I am really blessed to live so close to most of my family and sometimes I forget that my mom has spent most of her adult life living far away from hers. I think the last time a majority of my mom's side of the family was together was for my grandpa's funeral six years ago. My cousin Tiffany started the wheels of a reunion in motion and it all came to fruition this past weekend. I wasn't sure we would be able to make it but I am so glad we did. We started Friday night by meeting at a park for cookies, kickball and catching up. Then Saturday was filled with memories, pictures with grandma, a rock wall, bounce house, water slide, swimming, water rockets and a small program. Tiffany did a fantastic job!
|"Memory Lane" Some old clothes that belonged to my mom and her siblings. It was such a cute way to display the memories, and for my grand ma to clean out her storage;)|
|Kaylee and Emily with Grandma great and her cute hats|
|Rock wall Ashton, Dalin(I think) and Aiden. I didn't get a picture of Kaylee:(|
|After church we visited the Provo temple. My parents were married here, and I used to work across the street at the MTC bookstore when I was in college. It was fun to see the excitement of the missionaries spending the sabbath on the grounds:)|
|We had dinner with Uncle Jeff, Aunt MaryLou, Josh, Jason and Austin at a water park. Jeff was kind enough to challenge the kids to make it across the water part of the park while balancing a cup on their head.|
|Dalin's pants got pretty wet while we were at the park so Austin let us put them in the dryer and let him borrow these shorts. It was a picture to send to Chris, the ultimate BYU fan.|
