Here’s a selection of pictures from the grand 2007 reunion.
Boy howdy we had fun.
She tried to teach us all how to do it…
looks like the cousins need a little practice…
So there’s this little, gorgeous lake up in the mountains by Bear Lake. I vaguely remember going here when I was really young, and my brothers make a point of going every year, and make a point of bragging about jumping off the rope swing into the icy water that fills the lake from a nearby glacier. How did they not drag us all up there so we could all soak in that beauty? It’s a long, windy, tiny road up into the mountains and it’s drenched in wild flowers and pure green. We had SO much fun up there, especially since the three oldest kids and I got up the guts to do the rope swing (Dave had already gone home by then). My brother Eli led the way, and then little cousin Ashton. It sure took some serious coaxing to get my kids to do it, but man oh man did they love it after they did it. Even Aunt Kristi decided she needed to do it in her clothes (she hadn’t worn her swim suit after all the talk of ice water and looking at the black clouds blanketing the sky…it rained while we were up there). That was a fun day.
Grandfather knows how to show these guys a good time on the horses.
@ the Beach…one of the most gorgeous spots ever
Dave thinks I edited to get these colors but that’s exactly how it looks.
I’m telling you, there are different colors every day and it is so gorgeous.
tried to go on two skis between them, backflips, etc (just kidding on the back flips,
but that would be a good idea for next year)…three at once…we used to do four when we were little, but only three ropes
this year and Max was pretty excited to get to be out there…
Elle did about the same thing and wasn’t too interested in trying again…but Max on the other hand went nuts trying everything including knee boarding, wake boarding, slaloming, doubling, tripling, every time he could get out there on the boat he was there. check out the tongue. I think it gives him extra power…
Loved all the photos!!!! Now I feel like I am all caught up on your life. Blogging is fun that way. Fun to see all the Eyre grandkids, there are alot of them and I am sure more to come in the future. Glad you had a great summer. It’s sad to think summer is over! Later!
Fantastic update Shawns. The pictures bring to life all the good times you all have had this summer. I especially like the rope swing place. That sounds like my kind of fun. Love you all to pieces. Good luck with school starting!
AWESOME PHOTOS!!! I especially love all the jumping ones. I am gong to have to steal that idea and take annual jumping pictures! I also loved the sepia with a bit of color…..your going to have to teach me how to do that someday! I love you and am so glad you had such a fantastic time. Glad to have you back too!
Wow! Every single one is a great shot, and what a fun time you guys had 🙂 You are really a talented photographer, Shawni. I think the jumping ones are my favorites too! Enjoy getting back into the rhythm of Fall… even this early in August 🙂
