We have a Jewkes Family Reunion (as in extended Jewkes family) about every three years. We missed it last time around because it was a few weeks before Oliver was born. So, we made the trek out to St. George, UT for the much anticipated event this year. My Mom even convinced us all to come out a few days early to hang out with just my immediate family in Brianhead, UT (just a couple hours from St. George). Brianhead was so beautiful and we stayed at a great cabin at the resort that actually housed all 40 or so of us. We went running together a couple times, had some great meals cooked by Jenn, Rachel, and Jessica, spent the afternoon at Navajo Lake, and even managed to catch The Batchelorette.
Some of the grandkids posing in front of a lookout point at Brianhead. It was sooooo pretty up there.
Hope this isn't too WT for ya'll, but Christian stripped (here he's pictured with his shorts on, but those were soon shed) so he could swim across Navajo Lake and back. It's a lot further than it looks.
Oliver was being very daring in the water and his shorts were actually soaked by the end of the afternoon.
Introducing the Jewkes Joggers!!! Jim, Jenn, Dagmar, Jessica, Julie, and me. Except for Dagmar, we're all training for the St. George Marathon in October. Jim is the mastermind behind all of our training and he keeps us motivated with tips and advice. Anyway, while we were in Brianhead, we ran to the top of a mountain. Yes, you read that right. 3.5 miles up and 3.5 down.
