A fun filled long weekend in Challis, ID was had by the Brown's! All of my brothers made it for at least a day and some of us where there for 3 days! Lots of food, fun and fellowship made the trip very memorable for all. Challis Hot Springs is a great place to stay and we've booked it for next year's reunion! While a long 5 hour drive with construction started out the trip, we went home through Craters of the Moon and even saw the fault line from the big 1983 earthquake!
Here's a group picture. The guy in the middle taking a picture is my brother, Mahlon. From L to R: Roy, Virginia, Melynda, Reggie, Emily, Troy, Mom. Troy is my brother and Emily his wife.
We were missing my three nephews this year, Erik and his new bride, Mandy, Tyler and his wife Lisa and Brady. Erik's and Brady were in Texas on vacation and Ty's wife Lisa is pregnant (due in Nov) and they didn't make it. We're hoping next year we can all be there!
We got to see Rocky Mountain Sheep; which was really amazing - 13 of them in all! The guys floated the river, everyone enjoyed the hot springs pools and time passed too quickly. On Saturday, Roy and I did tell everyone that there would be a new addition come March '07. The kids thought it was some sort of sick joke but we assured them, it was real.
All in all, here's who was there: The Parents/Grandparents, oldest child Larry, his wife Steph and their daughter Virginia; next son Mahlon and his wife Laura, third son Troy and wife Emily, me - Joy and hubby Roy and their tribe: Troy, Melynda, Taylor, Paco and Reggie. Another great time to record in our memories!
