Eborn Reunion 2010 : A Good Time Was Had by All

On Saturday, July 17th, the extended family of Darrell and Edna Eborn met at The State Park on the east side of Bear Lake for a family reunion. Many of the family was able to attend and those who were unable to make it missed a good time. Family came from far and near. Those who had to travel great distances, like Erin from Texas and Hannah from Moscow and Nina and Steve's clan from Boise were especially appreciated. It was good to get together and renew old acquaintances and see how everyone is doing. It was also fun to sing happy Birthday as an extended family to Jason. Happy 43. We are a very blessed family in so many, many ways. This Reunion came about largely through the organizing efforts of Reed and Lorraine and their family. All of the rest of us wish to thank them for all of their efforts. It turned out to be a great success and I was especially glad they we decided to have another Family Reunion next summer. Now we all have something to look forward to again.
I took lots of pictures and am including a few of them here. I'm sorry if you weren't included in the pictures. No slight is intended. It's just that there are a lot of us.
Reed not only did most of the organizing, but also did most of the cooking and took as many as wanted to go for a ride on his wave runner. Thanks, Reed, for everything.



Everyone was happy to see Michelle and her sweet kids. Here is Iris giving Michelle a hug.
Rachel was actually the one who suggested the family Reunion. Nothing happens unless someone plants the seed. Thanks, Rachel. She is going to be the new Vice Principal at a new Elementary School in Moab. I think some of the family is hoping she will have a big basement down there. Good luck in your new assignment.
Here are Justin and Gail recalling old times.
Ryan, Samantha, and MEgan relaxing a bit.

Here is Philip trying to prove his tough guy reputation, ha, I think, the may have met his match in Garrett, Gavin, and Ethan.
Here are Myrna and Dean. They are still looking good. It was good to see those of your family who made the journey to the Reunion.

No family reunion would be complete without plenty of great food and conversation. This one was no exception.
And of course, if you come to Bear Lake for a Reunion, you have to spend some time cooling of and having fun in the cool waters of Beautiful Bear Lake. This is just a small sample of all the fun that was had in the lake and on the beach.

Again , thanks to all who came. Please stay in touch and keep us informed about what is happening in your family.
