Family Reunion


The original five siblings
Barbecue outside

All of the grandchildren in order by height--20 total.
I just got back from a week long family reunion. We get together every year with my family for a week. This year it was in Boulder, CO where we were all raised. My parents hosted it and it as usual was a ton of fun. We went to all of our old family haunts and added a few new ones--Brainard Lake, Huckelberry's for breakfast (what used to be Karen's Country Kitchen), Miniature Golfing at Adventure Land with the volcano that erupts every 7 minutes, a photo scavanger hunt on the CU campus and Pearl Street Mall, a talent night and this year as a special treat, all of the endowed members attended a sealing session at the Denver temple where my father performed the sealings. It was wonderful. Posted are a few pictures from the event.

Sounds like a great time. I can't wait for mine. These are so much fun when you have family that live away and you don't get to see them nearly as much as you would like. :)

Glad you've had fun. We've missed you back home.

How fun Janice! I'm a little jealous I have to say even though I was just there.

Love the cousin photo!

Yes Gabriela. It is Chief Niwot's curse. I LOVE my life here in Utah but am always homesick for Boulder. By the way, Chief Niwot said, "Once you see Boulder, you may leave but always want to find yourself back here." or something like that.
