All last week, we were in Whitefish Lake, Montana (my happy place). About every other Summer, we meet my mom’s side of the family (40+ people) for a family reunion. We have been renting condos on Whitefish Lake for years. My mom has memories of Whitefish when she was little, and I love that now my kids are making memories there too.
This year was a little different. A few of us got sick (oye!). We had some kind of bug moving around all of us. It was a bummer! My uncle Jeff (with two f’s ) gave me some kind of anti-nausea pill and it knocked me out for a whole day. Also, Aiden fell down and ..almost.. knocked out a front tooth. There was bleeding and a cut lip. His tooth looks so much better, but it was definitely a big scare. We also had rain on our last day. Other than THAT, we had a great time.
Highlights from the week included jumping off the dock over and over again, paddle boarding, fishing and pretend fishing (if your name is Aiden), skipping rocks on the lake, seeing family who we look forward to seeing at this time every year, and ALWAYS eating really well.
We really missed my mom’s parents who haven’t been able to join us for the last few years. Although we all get a kick out of the fact that my Grandma Kae is still highly involved in the menu planning even when she’s not there.
Here’s a look at our Whitefish trip in pictures:
Here’s a fun look back at our trip to Whitefish in 2010.
Have you ever been to Whitefish Lake, Montana? Or Kalispell, Montana?
PS. Happy Pioneer Day in Utah today! This year more than ever, I have a new appreciation for the Mormon Pioneers.
