Bear Lake 2018


Every other year we try and do a family reunion for my side of the family. There’s 7 kids, all our spouses, and 28(and counting) grandchildren. It gets pretty wild, but it’s so fun!


This summer we spent a few days in Bear Lake playing at the beach, sadly no boating. The minute they put it in the water it started to smoke.


We spent the rest of the time eating, playing volleyball, chatting, eating some more, fire pits, famous raspberry shake runs, talent shows, more food, and the Minnetonka caves.


We have learned that Claire does NOT like heights or caves. Anytime she is in the hiking pack or carrier on a hike or this case, caves, she cries and screams haha


The swings were a big hit. The house my sister and BIL found was SO fun.



Lily fell asleep next to cousin Mason(who also fell asleep). His hand is in ice water because he burnt his little hand on the muffler of my BIL’s motor bike.


Lots of tired babes from playing hard with cousins. I loved these little snuggles.


On the way home, the kids got a little crazy! It was such a fun trip!

My 2 brothers and their wives weren’t able to make it and we missed them SO much!

I can’t wait for our next family reunion.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. I am so jealous! Looks like a great trip! My mom has 5 sisters, but only 2 have kids, when I was little we would do road trips and it was a lot of fun, we didn’t invite the dads though, only our grandpa (my mom’s dad) was allowed!
