Reunion & Birthday

The Pack Family Reunion was held at Camp Morrison in McCall, Idaho on June 10-12. Camp Morrison is famous in the Pack family. It has had special meaning for many years. Phil's brother ran this camp for many years and many Pack relatives have worked there. Phil spent many summers working there himself. Even after we were married we worked up there together when Reg was just a few months old. It is beautiful up there and the perfect place for so many of us to gather. There were over 100 Pack relatives there at the reunion. Phil is the youngest of 9 children and there are 68 grandchildren and I couldn't begin to tell you how many great-grandchildren there are. It was great to reconnect with so many. It was also our last time to camp and be with Reggie before his mission. So glad we had this time together.

Jenna had her 9th birthday while we were up there and she was pretty excited to have so many people sing "Happy Birthday" to her. She had it all planned out what she wanted and how she wanted us to "surprise" her in the morning. She also wanted to fish on her birthday because it was "Free Fishing Day" in Idaho. Phil's sister Vurvian and her husband, Doug, live in Council which isn't that far away. On our way home, we stopped by a lake and Doug took Phil, Rob and Jenna out on his little boat to fish. It was a comedy of errors. The wind was blowing and it was very cold. Phil had to work pretty hard at rowing just to stay in the same place and any wrong move they would have tipped over. Each time Jenna would touch the real it would turn in to a giant knot. It definitely didn't turn out quite like the fishing experience we thought it would be but fun still the same.

I'm so glad you had a fun Reunion and you didn't go for an adventurous 6 hour hike.
