We come from a long line of farmers and ranchers so when they set up activities for the little ones what else would they have but cattle ropin’ (hay bale style!)
This was a fairly large reunion, going back several generations starting with my great, great grandpa so there were plenty of stories to tell!
In the hot afternoons we played in the river! In several places there were hot springs that flowed right into the river and the big thing to do in town was to float down the river on tubes. Our kids were happy just to play in the shallows and leave the river floating to others. It sure looked fun though! We hope to go back in a year or two when the kidlets are a bit older so we can do the river float too.
On our way home from the reunion we stopped for a day at Bear Lake UT. Such a pretty place! This was taken from my car window as we drove away, but we really did stop to enjoy the lake. And yes, it really is that blue!
After Bear Lake it was on to Logan UT where I absolutely had to stop at My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe. I had met the shop owner and her sister at Quilt Market (delightful people!) and I’ve heard such great things about the shop. It did not disappoint!
The photo doesn’t do the shop justice – but I was too busy shopping to take any other pics. I was pretty reserved in my shopping – just grabbed these two:
…and a few FQ for some re-stashing:
I think it’s so fun to visit other people’s LQS (local quilt shops). I think each one has it's own personality - especially the ones in smaller towns. So here's my question: If I came to your town, what would be the one shop you would recommend I stop by?
