Ashton...Part 2

Our day started at a bowling alley in Idaho Falls, ID. Everyone got their bowling shoes tied and we were rolling!
Glenn is our resident "nerd" or computer tech to say it nicely. He got us all set up to bowl.

Grandpa taking his turn.

Jake.....I think I may of had a better score if I had used bumpers...hmmm

Alana...she decided not to bowl since bending was not easy for her....she is due any day now!

Lola My girls took my camera and took pictures of, what else? the girls.

That evening we had a Family Olympics. Nelson and Wynn are diving into whip cream to find and eat gummie bears

Waiting around to see what's next.

Getting ready for the Root Beer chug. Yep..Brad won.

I thing Glenn came in second.

Part of our Relay race. Maddy had to put a hat and life jacket on before running and tagging the next person.

Annie is finished her part!

We sat around the fire and listened to a story from Grandpa. He told us about our ancestors who settled right around Henry's Fork on the snake river. Great story!

Waiting for smores!

The river

Time for Smores!

My Brother in law, Jarrett had a lighted Frisbee that we played with for awhile. Then Brad brought some glow sticks.

Someone would take all the glow sticks and start running. Then everyone else chases them until the person holding the glow sticks throws them as high in the air as they can. Sounds simple, but the kids loved it, especially playing the game with the two Uncle Brads.

Our last day. We of course took family pictures. I had a whole disk with pictures of all the families and pictures of the group of us, but I left it in Idaho. Oops!

All the girl cousins

Brad was trying to encourage Luke to put on his pj's

It was Harrison's 1st birthday so we helped him celebrate with cake of course!

Landon and Luke hugging good-bye.

It really was a great reunion. I wish I saw everyone way more than every two years, but I am so thankful that we do stay in touch and that the cousins all love each other so much and get along so well. Thanks Tim for planning such a great reunion. We are excited about the next one Rebecca!
