Bear Lake Camping Take 2

So like I said, we did all our summer camping two weekends in a row. The second we went with our good family friends, The Arnells. It had been two years since we had last camped with them so we were due for a trip. We wanted to leave Thursday night so we could have all day Friday and Saturday up at Bear Lake. Nolan was working all day Thursday so I had to load up his truck, four wheeler and all. I was so proud of myself. I did have Gary come over and help me tie everything down. The last thing I want is for the four wheeler to fly out while I'm by myself on the highway (Toni, you know what I'm talking about ;)). We had such a blast, and this weekend was much better than the last. Lauren and Riley came up on Friday and met us again. We went to the lake both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday we spent the whole day tubing. I am such a freaking chicken on that thing. My voice was hoarse screaming at Riley cause he was going too fast, only to find out he was going faster when Caden was by himself. On Friday, Kadrie was really sick with a nasty cold and all she wanted to do was sleep and be held. You can see how miserable she was in the picture with me. I know I am going to sound like a bad mom, but I love when my kids are sick. I love how cuddly they are. I actually don't mind my kids being sick, in fact, sometimes I want to make them sick just so they will be all cuddly. Ok so not really, but you know what I mean. We always have so much fun camping with the Arnells, and the kids get a long so well. Plus you can't beat Gary's BBQ chicken and Nanette's potato salad. And of course my famous watermelon brownies :). Ok, so they aren't famous, but they should be. They are awesome.

Maybe one of these days we will have to go camping with you guys, I don't think I've camped in like 3 years! It was fun to have you over tonight, and the rest of House Bunny was awesome.

where do you camp at bear lake? we camp on the north shore there's a couple places...and you can wake up and walk down to the beach...but it doesn't look like your campsite with all those trees for good shade...we love bear lake..was the water still somewhat warm?
