family reunion (part II)

Posted on: 1.10.2013

I had so many pictures from our reunion it was really hard to put these into just two posts! So I decided to do the first post mostly about the family time at the reunion and kept this post for the adventure and fun of the reunion :)

As mentioned the reunion was full of snowmobiling, hot tubs, games and more! Island Park Idaho was just breathtaking! The pines went on for miles and were covered in snow, I felt like I was in a fairy tale - infact our lodge area was called enchanted forest, and it was very fitting! When driving through the woods I kept saying it looked like we were heading to Narnia :)

I had never been snowmobiling before but I have done a lot of four wheeling, so it wasn't an entirely new idea. It was so much fun to go out and explore and jump off (little) bumps haha Trevor liked the big ones which freaked me out, but you get the idea. I think I had the most fun driving with my sister Kira because we didn't scare each other too much but were just adventurous enough to be fully enjoying ourselves! Although, Kira did make me squeeze a little tighter a couple times (you know what I am talking about Kira haha)

We got bored with the regular sledding and decided to strap ourselves to the back of the snowmobiles, probably not the safest thing ever, but hey, we had helmets, and it was SO MUCH FUN!

Oh, don't mind Trevor's pose... *shaking head over here*

&what is the best way to end a day in the snow?! HOT CHOCOLATE :)


I would have liked to end with the big family photo of everyone that came to the reunion (it was an undertaking to take the picture haha!) but my Aunt hasn't sent them out yet, so I thought instead I would end with a random compilation of the videos from my iPhone :)

Oh, and for those on Instagram, and those into make up &beauty products ;)

  10. I'm so glad you put up the video, because in the photos, all I wanted to know was how that chain looked in motion! hahaha This looks like it was a blast; I'm envious! My mom is one of ten kids, so we also have a huge family. We have a reunion every year, but it's just a huge picnic at someone's house sometime during the summer. It's still a lot of fun, but yours looked SUPER fun. :)

    1. Oh my gosh Kristal, yes, YES it was! haha I would say that I am just now starting to get used to it and that is after about 6 years! haha It has been a major adjustment because San Diego pretty much has the same weather all year round!

  19. hi! we were blog friends once upon a time and somehow the other day i saw your name connected with a friend's name, maybe on instagram? this part of the story is vague and uninteresting but the next part is great and this is why: my husband was by me when i saw your name and i remembered your husband is also in law school and i said, "this girl's husband is in law school at BYU - same year as you" and we established the connection that my husband, tanner frei, knows your husband from their LSAT prep course! i thought that was a nice connection. too bad we're in different states so we can't be lonely law school wives together but hopefully this second year is treating you nicely!

    end of my novel comment :-)
