Family Reunion

I took it upon myself to be in charge of planning our Staker family reunion this year. We had originally planned on going over to Boise for a weekend, but one of my nephews is a very dedicated baseball player and the couple of weekends that he didn't have anything other people in the family were busy and it just wasn't coming together. Anyway, I was talking to my sister-in-law and we decided it would be fun to camp out in Allan's parent's back yard and do some stuff closer to home this year. I was all for it because it saved money and was lots of fun!
We started out Friday night with a bar-b-que and fireworks.
My kids thought that was great because we missed out on the 4th of July festivities because we were driving home from Arizona.
My kids love spending time with their cousins!
Amber is always a big help with Brayden!
After the fireworks we roasted S'Mores and camped out in the trailers.
The next day we went to Ross Park. It was so much fun I forgot to take pictures, but here is a view of the kiddie area with the lazy river and water slide in the background.
I love spending time with Allan's family, we are lucky to have so many of them close by! You can imagine it's a little different than coming from being an only child (Allan is youngest of 6). I love that we get the best of both worlds.

How do you find time to plan a reunion amidst all of the other things you have done this summer? You are amazing!!! Looks like a wonderful time and I am sure everyone appreciates all you do for the family!
