Bear Lake [part four]

We had family pictures done in Bear Lake, of the whole group.  I love that we get these done every three years at the reunion.  Marc and Betty pay for the photographer and pay for a big picture that is framed of everyone and given to us to put in our homes.  My kids love looking at it and pointing out who everyone is.

I love how the pictures turned out!  Shari was in charge and did a great job coming up with what colors to wear and where to get them done.

After family pictures we drove up to ...... some lake, that I can't remember what it's called.  It took about 45 minutes to get to the top and then was a 1/2 mile hike to the lake.  It was gorgeous up there.

So pretty!  Joe got in and swam across the whole thing (and back) and John and Shari got in too.  John eventually convinced me to get in -- it was freezing (you can see the snow on the ground still)!  It took my breath away the whole time I was in it, but the kids thought it was great that we got in.

It was such a great week!  I really had ZERO complaints about anything and just really loved being together as a family and playing in the lake.  I'm so grateful to be married in to such an amazing family.
