My friend Ann organized a fun getaway every Wednesday of June and July. It was great and I'm sad that it's over for this summer! Last week we went to Blackridge Reservoir- a neighborhood lake at the top of Herriman. It's a manmade lake and small like a pond. Someday it will have lots of trees and shrubbery, but for now it's just a nice, clean, sandy beach with cool water, bathrooms and lots of garbage cans to keep it clean. The boys had lots of fun playing, and I had fun talking with my friends.
Be sure to bring some shade and toys for the kids to float... and maybe some lifejackets if your kids are into swimming. And always bring more food, snacks and water than you think you need- swimming makes the kids HUNGRY! You might want to get there early as there is limited parking for now. I'm pretty sure my kids thought we were in California... a mini beach vacation just up the road!
