Summers are for family reunions. We had a big one with Brandon's side of the family in Payson, Utah.
We got a professional family portrait in our matching tees.
The theme: KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
We had a few devotionals, hymns, and stories around the campfire to reiterate it.
The cool kids
Highlights for the kids: giant blow-up waterslide, building a fort in the mountains, water games, and wildflower crafts.
Highlight for me was just being in the beautiful mountains and the campfire singing. New pretty scenery just takes the fun up a notch.
Everyone agreed that the low was sleeping because, in our tent, we didn't get any! Who needs sleep any way though. There was fun to be had.
Other activities were gunny sack races, photo scavenger hunt, nature crafts, and ultimate frisbee in the dark, and hiking BlackHawk trail.
The reunion ended with Grandma's birthday and a cake to savor the celebration.
We are very fortunate that we can call this great bunch of people, FAMILY.
