I keep meaning to wait to post this until I get all the pictures ready to explain all the ins and outs of the reunion but I can’t seem to get to that so I’m posting this first. I love Elle’s eye for catching things. She has taken over my camera which kills me because it’s always gone, but it also makes me so proud of that girl. I love this video catching snippets of the reunion this year: https://vimeo.com/71126216 Note: I promise all those kids participated in the “Fear Factor” willingly! Makes me miss those beautiful days at the lake.
Here’s a selection of pictures from the grand 2007 reunion. Boy howdy we had fun. JUMPING Aunt Char is a world-famous jumper. She tried to teach us all how to…

This is awesome. What fun memories, I love seeing the videos and it's so good you guys can get together every year to do this.
That was awesome!
That was awesome. Where do you get lanterns like that? I would love to grab my hand on some for our son's Angel day.
Is that your house on the lake?? I was just there on last week and our friends took us over on wave runners to see the house they just sold a fews ago right down from there and I saw that house and thought it was beautiful! So fun that your family gets to spend time there together like that – its a beautiful place.
Looks like you had another amazing reunion. So fun to see your pictures every year but even more fun to see it in video. Elle did an awesome job putting this together!!!
Love the video! What a treasure!
Great video! You guys are so inspiring!
that video was amazing!!! looks like such fun
You seemed to have had a lot of fun! As a matter of fact (I would call it a fun fact, except that it's not fun at all) these lanterns have become illegal in Germany, because there had been too many accidents from coming down.
I saw this from Saren's blog post today. Loved it! Love the music. She does have a good eye.
I really enjoyed watching this video. What a fun and creative way to create family memories!
Tell Elle that I'm saving her video for last on our reunion posts because it perfectly captured all I'm trying to show in pictures but so much better "for real life". LOVE that girl for doing this. It always makes me cry a little, not only because we had so much fun but because she is so gifted at finding the moments!
Elle is definitely a talented girl. I've been trying to figure out how to edit my videos and add music to them. What program did she use to edit this video?
