A Little Rain Can't Hold Us Down

Remember when I had that wacky idea to explore the wonders of Utah? Yeah, we're still working on that. Yesterday, along with our friends the Bawdens, we headed to Bear Lake for our first Utah adventure of the season (and yes, I know that Bear Lake is mostly in Idaho).

I haven't been to Bear Lake since I went to scout camp at Camp Hunt when I was 12. To earn our cycling merit badge, our troop went on a 50-mile ride around the lake. The only problem? It rained. The. Entire. Eight. Hours.

There must be something with me and Bear Lake and the rain. When we left Salt Lake it was drizzling. By the time we hit Odgen, it was a torrential downpour. When we finally made it to the North Beach, it was still raining.

But after three hours of driving, we couldn't just turn around and go back home. So we put on our swimsuits, put up our canopy,  and prayed for sunshine.

And it came.

Despite some sporadic showers throughout the afternoon, we had beautiful weather for a day on the beach (and enough fun to feed an army).

Here's the proof:

Not only did the kids LOVE it (and get completely worn out--hooray!), but the drive from Logan to Bear Lake was absolutely gorgeous. 

We couldn't have hoped for a better day trip.
