Aaron's side of the family has this fun tradition where they go to Bear Lake every summer. Count me in! We went three weeks ago right after Aaron's birthday and had such a great time! We toured Minnetonka Cave the first day (which was really incredible,) camped, played sand volleyball, swam in the freezing water, went kayaking, and played bocce ball. I was actually able to go with his family last year while we were still dating. Of course his little brother Thomas says, "Hey Rachel, why did you even come with us last year?" Oh hey thanks Tom I'm glad you're so found of me haha. I'm actually really glad I went last year. I got to know his family a lot better that way and it was such a blast. This year was way better though. Do you want to know why? I didn't have to sleep in my own tent this year :)

Lots and lots of bocce ball
The kids LOVED playing in the water all day long.
