I is for...

Island Park, Idaho...where we had the Anderson Family Reunion over the weekend. (That's why I haven't alphablogged for a few days). I is also for my sweet Isabelle. But I am going to blog about the reunion. It was such a blast to get together with family for 3 days for fun, food, games, and much more. We got to see family we haven't seen for awhile and I also met some family that I hadn't before. Yes, even after being married 3 1/2 years I still hadn't met all of the Anderson side of Trav's family. (There are still people on the Simon side that I haven't met either).
It is so fun to be a part of a big family. I guess it can be a little crazy, too, but it was fun. I took 150 pictures (no suprise there, right?) so here goes my attempt at posting a ton...

Among other events of the weekend, a few things that happened: Travis went golfing,Riley skinned her knee and was SO sad about it, Riley got to spend some time outside and loved it (as usual), we played some volleyball, listened to stories (Thanks for the entertainment, Josh), ate way too much food, got far too little sleep (that's what you get for staying in the bunk house with single peope!), and I got to take a lot of pictures! It was so great to get together and get away! We are sad we only get to do that every other year. 2010 won't come quick enough. We love you all, Anderson family!
