The Mountains are Calling

Tuesday, August 9, 2016

We recently returned from my family's week-long reunion in McCall, Idaho and another week in Utah.  Between a ghost banging a pipe below our bed and kids that didn't sleep well, I don't think I've ever left a vacation more exhausted (hence the severe lack of posting!).  BUT, I'd absolutely do it all over again for views like this:

Oops, how'd that get in here?!

If you're jealous, I'll pull it back a bit.

Every summer, my family gathers in one big house.  There are 18 grandkids, 7 kids, 5 spouses, and my parents.  It's loud, it's crazy, and it's a really good time.  My little family are the only ones outside of the same county in Utah, so I really relish this time for my kids to spend with their extended family.  We go kayaking down rivers, swimming and boating in a lake, hike a ton, and eat so, so much ice cream.  To top it off, there is limited internet connection and I don't wear a lick of make up for seven straight days.  I really don't know how it can get better than that.  So instead of rehash every day, I'll just leave you with some photos of what I'm currently missing, most of which entail us being very dirty and stinky.

Until next year, McCall!

  1. What a beautiful spot in Idaho! That's the thing about family vacations--they're so exhausting in the moment, but you take away such special memories. Thank goodness for photos to help us remember the good and forget (most of) the bad. :) And you are stunning with no make-up. Lucky duck!


I love to hear from you and try to respond to most comments. Thank you!
