Oh, Utah. Why do you have to be so hot?

We decided last week to head over to Bountiful Lake. I was kind of thinking that we would be able to wade in the water? Come to find out, you probably don't want to swim/wade in the water. It was kind of stinky/fishy. 
Nonetheless, we parked the bikes under the shade and Melinda decided to venture out into the murky waters. 

Melinda was out with the majority of the kids, the #ohniceandchubbybabies and I decided to hang out in the shade for a while. 

Brother played with the Bocce Balls.

While Aiko chugged down the coconut water. 

I decided to try "hanging" the hammock. There wasn't much shade outside of the we didn't hang out too much there. 

You can just barely see them canoeing and kayaking out there. 

Makelle brought back a nice little token. Sadly, he had already passed.

I was worried that our little worn canoe would have tipped over multiple times by now, luckily, the kids were super good. 
Olyvia and I decided it was our turn to take the babes out on the water. 

I was kind of nervous, these two can get quite crazy these days and I did NOT want to be in the water. 

I mean, it was kind of seriously, gross. 
See the velvety the way the water ripples? While the water was not my favorite, it really was a lovely little spot. 

One of Melinda's cooking specialties is a big bowl of pasta with fresh herbs and olive oil. The kids go crazy over it. Luckily, she makes enough for EVERYONE to share. We don't mind some friendly germs every now and again. 

While we played some Bocce Ball, Olyvia was just out in the water, spinning all around. She's a crazy water girl. 

Bocce Ball is basically trying to through your ball as close as you can to the little white ball. You get two chances. 

Yeah, it doesn't sound that fun, but it REALLY is. 

I tried to get a picture of the pelican, but it's not very good. Have you seen this guys? They are HUGE! 

We also found some cute little ducklings, that were definitely, not afraid of humans. 

After just a few short hours, we decided it was time to head out. It was getting hotter and hotter. Next time, we'll be bringing some fishing gear. Did you know that kids under 12 can fish for free? 

Even if you don't have a canoe or fishing pole, you can stroll around the Lake. It's paved some of the way and then it has a dirt path. It's the perfect place to take the kids to do some exploring!
