Family Reunion '09

I loaded the pictures exactly enjoy the reunion fromt he last day (saturday) to the first day (Thursday). Oh well, it was enjoyable anyway you look at it! On the last day of the reunion the kids went on a treasure hunt. At some of the stops on the map..they had to dig up part of the treasure. Grandma's Treasure hunting was a highlight of the day...good job pirates!! AArrrgh!!
The kids on the treasure hunt with Grandma!
Hanging out around the campfire! Kai and his fish!! Great catch!!
The Whirley Pop Winners this year was a very yummy toffee popcorn made by mom and dad! Great job guys...but, remember you only get to keept he trophy until next year!!
This really was Jordan's idea. I had left Abbie's curlers at Mom and Dad's when I was there last weekend and he said that he should have crazy hair for the parade he was going to for the Duchesne City Parade (on saturday after the reunion). So, we curled his hair. He's trying to look tough for the picture...don't let it fool you...He even slept in the curlers to let them curl....and then they didn't even work that well. Oh well, I guess you need longer than one curl otherwise it looks like an elvis hairdo! LOL
This is the nature walk we went on and collected leaves, sticks, rocks and other fun nature items. We took them back to camp and used them to stamp on foam placemats. The foam was used because...paper would rip. The kids did a great job making their masterpeices. So colorful and fun!
Rian and her bag of goodies to do her masterpeice with!
The kids on the nature hike.
This is the great Chocolate Mitt game. You have to roll dice...if you are so lucky to get doubles you get to put on the oven mitts and try to get chocolate in your mouth until someone else gets doubles.
Dustin is quite the professional candy thrower/catcher. (Remember the first reunion...popcorn and grapes!!)
This is a picture of the boat building race. The team that won had to have a boat made out of household had to float and look pretty too! Mari, Adrienne and Dad won with their pirate boat! They won lego sets to build....because they are the ultimate builders!
On friday we went fishing and canoeing. The kids loved riding in the canoes. I have pictures of all the different boat rides. Even little Rian went for a Canoe ride. Reed and Justin went trolling for fish but, it was Dustin that had the luck on the shore who caught the fish. Later after the Whirley Pop contest...Dustin and Kai went back fishing. Kai caught a fish of his own. It was really Exciting!! If the kids weren't canoeing...they were throwing rocks in the lake! So much fun..endless fun!
The girls going for a canoe ride! They love it!
Isaac and Kai going for a ride in the canoe!
Grandpa and Reed took the kids for lots of canoe rides!
Even Kaden used the chopsticks!
Yummy Japanese food!!
Everyone enjoying the wonderful Japanes food!
I finally downloaded my camera and am blogging about the reunion. We had such a great time and were sad for those who couldn't join us.
The first night was Dustina and Ashley's night to do the food was Japanese food. They even decorated wtih lanterns. The kids loved it and even Isaac ate the Yakisoba (talk about miracle!) The food was delicious and it was really fun to have different food while camping. Great job guys!
This year's reunion was a ton of fun and I am really glad that we have started this reunion because I love how close our family is and I hope it always stays that way! Love you all, thanks for making this reunion a success!!

10 Year Class Reunion (class of '99)

I can't believe it has been ten years since high school. Many of my friends are just like me, done with college and now have a husband and some kids. A few of them are recently married and so they don't have kids but, the majority were married and had at least 2 kids. It was really great to get to see so many people that had moved away right after high school. Some came from as far away as Washington State and Colorado. The reunion started with a dinner for the adults. It was fun to get to chat but, we left before the Karaoke started. I am not much of a karaoke fan. The next morning was a golf tournament. It was just nine holes but, with a few catches. One hole you had to golf Happy gilmore style and another you had to use your putter like a cue stick to putt. There was also a hole that was a contest for the longest mens and women's drive.
Here's Reed showing off his MAD golfing skills. You did really good...I should take some pointers from you!!
I couldn't believe it but, on the longest drive, I won the Women's prize. I haven't golfed in over 5 years. Reed says I'm a natural but, I think he says that to get some brownie points. The prize was a gift card and a bucket of candy and popcorn for a movie night. Fun prize! I still can't believe I won the longest drive. Hah, maybe I have a new career coming. LOL
Here's me putting with my cue stick. Neadless to say, I didn't make it on the first try. It's really harder than it looks!
At the family picnic, they had facepainting for the kids. Abbie wanted a rainbow and Kaden wanted a BLUE star. Isaac wanted nothing to do with it and spent most of the time at the park playing on the equipment. Abbie showing me how high she got on the octagon shaped dome. What is that thing really called anyway? Isaac and Abbie with their new friend (son of a friend of mine) climbing the ropes.
Kaden and his BLUE star. He was really excited to have his face painted. Who knew? I would have guessed Isaac would want his face painted and Kaden not but, I was wrong. I guess they will always keep me on my toes. Once you think you have them figured out, they will change just to mess you up. LOL
Isaac showing me how he could climb up high and then have "NO HANDS!". That is funny because I remember doing the exact thing to my mom. Look mom, no hands...then some unfun things happen. But, that story is for another time.
I am really glad that Reed and the kids came with me to my reunion. It was great to catch up with people and see how everyone has changed or NOT changed at all. Thanks to all those that stepped up to the plate to put on a great reunion. Good job!!
