I look forward to our family reunion every year. Nothing beats enjoying nature with my relatives. We had a great time in Cub River, Idaho. There was so much to do. We had a serious horse shoe tournament. Matt was the humble winner! There was so much delicious food-my family sure knows how to make some mean dutch oven food. The kids went on a scavenger hunt, made lots of crafts, and ate as much candy as they wanted. The adults shared pictures, stories, and enjoyed each other's company.
We sat around the camp fire learning lots of things about each other. It's amazing "the dirt" we're willing to share about ourselves when playing "Two Truths and One Lie."
Mom and Dad rented the exact same trailer they've rented for the past three years. It was nice of them to let us bunk with them. Even BM slept through the night and was a happy camper.
Uncle Craiger with his grand kids who were pretending to be puppy dogs and lick him.
Abby & Aunt Nadine. Nadine planned this year's reunion and did a great job! I can't believe she was able to get people to sing songs. Even my dad enjoyed cranking out a tune.
Grandpa and BM chilling by the campfire.
BM is wearing an umbrella size hat but we were worried about the sun kissing his delicate skin (he has no chance with whitie white parents).
There were crafts for all ages to participate in!
There is something so rejuvenating about being in nature. I love the smell of the campfire, birds singing as the sun rises, the trees dancing in the breeze, and watching the river hurry along its way.
Thanks McDermotts for the great time. I love you all!
