Memorial Day Weekend Recap

We normally go to Yellowstone with my family for Memorial Day Weekend, but this year it was just too cold and snowy/rainy. So we opted to postpone the trip for a few weeks.
The kids were a little bummed about not getting to go camping, so we went to Grammy and Grampy's and roasted hot dogs in the tee pee. Doing that, plus having a sleep over made the weekend all right. (And don't mind my gray faced son, it was field day and got his face painted. He refused to wash it off until his daddy could see it.)

I think Kate got a hold of the camera for this shot of Grampy.

So annoying, this picture won't turn no matter what I do. But, Carter fell asleep by the warmth of the fire. He was quite comfy.

Then Monday we drove to Malad for a family reunion with Jarom's mom's side of the family. We hardly ever get to go to this because we are always camping, so it was a nice change and fun to see family we haven't seen in years. (Here Kate is visiting Uncle Ralph's grave.)

Alyssa, McCall, and Olivia ran the penny candy station. These girls used to be the best of friends years ago. It was fun to see how quickly they reconnected.
The kids all had to find "a rich uncle" (since Uncle Ralph is no longer with us) to give them a quarter. Then they got to shop at the candy store. This was a hit.

We played a rousing game of t-ball.

And even some horseshoes. Nice form Honey!

Becky and Maddy were the t-ball cheerleaders.

Halle is bound and determined to make Maddy her buddy. Maddy is bound and determined NOT to be Halle's buddy.

We finished the day with a few spins on the merry-go-round. Who knew the laughs falling off a merry-go-round could provide?

I live about 1/2 a block from the park where you were playing t-ball. Glad you enjoyed the small town life for a minute! Your kids just keep getting cuter and I'll have to add BIG. I haven't even met half of the children. Cute, Cute!
