During Raspberry Days we had a 2-day break so we went and enjoyed the festivities. The kids were happy about that. The beach was almost nonexistent this year because of the high water levels and it was COLD. We went to the beach once and that was enough, I didn't want to go again. We got to do a bunch of "firsts" this year like ride the big bike, have shaved ice, enjoy the parade, shopping, ride the race cars, and go on a 10 mile hike. (My boy scout is passing off his hiking merit badge so I was his travel buddy - since then we've done two more 10 milers and are doing the big 20 miler next weekend.) We forgot breakfast and remembered after mile one (should've gone back.) 2 hours later we got to the KOA market and loaded up. At mile 8 we found a bush of wild raspberries and thanked heaven for the angel that planted it. LOL
Also during the summer, my cousin Loren got married to a sweet girl named Samantha in the Salt Lake Temple and they had their reception in our backyard. We got home the day before to clean the house and left the morning after for Bear Lake again. Super fun party - I would totally do it again. Isn't she gorgeous - what a lucky guy!
