I took Friday off and went up to Bear Lake for the day with two friends and two incredibly well-behaved children. Why Bear Lake?

Bear Lake has a Raspberry Days Festival! And coconut drinks! (Sadly non-alcoholic.)

Bear Lake has deep-fried “scones” with raspberry butter!

Bear Lake has fruit stands!

And Bear Lake has raspberries, which was the point of the trip. I bought a case and made jam on Saturday, fulfilling my inner Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Bear Lake also has, you know, a lake.

And yes, I waded in it. (Obligatory blogger foot shot.)

What a fun trip!
