Summer time in Bennington

We took  a quick trip to Bennington for  a couple of days in August.  It was before my moms knee surgery and before we went to Steamboat Springs, Co.  We just chilled.  We went to Bear Lake swimming one afternoon with Aunt Courtney and her cute boys.  We went to the good 'ole county fair.  I saw some friends I haven't seen forever and some good 'ole town folks.  We ate donuts and watched a tractor pull at the rodeo grounds.  I love going home in the summer time.  I like the way it smells.  I like how dark it gets at night and I LOVE all the stars.  I like to listen to my brother,  Reed, tell stories.  I love going to Bear Lake and playing in the sand and water with my kids.  I love the quiet.  I love to see the animals there.  There is no place like home.  Here are some pictures I took while I was there.  I didn't have my camera at the fair, and for that I am truly sorry.  There is nothing like the county fair.  Anyway, we had a great trip to Bennington.  Did I mention that Chad rode his bicycle from our house in Cottonwood Heights all the way to my mom and dads house in Idaho.  Yes, it took him about 11 hours and it was just a little over 200 miles.  No, I don't have any pictures of that.  Sorry!
