Bear Lake Weekend

Dave told me to keep Friday and Saturday open on my birthday weekend, but he wasn't going to tell me what we were doing. He was super excited about it. He was most excited because he was able to keep it secret. He's not good at keeping something secret. I almost always know what my birthday and Christmas presents are well before Christmas. It's not like he tells me what they are, he just happens to ask little questions about it the month before hand.
He was pretty good this time. I didn't know until the day we were leaving.
Anyway, we went up to our time share at Bear Lake. We went there two years ago for our anniversary. Apparently the first weekend in May up at Bear Lake when it is snowing isn't as pleasant. None of the stores were open. I was also morning sick then, too. This time was a lot more pleasant. It was a little chilly, but since it was a little bit after the busy season, things were still open and there weren't any crowds. The beach wasn't completely empty like the first time, but it was warm enough to go swimming.
We drove up there Friday, stopped in Logan for groceries.
Saturday morning we drove to Paris, ID and stood outside the tabernacle. Then we drove through the wildlife preserve to look for birds. I think most of them had flown south for the Winter already. We only saw a few ducks.
Then we played at the beach for a while.

That evening we went out for dinner at a little place called Cooper's. It was a cute little restaurant and the food was decently priced for a good amount. I got a chicken breast and a trout. We got Joshua a spaghetti.
Sunday morning we got up early, packed up the car, rode our bikes up the bike path a bit, then strapped the bikes back on the car and drove to Logan.
We stopped to visit Daniel at USU for a little while. We were able to drive past the Brigham City Temple and then rushed home, changed our clothes, dropped Joshua off at Dave's parents and then attended the last session of the Brigham City Temple dedication.
My favorite part of the whole weekend was that we got to spend uninterrupted time together as a family for the whole weekend. It was a wonderful birthday present.
