Falling Behind

Man, I am falling behind on my blog. Well, I have a few minutes before work so let me tell you all about the excitement we've been having. Two weekends ago, my family on my dads side had a family reunion in Bear Lake. It was a blast! Dan got to meet pretty much everyone for the first time and of course they loved him. We played games, eat amazing food (thanks again Kac and Ryan), played in the sun, went to some really cool caves and went boating. Here are some pictures of the awesome caves.

Some of the many stairs we had to climb

There were bats sleeping in the ceiling

Here are some pictures from boating and the moose we saw next to the inn we were staying at.

Dan and my cousin Ethan. They were maniacs. 

We also had an excellent 4th of July weekend. I have wanted to go swimming for a long time and I decided that we had to go the 4th of July weekend. Well I got my wish times 10. First I have to mention, on Friday we were invited to go roast hot dogs with Durk and Mandy, some friends of ours in our ward. So we went out and built a campfire. Then we ended up coming back to our apartment and played Mario on the Wii. We really get into it and it's a blast. Alright back to Saturday, we got invited to go to Egin Lake and after a small adventure we ended up floating the river instead. I got a terrible sunburn on my shins. My shins of all places! It was not a fun night for me. 
On Monday, we planned to go to Egin Lake (for real this time) with Dan and Sarah. We got Paola and Brock to join us and had a blast.
Sadly the only picture I got from the whole day.
After Egin Lake, we had a very delicious BBQ. It was so good probably because we were all so hungry but that's beside the point. For the rest of the night, we went to Idaho Falls for the fireworks. Idaho Falls has the biggest fireworks show west of the Mississippi (that's what they say). I don't know if that is true but they were amazing. I love the music they play to go along with the fireworks. It's the cherry on top of the patriotic feeling cake.

    The BBQ was delicious! You guys did the meat just perfectly, and the avocados were awesome. Best 4th ever :)
