We just finished the most epic Boyce Fam Jam! (The newest name for our family reunion.) It was a wonderful week of cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and laughing. We all went up to grandma’s house but we stayed in hotels because there are so many of us! I actually absolutely loved the hotel aspect. We would stay up late in the lobby and/or go swimming or just hang out.
The first night, we found out that Dallin H. Oaks was staying on our floor so we casually waited by the door in the lobby all night….he never came. Sooo he was probably already in his room because my cousin saw him in the morning. Haha we also saw the General Relief Society President & the guy who does Music & the Spoken Word. Didn’t realize we were at a church headquarters retreat, but there was just no other explanation for it. ?
Other highlights of the reunion included a red neck slip and slide that slid down a mountain, picking apples from grandpa’s apple trees together, ordering late night pizzas & exchanging stories, going to a church history pageant out in the middle of nowhere, a little Salt Lake impromptu shopping trip, a testimony meeting, Swig, making cookies, & the non-stop laughs. I love my sweet, crazy family!
Also, it’s National Sisters Day & I’m so glad I got to spend it with my sister. We laugh so hard together and I love her so much! So glad she’s my forever sissy & twin. ?
What do you guys do for family reunions? Any traditions? I would love to hear any ideas you have as we will be planning some in the future. Love y’all!
