Family Reunion

We just had our family reunion in Idaho. Mom and Dad, their kids and grandkids. We have been anticipating it for months now, and we are finally on the road! Watch out, Idaho, here we come!
The weather was gorgeous. This is fishing at Meyer's Creek. Nathan was the go to man with the bait. He baited hooks and repaired poles and helped kids all afternoon! You are wonderful, honey!

This is what Jacob caught, and what he caught it with! He made this willow pole and used it to successfully land two fish! Leslie also caught her first fish on this trip. Mom wasn't there to take the picture, but we are happy for you, sis!

This is how we spent the time while not drowning worms. The rubber rafts are one of our favorite traditions. We have them tied to ropes able to pull them back to shore.

These are my parents grandchildren. Jacob is the oldest. There are 24 of them and the next one expected in August! My kids just love to run and play with their cousins. We feel so blessed to be part of this family! Thanks for the reunion!
