Larsen Family Reunion 2008...

Okay, I have finally gotten all of my pictures downloaded and this post is filled with them! We had such a great time at the LFO reunion this year. One of the best things about the reunion was the location. We went back to our roots and gathered in Rexburg, Idaho where my mom grew up.

When I pull into Rexburg after that long drive, I always feel so connected, truly like I am returning home. I have the fondest memories of summers at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Rexburg and it was so great to take my own son there where so much of our family history is. The real best thing about the reunions though is just the quality family time where we bask in the unconditional love of our greatest support system.

The highlights were the individual family reports, attending the new Rexburg Temple with many of the family, Dutch oven apple cobbler (too die for!), and listening to my Grandparents during the Sunday Service express their love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and their love for every member of our family. They have truly created a legacy of eternal love.

Here are some of my favorite pictures:
