luv my sisters, missed you j-bird!

after the freeze reunion we headed up to island park for the kesler reunion...this year we bunked at a bigger cabin but docked by day at the "historic" kesler cabin on the waterfront. it was really fun to stay at the bigger cabin...there was enough room for gatherings for this big family (18 grandkids under 8!). we had some great times..."WIN it in a MINUTE", annual island scavenger hunt, family feud, "crap" on your neighbor - with consequences: why do i lose when it is jumping into the lake at midnight, "HOT SEAT", family birthday party, & if you want to laugh, check out this VIDEO!

here's to the great outdoors...

lots of skiing & water front time...

kids water obstacle course with rewards!

vanny's first time up on 2...

"linked IN love"!

annual hike...big springs nature walk

somebody was in heaven...

all the families did a really amazing job at focusing the adult games around the kids as well...vanny doing the WIN it in a MINUTE cup game...

oh the memories...

family birthday celebration!

lots of cousin time!

cam's early morning obsession...
we luv you freeze & kesler fam...
so happy to be a part of both!

YEAH! I am really excited you will be living in Utah! Yes, please can we hang out more! And I can't believe you went to South AFrica. That is amazing. It sounded life changing. Seriously. What an awesome experience. Call me up when you get settled!!!

I'm sure Jacqui had a few choice words for you when she heard you were moving. And really….Utah County?!? Utah is one thing but Utah County?!? Davis County is where the funs at :)

Ming said...

I'm happy for you guys but selfishly HATE that you're moving! All the festivities with family look like a ton of fun.

Rosanne said...

Congrats on the exciting "move" news! Enjoy being closer to your families. Also, I'm a big nerd and have watched the Kesler Jump (Glee) video about a hundred times (no, I'm not kidding) - Landon came up to play in a golf tourney with Lance right after that reunion and showed us the video. I fell in love with the video and have showed co-workers and other friends and my girls love it too. I think it's awesome and so fun! Apparently I'm a little obsessed with the awesomeness that is the Kesler family, so I've already arranged my girls to marry Landon and SJ's boys. Hayley and Kobe are already buds - so they'll be a great match. And My 4-yr old Samantha has a little crush on Cooper (she likes the older boys, I guess!). So if that all works out, we'll be a part of the Kesler fam. one day. ;) (Man, how's that for a "book" of a comment?! sorry) Glad you had so much fun. And I love your header picture - so cute!

KESLER KREW...Cami said...

mind! at least we will still be able to keep in touch via UTAH connections...quit trying to ditch me already :)

rosanne~ luved the story book, just keep it coming! i definatly think pre-arranged marriages should come back...maybe we could start that again...:)

The Brown's said...

We definitely want to get together regularly with you guys. And yes....you are the mighty winner of the t-shirt give away! haha! I'll save it for you and bring it when you get here so you don't have to bother packing one more thing. Can't wait to have you here! Love you guys!!!
