Hunter and I slept back at my in-law's house at night because he had been having teething issues, and I didn't think camping with him would go over terribly well. Gabe and Cory did campout though - and enjoyed it. We also got to enjoy the trails around the area and do some Ranger rides on our new Ranger (Cory sold our red ranger, and bought a new one last week - it's orange and pretty cool.)
The scenery was great, the weather was almost perfect, and the company fantastic.
This weekend I felt an overwhelming gratitude to be a part of the Ellis Family. Truly - marrying into this family was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Grandma and Grandpa Ellis are seriously some of the best people I know on this earth. Loving, non-judgmental, kind, close to the Lord, all around awesome people. I really think that people from Idaho are just that way (in general) - they are just down-home, good people.
So thank you Kim and Tammy for putting on such an awesome reunion (Cory's parents were in charge this year). Thank you to all of the family members who traveled to attend the reunion. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Ellis for raising awesome children who have also raised pretty stellar kids. I hope and pray that Cory and I can carry on the legacy of the Ellis family and raise upstanding children who are strong in the gospel and who honor and value family.
