Loveless Reunion
Weber Memorial Park
Hellooo Family!!!!

First things first...We are sorry to be getting this out so late! We are really excited about the reunion this year! The theme is Loveless Olympics 2010. Our Amy will be newly returned from Chile. So, our family will be reunited for the first time in over a year and a half!
If you are interested in coming on Thursday or staying till Monday, let us know...we have reserved the site for ourselves, and anyone interested.
The park is in the east end of the Ogden Valley. (NOTE: The North Ogden divide will be closed for most of the summer, so do not try to use that as a route.) Whether you come from the North or the South, you will need to take the I-15. Then, you will need to get off at the 12th street/UT 39 exit. You will need to head East (toward the mountains). Follow this highway for 11.7 miles, up through beautiful Ogden Canyon, past Pineview Reservoir around to where Highway 39 turns right to Monte Cristo, and drive for about 8.4 miles. Here by Red Cliff Ranch & Café, (Causey Dr) you will note a sign that says Causey Dam, turn right and drive up the road a short ways (1.2 miles). You will see a sign on the right, saying Weber County Memorial Park. Follow the road into the park.
We are in a group site “C” that is right along the South Fork of the Ogden River. It is a beautiful site with plenty of shade and lots of space. Unfortunately, there are no showers but, we there are flush toilets at our site. Pets must be on a leash at all times. The host has to close the entrance gate at 10 PM to keep the camp safe. If you think you will arrive after that time…call us by the 15th, or the Camp Host (she tries to get to bed by 12).

We plan to have lots of fun activities. We may also go over to Causey Dam or tubing in the afternoon, to take advantage of the water fun. If you have small row boats or canoes, they would be great. If you have a small “put-put” motor, that would be fine as well. Pineview can take any boat, but it is back toward Ogden about 10 miles.
DON’T FORGET: Auction items, Skits/songs, Games (there’s lots of space to run & play things like baseball and football), Cookies for the cookie barrel, tubes & life jackets, fishing poles, UT fishing license swimsuits/water shoes/hats/sunscreen & bug repellent…
As always, there will be lots of yummy food, family fun, the auction, skits and lots of LOVE!
For those of you who won't be staying in the campground, there are several bed and breakfasts, and hotels/motels in the Ogden Valley (Huntsville area) and in Ogden area. If you have any questions, please call (801-737-5608) or e-mail mikaren76@hotmail.com .

Hellgate Campground

Welcome, welcome ya'll to the big sky state of Montana! A big Thanks to the Don and Gert Christensens; Carol and Jay, Linda and Rollin and Donna and Jay!

The family drove their wagons and rode their horses to cowboy up and lasso some fun!

The party started Friday for the early arrivals as they enjoyed the boat tour of the Gates of the Mountains. You can see the beauty of that here http://www.gatesofthemountains.com/. Thanks Carol for leading us in this expedition. Those who went enjoyed the sites and avoided some of the way too friendly mosquitoes (I think we all will remember to bing a little bit more bugspray!).
Dinner that night was Desperado Wandering Tacos so that all of the wandering family members could have their fill as they arrived. That night we all set up camp and enjoyed getting re-acquainted with games and the campfire.

Playing Games

Saturday morning we woke up to Cowboy Toast, thanks Rollin for waking up Ssooo early! Not only was their Cowboy Toast, bacon and sausage, but made to order eggs! Thanks for a great start of the day.

As always we had lots of fun items for sale at the Kids Store. Everything from suckers to water toys, from My little Ponies to coloring books! I think that there were kids of all ages who enjoyed the store this year!

Following the fun at the Kids Store Jay Z. and Jay B. graced us with their Auctioning skills! Thanks to them and the "helpers" too! As always, the family brought wonderful items, some made, some bought. Thanks to everyone for the items brought and the items purchased. Our dear Aunt Dorthy, the widow of late Jerry Christensen even sent items to help in the auction! The donations are such a wonderful way for our family to continue to having these wonderful reuoins, year after year.

For Lunch we had Wrangler sandwiches and then we were all set free to lariot some fun out in the lake. More to come...
