Bear Lake 2012

Labor Day had us up in Bear Lake.  Our good friends own Bear Family Haven.  If you need a good, clean place for a large group, these are the places to stay.  

This time, we stayed in the Mama Bear cabin.  We invited any of Dentist Husband's family who wanted (and could) to come with us. It was a great weekend.  

Some highlights:  Ordering the 28 inch "Old Ephraim" pizza.  Imagine a card table--then you understand the size of this pizza box.

 The raspberry shakes (from the same pizza place) were awesome too.

The Paris (in Paris, Idaho) Ice Cave

 That is snow.  
You have to hike further in to find the true ice.

 Dentist Husband and his sister (she is 10 years younger than him, married with one son)

 Playing "Name that Tune" with my iphone play list.  Only a few snide comments were made about my song selections.

 Crab apple fights.  There was a huge crab apple tree on the property and yes, we got in several crab apple fights.  Yes, they really do hurt when hit.  We have the bruises to prove it.  

My sister in law (married to Dentist Husband's oldest brother) made three kinds of awesome popcorn.  

 All of the kids hot tubbing at night.
 Getting in heated/friendly arguments late into the night.
 Eating at the Bear Lake icon LaBeaus.

All in all a great trip.  
Also, if you get a chance, eat at Cafe Sabor.  Excellent Mexican food.

Back to real life now . . .

It's safe to say that I'm a bit jealous. But I'm even more happy that you had so much fun! Looks like an awesome Bear Lake/Family weekend.
