Snarr Family Reunion 2014


In early October we took a trip to San Diego where we stayed at the Lawrence Welk resort with Ben's family.  It was one of our favorite reunions… who doesn't love a week at the beach!? 

(hope to eventually update this photo with the original taken)

The theme for this reunion was “Our Family is Our Treasure.” We each took turns planning a devotional and serving up a dinner where we did our best to center it around the theme. The kiddo's had a treasure hunt on the beach, and we all returned home with a treasure chest Christmas ornament. I love how Syd chooses a theme for each reunion because it makes it all the more memorable and meaningful.   



Ben created a pirate themed "Don't Eat Pete."

We visited the gorgeous San Diego Temple.

 We visited the Mormon Battalion Visitors Center. It was such an entertaining experience, one that both kids and adults can enjoy. 

Panning for gold!

We had a girls day out, spent at a lovely spa, where we lounged by the pool, soaked in the hot tubs, received massages and had fun in the mud baths.
The guys spent their day out playing golf, riding motorized bicycles and eating bbq.

A little photo shoot in our Sunday best, outside of the chapel in San Diego… (Finn was being a cheese!)

Brit's Birthday

Ben surprised me with tickets to the live show of the Last Comic Standing finalists tour. We followed the tv-show religiously. It was our, put your feet up, eat ice cream and laugh your bum off weekly event that we both needed and looked forward to.  Ben even paid the extra money so that we could meet the cast before-hand. Yup--we were VIP guests and sat in one of the front rows. It was a great show and a great way to celebrate turning 29. (eek!)
