Rejoicing in Being Green!

This past July we travelled with grandchildren in tow to Utah for the bi-annual Green’s family reunion.  Here is a recap of our first day of re-uniting.

The view as we start our day - this is from my brother-in-laws back yard.

I decided I needed a better photo so I ventured out to the street (probably still in my pajamas)

Prior to heading to Oakley to visit with Corey’s family we stopped by Grandma Pat’s house.  We are so glad some of the Chatwin cousins could stop by to visit too!

While Corey’s dad is no longer with us his spirit lives on through his children and their children and grandchildren!

Aunt Iris is also no longer with us – but her family is strong and so enjoyable to be with.

Aunt Carol’s family travels from Idaho to join in the festivities and they are a FUN bunch!

Here are a few random photos of the generations as we celebrate being family!

My niece, Chandler was in charge of activities for the first evening – she had gathered all of the items necessary for some really fun family games.  Both of my grandchildren agreed this was one of their favorite parts of the trip!

And the games begin - Kaylene was really getting into it!

This game was geared to the adults due to difficulty.  Did not deter Mr. B!

We plan our family reunion around the 24th of July, which is a BIG holiday in Utah.  It is Pioneer Day and there are parades, carnivals and rodeos as well as TON’s of fireworks!  I must say that there are actually too many fireworks, they go on well past midnight in many neighborhoods!

And our night ends

Little Toot made sure I took some good photos of the perfect ending to a perfect day!
