Silver Lining: Hebgen = Heaven

Hebgen = Heaven

I'm back from vacation!

I'm back from vacation :(

Let me explain about Hebgen for a second. It's a lake in Montana. My extended family {I mean extended. My great-grandfather started this tradition almost 100 years ago} owns some land near West Yellowstone.

Every year, all my grandparents' descendants cram themselves in a few cabins. We swim and hike and ATV and boat and explore and canoe and laugh and eat. We come back with sunburns and mosquito bites, and I love that place more than anything.

It's heaven. I didn't even take any pictures, I was so in heaven. {Except the occasional instagram.}

This year, we tried to take some family pictures. {This is just my immediate family, mind you. Remember my crazy huge awesome blended family?} Let me tell you, trying to get us all matchy and then picking through a field of horse manure and wildflowers was a sight to behold.

This is us on a normal day. Kisses, silly faces, a bare nipple, and a polo shirt that reaches to the knees.

Oh I love that place. Mosquito bites and all.

Where's heaven on earth for you?


  1. looks like so much fun. so jealous.
    my heaven is lake tahoe, we normally go every year for the 4th, but the past 2 years i have been working/going to school. love places like this


  2. Looks like so much fun!! One of my heavens on earth is Disneyland. That's at the top of the list right now, maybe because I'm going in a few months. :)
