I know, it took me long enough.
The Bastian Family Reunion this year took place mostly in Garland, Utah. My grandma lives there next door to one of my aunts and another aunt lives in Tremonton. It went from Thursday July 22 until Saturday July 24. Thursday was everyone getting settled and saying hello to each other.
Friday we went on a hike. I don't remember the area we went to. That's my fault for not paying attention and waiting so long to blog :) It was in the mountains east of Logan, Utah. It was a pretty long hike and parts of it were kind of difficult, especially if you weren't in the best shape. It was beautiful up there though.
Friday evening was the traditional program. Usually we did a talent show of sorts but this year Michelle got Grandma's help to write about how Grandma and Grandpa met. They asked me to read Grandma's story and various others read poems, sang songs and told stories.
It was really fun to hear Grandma and Grandpa's love story and hear about Grandpa from Uncle Neil and Uncle Ken. I think everyone cried at some point and we all felt Grandpa's presence, and how much he loves Grandma and all of us.
It was a fun weekend, as always. And it was great to see some cousins that we don't get to see very often.
