Some families in our neighborhood were headed to Bear Lake for a week. We couldn't stay the whole week, but we were able to go from Tuesday-Thursday. The Francis, Johnsons, and Forstners, stayed in condos and we tried out glamping with the Bunkers. Glamping is glamorous camping, I had never done it before, but that it would be fun to try something new. It was nice big tents with real beds complete with down comforters. In our tent we had a king bed and 3 twin beds and plenty of room for the pack n play. Plus the showers/toilets were really nice. There was free hot chocolate every morning, which the girls thought was awesome.
Our tent--it was so spacious and a perfect set-up. I think we will go back next year for sure!
Man we pack a lot of stuff!
Brielle usually woke up around 5 to eat and her little hands would be freezing, I couldn't put her back in her pack-n-play so cold, so I brought her in bed with more and we would sleep together till about 8am.
I loved the extra snuggles with her in my bed.
Cambry can't decide if she wants to get out of bed or not.

I drove up on Tuesday with the Bunker girls. Mike had a trip in Minnesota and wasn't landing tip Tuesday night. We got to our glamping site around lunch, we ate lunch, changed into our suits and headed to the Lake. We met the rest of the group at a place where they had rented a trampoline in the water. It was cold and windy so we debated canceling it, but decided to just go ahead with it. The kids loved it, but as you can tell, were cold after so they wrapped up in towels. We had dinner at the Forstner's condo, grabbed shakes, and then headed to our place. Mike got there around 10 with the boat.
The next morning we headed to the lake in hopes of getting some great boating in. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating. It was again cold and windy. Mike took the boat and pulled a few kids on the tube, but it was white capping so he called it good. I was really looking forward to getting in a good surf since I knew it was my only opportunity because the boat was for sale, but it did not happen.
The kids didn't care about the wind, they loved playing in the sand.
Kayaking was another favorite for the kids.
Cambry had a fun time playing with the older kids and being outside.
Sand is a kid's best friend.
Seth took Cambry out on the kayak.
Izzy enjoyed playing with Ellie.
Let's be honest eating on the lake is the best part.
On Wednesday we barbecued at Conestega Ranch, our glamping site. They boys manned the grill quite well.
After dinner we made s'mores, which is always a hit with kids.
On Thursday morning we swam at the condo where everyone else was staying, ate lunch with the Johnsons and then headed back.
So glad we got to have a little quick get away and really enjoyed our time. Special thanks to the Francis' who organized it and made it happen!
