Our Family Reunion - Part I

I'm back!!!

It has been a crazy last few weeks. We moved into our house the first week, and have been unpacking non-stop for over a week. Then, once the unpacking was mostly done, we had a family reunion at our house for the following week.  Now everyone is gone and the dust is settling here in Reno. 

I will put some pictures up of the reunion over the next couple of days.


Tru, Harry, Brielle, and Julia on our swing in the backyard.

Tru played so much and we stayed up so late, it took a couple of days, and then he crashed on the couch. He didn't move for about 2 hours. Not one muscle.

The grandparents arrived a day after Nordel and his family, and as soon as they walked through the door, we discovered a stowaway chipmunk in our laundry room. R.J. was assigned the task of chipmunk removal. It took him about an hour, but he got it done.

Grandma dressed and groomed Julia every day. She loved it!  Here is here Farrah Fawcett hairdo. Everyday the hair looked fabulous.

They got some bowling in. It was a lots of fun and Eli had a blast. Apparently, he also got the highest score of all the kids, 103!

We also went to Callahan Park and hung out for a bit. The weather was beautiful.

Uncle Nordel playing with the kids...how cute.

A lady at the park said it was warm enough to swim at Lake Tahoe. So, the day after the final families arrived we headed out to the lake, at Sand Harbor.  It is totally awesome. Look at that view...amazing.  The kids had a lot of fun, but the water was still freezing. In one month, it should be fantastic. I can't wait.

The water may have been cold, but the edge was fine enough for sand castle building.

Lindy sure had fun.

Grandma sat with the babies and fed them snacks.  Brielle had fun hanging out with Grandma.
After the beach, we drove to Truckee, California so that everyone could see the beautiful mountains and lake. We also went to Donner State Park and watched a movie at the visitors center.  The statue in the back of this picture commemorates the Donner Party.
