Bear Lake 2011

We had a blast at Bear Lake this year and the weather was AWESOME! The water level was up as high as I can remember and although it took away most of our beach, it was still fabulous!

I didn't get any pictures of the first day that we were there, but within an hour of arriving at the lake, Landon fell off the slide at the pool and landed face first on the cement. He had the biggest bump on his head and his eye started filling with blood. He threw up a few times so we took him to the Instacare. The doctor was so nice and worked really well with my scared little Landon. He said Landon had a level two concussion and should heal just fine. It was so sad to see him look so awful as he healed, but he was happy as can be and did great for the rest of the week.

Poor guy!

Jason had an interview during our vacation, so he left on Wednesday night and took Landon and Keira home with him. I stayed with the older four children and we had a great time. It was SO weird not having Jason, K, and L, but it was very relaxing not having to chase the little kids around. I LOVE Bear Lake. I had a blast skiing and had great water. I have a picture to prove that I still got some skiin' skillz, but it is on my mom's camera and I haven't downloaded it yet. :)

I LOVE Bear Lake! Looks like you all had a fabulous time, except for maybe poor Landon.

I had to laugh at Brian - every picture of him includes food! But, that IS Bear Lake after all. Remember the ginorm tub of Grandma's caramel corn on the bar, or the 5 lb bag of licorice Aunt Linda always brought? I still can't eat taco salad without being taken back to the cabin deck, being sandwiched between sunburned cousins, while we all try to eat without touching each other. Ah...memories!

AMEN, Jill! I have those same memories, except mine always include the tupperware cases full of cookies - neverending - Yum!

Poor little Landon! That is just an awful feeling for a mom, when something like that happens to one of your kids. Glad the rest of the trip was fun, and hopefully Landon had a good time too!
