It's that time of the year for family reunions!! I've decided that the anticipation leading up to the reunion and the memories you have after are worth the craziness during the reunion. With about 50 people coming and going, eating and sleeping and dancing and singing for 4 days you can only imagine the fun we had.
Actually, I have to give my mom credit for putting on a great reunion at Bear Lake. It was fun to see cousins, aunts and uncles that I don't get to see too often. There were some great stories shared and lots of laughter to go around. With Grandpa and Grandma B getting up there in years, you start to really cherish the time you have with them and enjoy hearing their stories.
I finally made it to Bloomington Lake. It's only about 20 minutes away from Bear Lake and you can drive most of the way and then hike in about 1/4 of a mile. You feel like you are in a whole new world. We saw this big black spot on top of the cliffs across the lake and thought for sure it was a bear. We watched it for a while and could have sworn that it was sitting there turning it's head side to side. Finally, Jensen told us that it was just a burned off tree stump that we were getting all hyped up over. Rachel was ready to take off running if that tree stump started to move. She had just told us about the "Bears and Prayers" story she had just seen about a man who was attacked by a bear and lived to tell about it. She kept an eye on that stump the whole time we were there.
Thanks for the memories B family!
