Eden

A couple weeks ago we had a Hansen family reunion in Eden Utah. I don't think my mom could have picked a better spot. There was so much to do and see and all the seeing was so picturesque! It really was gorgeous, a hidden gem in Utah.
We had a lot of fun being together as a family and really, a big hooray is needed for my Mom and Dad who put so much time and effort into  making sure we had such a great time. These are just some of the activities we did, and I'm warning you there are a lot of pictures! I already have a hard enough time narrowing down pictures with just my little family, but when I get my big family together with so many fun activities its impossible to narrow down.

We took family pictures, so that is why we are all dressed up in the next few pictures. It was a perfect setting for family pictures.

These next photos were taken with my phone (hence the smaller pictures, ha! Sometimes its just so much easier to pull out my phone instead of our big camera).

Everyday my mom made sure we had a devotional. Each of the kids and their spouses were able to impart some of their thoughts and wisdom to the rest of us. I love my family, for their strength, faith and courage. And because we are family, we know each others weaknesses and the hardships we each go through, more than anyone else. But even despite the imperfections I am glad we are a family that can love, forgive and support one another. I'm grateful for my big, crazy and ever growing family. They are the best.

Your family sounds incredible. How lucky are all of you?! The scenery and your bright overexposed photography style capture it all so perfectly--I can just feel the happiness radiating.
