Yay for Family Reunions!

Family reunions have a bad rap....well they do with me.  Normally there's a lot of groaning when I think about a cheesy family reunion but ours are never like that....thank goodness.  The week was low key, me and my brothers and their families just hanging out.  It's been two and a half years since I'd seen Jason and his girls so that alone made the trip for me.  Unfortunately, Brandon couldn't make the trip with us which was super sad, but we filled him in via our nightly phone calls.  There was a LOT of relaxing, watching the kids play, laughing, a treasure hunt, crafty time, a mountain excursion, an evening hiking experience, a little shopping, and late night talks with snacks.  The trip wouldn't have been complete without a famous quote from my niece Morgan. While on our hike she yelled, "Hey,  I just saw something,.... it was either a rabbit or a jack ass!"  After we laughed our guts out, we figured that she was referring to a "pot gut".  She also called them "jack pots".  I guess that's where "jack ass" came from. So cute!

I stole all of those pictures, cause they were all good, especially Taya laying the chomp down on that poor helpless doughnut. I miss you guys again already.
