drive.
After a few naps and some snacks I was able to be happy:)
We made a few fun stops.
Even managed to get a tour from Sister Moseng! Dave asked her all the impossible questions and she held up pretty well.
We did a session in the Salt Lake Temple which was a first for both of us and really enjoyed it.
Then the real trip began...
Beautiful and still freezing Bear Lake!
We talked my mom into taking us to the famous RiverDale Hotsprings in Preston. Somehow growing up it was a lot cooler, but still fun.
Dave couldn't crack a happy face until later in the week when the boat arrived.
A Bear Lake stay is not official until we have been to the Pickleville Playhouse. Hands down the best plays ever! I even think I saw Dave singing along once or twice:)
We enjoyed days soaking in the sun, evenings roasting hot dogs around a camp fire, playing games and spending time with our families.
Dave's siblings were able to come from Idaho and Utah to spend time with us.
Always love spending time with family...when will I grow up and take a normal picture:)
Apparently I missed the memo that you are still suppose to get ready even when you are at the lake:)
Dave played man of the house and mowed the lawn for us.
Our week went by way to fast and we were sad to leave, but look forward to Bear Lake 2011!
We stopped in Moab to see Makel. Trying to get these two to get a picture was a little rough!!
We got back at 4 in the morning and reality set right back in. Dave worked the next few days and then we spoke in sacrament meeting. We both and by that I mean I survived...Dave was a natural of course.
The best news of all was that Dave passed the GRE with flying colors and can now apply to grad schools.
Dave's big birthday is this week and I am so excited to celebrate with him:)
