We spent Sunday evening and all of Monday in Bear River. My Grandpa Varge was asked to give a speech at Bear River's annual Memorial Day service. He did a lovely job! His friend, who also happens to be a girl (wink), travelled up with him. Her name is Cecil, she is a lovely lady.
Bear River is only about 2 1/2 hours from Rexburg so we decided to go down and be with him while her was there. Geri and our friend Katy came with us. My dad, Emma and Andrew decided to come at the last minute. So did my Aunt and Uncle, Amy and Clark, and their family. It was like a mini-family reunion! I'm pretty sure we are related to half the people in that town by some way or another:) It was so much fun to be with our family! We had the BEST time!
My grandpa has remained very close to his brother and sisters over the years and its has given us the wonderful opportunity to grow up knowing them and the ability to spend time with them and their children and their grandchildren. I feel so blessed to be part of such a wonderful family! I love being with my grandparents and my great-aunts and uncles. I love listening to their stories. They have so much to share and to teach!
I wish I had more pictures of the whole group but I forgot my camera! I was so disappointed! Luckily Katy had hers and shared her pictures with me. Somehow she left out all the pictures of herself though! You little stinker, Katy!!!
