Okay, so family reunions really don't stink. But this message was scrawled
in my cousins cabin and we all found it quite funny.
We had a GREAT family reunion in Island Park, ID this past weekend.
We've never had a family reunion on my mom's side
of the family so this was the first of hopefully many more gatherings.
We totaled 24 (which is not a lot compared to some families) but we
were only missing three family members - not too shabby.
I dreaded the 4+ hour car drive but that was nothing
compared to some of the distances: Washington, DC, Alabama,
Las Vegas and Boise.
We spent our extended weekend at Mack's Inn and it was...rustic.
The cabins are pretty dated and it took some of us
awhile to get used to no tv, wi-fi and starbucks (blake)
but surprisingly we made do just fine.
I love my family so much and we all seemed
to have a fun time and laughed, ate, relaxed and played too much.
Floating the river, campfires, naps, Yellowstone,
smoked ribs, mosquitos, "not a bite" fishing trips,
sunburns, blake's breakfast making skills,
s'mores, exploring walks, moose sightings,
This is ~extreme picture overload~
so unless you're family you will probably get bored quick.
But the trip was too fun not to document...
gammy let Lucy pick out her "puffalo"
some of us eating pizza in West Yellowstone
(sorry mom - cut out again)
mama buffalo & baby - just strolling by
Amber, Bonita and Spencer - s'morin it up!
Sandy, Ella, Lucy and Amber - sunset strolls
Haylie - once again making my dreams come true with any pose I ask of her!
our family pic of the trip - and I doubt this will be the xmas card pic
moose & baby we saw during our float trip down the Snake river
and then we got stuck
these two are getting annoying with every picture
they're in being cute (and xmas card worthy)
before her cliff dive
see, family reunions don't stink!
Hopefully we'll see you again Mack's!
