Jacksons in Montana


We love returning to Montana in the summers for some lakeside fun. My incredibly generous uncle offered his house for another reunion, and we soaked it up!

This is my family! We're growing every year! It's always so fun to get together and always a zoo.

I wish I'd grabbed my camera more often--the only day I took it out was for these posed family pictures and a few shots on the lake after. But I definitely tried to live in the moment and enjoy the vacation and I'm glad I did.

We are so lucky to have Grams join our family reunions almost every year. We love the tea parties and the dough babies and the banana bread and most of all her company and her hilarious sense of humor.

I wish we could go every summer. This lake is a part of my childhood, a part of my mother's childhood, and such a serene and special place to relax and enjoy family time.
