Bear Lake


We went to Bear Lake for a quick weekend with Steph and her boyfriend Andrew. We left Friday afternoon and found a camping spot on the east side of the lake. It was gorgeous and the weather was amazing. The water was super high so there was no beach and the water was just a few feet away from where we camped.


We cooked tinfoil dinners and they took waaaay longer than expected! Luckily we got in the water while we waited to cool off! The water was surprisingly warm and comfortable.


The sunset was beautiful! We really loved sitting around watching the the sunset and just relaxing.

The next morning we got up and enjoyed some swimming before packing up to leave. Dan absolutely loves the water and he was in heaven. It was a ton of fun.


We headed over to the west side of the lake and got some yummy raspberry shakes. For some reason, there was a covered wagon for us to enjoy our shakes in…


After shakes, we rented jet skis and played around on the lake for a few hours. It was so much fun and we had a blast riding around on the lake. The water was amazing and warm (weird for Bear Lake). I don’t have any pictures of that, but it was awesome!

Afterwards, we grabbed some lunch, and then we drove over to Preston for the Preston rodeo! It was a really gorgeous drive through tons of small towns and when we got to Preston, we grabbed a seat and watched the parade before the rodeo. Small towns are pretty awesome and Preston is a classic small town. It was great.

You may have noticed I have glasses on a lot lately or if they are off, I have a lazy left eye….I have been having major problems with my eye and I really haven’t been able to wear my contacts for more than a few hours at a time for the past 4 months! I think I finally got it figured out but my eye looks crazy in some of these pictures!


Dan went with the classic cowboy look…he kills me and I laughed every time I looked at what he was wearing. Funny kid. Steph found these awesome cowboy boots at D.I. for 12 bucks! Lucky!






Before the rodeo, we wandered around the carnival/fair. People watching was really awesome. Sometimes I just stare at people…


This was the only picture from the rodeo that I got! But the rodeo definitely didn’t disappoint and there were tons of famous and really good rodeo-ers there! The bull riding and bronco riding was really exciting and we had a blast on our little mini-vacation!
