Oh, What Do {WE} Do in the Summertime?

When all the world is green...

I love the color green. It's such a peaceful color. And that's exactly why I love summertime at Fish Lake. No phones, computers, cable, but plenty of family, free time, good food, and fresh air.

Daily activities: picking wildflowers and climbing over rocks on the shore. This is one of my all time favorite places on earth. Sometimes I sit on the park bench that is so perfectly and thoughtfully placed there and watch the children play at the shore of the lake.



A rainy hike/walk with the dads on a newly discovered trail.

I'm guessing this will be the photo that will grace the front of Grandma & Grandpa's 2009 Christmas card.
We love the matching Utah Red sweatshirts.
Thanks Grandma

Another Fish Lake tradition getting a tubby in the kitchen sink.

New tradition: Hallabucks and shopping at the Hallen Store.

Hope to be back soon Fish Lake.

It was the greatest day of my life as I was driving and I saw a sign for Fish Lake. I immediately thought of my Young Woman's days. Which brought me back to your other stories, including when you fermented something in the car in the hot AZ sun.

Hi, where in Utah is Fish Lake? It is beautiful. What a fun and growing family the Hallens have. We need to start family vacations, something to think about. Hmmm I wonder if they would come? Have a fun and safe 4th. vicki

Beautiful pictures! Thanks again for offering Mike a corner of your porch. So many good memories. I think your sweatshirts should be navy blue though. It's a little bit more holy. :-)
