4th of July and Camping at Bear Lake 2013

For the 4th of July this year, we headed up to Logan for the fireworks on the night of the 3rd, and then he headed off to Bear Lake to finish off the weekend.  We had so much fun.

Here we are waiting for the fireworks to start.
Carter and Mason had fun playing ball with the ball that J made out of glow sticks.

Hanging out with Grandma, Aunt Missy and Uncle John.

Me and J..... Aren't we so cute?  :)

Okay, I love this picture.... This is our new Tent trailer!!!  :)  Okay, well it's not technically new, but it is new to us and I love it!!! I have wanted one for forever, and so I finally talked J into letting us get one. Since we bought it only a few weeks before my B-day, it ended up being my present, and I was totally fine with that.  As weird as it sounds, this has been one of the best B-day presents I have ever gotten. 

This was our first camping trip of the year and we had so much fun... I almost didn't want to come home.  We did a lot of riding scooters and going on walks.... 

Sitting around the camp fire...

and taking time out to relax and watch a few movies.

We did something this year that we have never done before.  We rented a boat for a few hours one day.  It was SOOOOO..... much fun.  Seriously, this will be a yearly thing for us I think.  Everyone had a blast.

We rented a banana tube. This picture is Little Miss, Bug, and I being pulled behind the boat.  It was a blast until J tipped us over and the girls freaked out..... They were seriously traumatized. So, the banana tube lasted all of 30 minutes of the 4 hours we had our boat rental for.  No one wanted anything to do with it after that...  Oops!  :)

J had a turn on the tube before we just took it back in so we could do some other boating activities.  He was standing up on it, and doing all sorts of crazy stuff.  At least J and I had fun on the tube. :)

The girls recovering from (according to them) their near death experience. Although, they were both wearing life jackets and perfectly safe the whole time. :)

Next we went water skiing.  J was so good at it.  He popped right up every time and could ski for forever it seemed like.  Notice there are no cool pictures of me skiing. Why?  Because I was the lamo that couldn't get out of the water.  I have wake boarded and done fine, but for whatever reason, I couldn't get out of the water with these ski's.  Oh well... I did try. 

We spent the rest of the day, swimming, eating lunch, and driving around.  After the trauma had worn off a little, the girls had a blast.  Little Miss loves the water and had no problems swimming around.  Bug however was not about to get into the water again after her initial "dunk" off the tube.  We had to bribe her with whatever she wanted from the dollar store just to get her in the water for a little while. 

Mr. Blue Eyes wanted nothing to do with the deep water, so he just hung out on the boat, eating and laughing at everyone else being crazy in the water. 

After we finished swimming, we let everyone have a turn driving the boat.  They thought that was the coolest thing ever!  :)

As we were headed back in, I looked back and noticed that Mr. Blue Eyes was totally asleep, sitting up in the back of the boat.  You know that is the sign of a good trip! :)

On our last night of camping, there was this huge thunder storm that rolled through.  He hung out in our trailer watching movies....

Playing games....

and making silly things with glow sticks.

For our first trip of the summer, and our very first trip in the trailer, it was 100% successful!  :)
