Reunion Trip: Day Five


Day Five: Crowder State Park, MO to Nauvoo, IL (Driving for 3 hours)

This was what we’d planned our whole trip around. The reunion! We spent some time gathering supplies for things that we were in charge of for the reunion and then drove to our group cabins/camping site! It was fun to watch families arrive and settle in, visit with family that we hadn’t see for ages and to just enjoy the whole gathering excitement!


After we’d settled in, everyone gathered together for the first activity- making bleach tee-shirts!

I’ve made these before, with freezer paper that you iron on to the shirt and then spray bleach around the paper/picture. Using foam stickers was so much easier!

Some cousins got adventurous and tie-dyed their shirts. I love Ashlyn’s LOVE/CHOCOLATE shirt!

Other cousins got seriously crafty! We had a great time and only a few clothing casualties with the bleach!


While the tee-shirt making was going on, the men banded together in the kitchen and started cooking food. Let me tell you, these were the best fajitas I’ve ever had!

You know that there was some serious partying going on in the kitchen!

After dinner (and clean-up) we played the Lund’s famous candy bar game!

It was a riot! Candy winning and candy stealing! Matt and I were in charge if this activity and we had a great time picking out all of the candy!

Megan was tuckered out and fell asleep in the middle of this crazy crowd!

After the candy bar game, the Lunds had a family meeting to discuss items of business- the newsletter, the next reunion, etc.

I didn’t stay for that (it was SO late!) and brought the little guys back to the trailer so they could go to bed. Marlee got to come with us and have a sleep-over with Alison! We love Marlee so much and are glad for each and every minute we have to get our girls together!

And just for reference, here’s our triple bunk set up!
