So for Labor Day, since everybody had off we decided to pack up the family and head off to Antelope Island for a nice picnic. It was a beautiful day, gorgeous sunshine, nice puffy clouds and only minor hiccups, like forgetting plates (Lizzy blames it on the pregnancy brain! Haha). We decided pretty unanimously that the island is pretty, the ranch is a great place to have a picnic and it is super fun to see all the wildlife (We did see lots of birds, antelope and a snake, in addition to buffalo) but the beach is totally worth skipping. The beach is a super long walk through really soft sand (read: not fun!) and then once you get to the water's edge there are gnats galore....dead gnats intermixed with the sand and clouds of gnats that hover over the water in giant clouds...PASS!
