Dustin’s family has a reunion around the 4th of July every year. I wasn’t sure if I’d make it this year, I was waiting to see how my recovery after the baby went. And it went really well, so off to his hometown we went. The drive wasn’t bad. I had envisioned a 5 hour drive with a screaming newborn in the back seat. But he slept the whole way. Yay!
The reunion was great. It was in my in-laws backyard, which has a large pond, waterfall, massive swings and more. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins, and running wild all day long. Prepare for picture overload…(I say that a lot. I guess it’s always picture overload on this blog.)
Tracker Jacker was a riot, he just has so much personality I’m sure he’ll explode one of these days. He was T-Rex most of the weekend, or Grandpa Jack (he sticks his belly out to make him in to a Grandpa).
We had a ping pong ball race down the waterfall. First we all decorated a ball, then dropped them at the top of the waterfall and waited for them to work their way down.
My oldest was desperately looking for hers, and she was sure she would win. We had dutch-oven cooking for dinner, and it was fabulous like always.
I love the swings at my in-laws house, they are 50 ft. tall and the swings fly at a super wide arc. They are awesome.
We had an awesome sunset with pink clouds. I was glad I had my camera!
