Reunion Time!

Friday morning we played around here for awhile.  Brian came and brought Maden after he dropped Celia off at work.
Cindy got to feed Maden his breakfast, he made her laugh every time he said "mmmmmm"
Syd was a good little babysitter and took Maden for a stroller ride in the driveway.

We went to lunch at Rupes, then loaded up and headed for Island Park for a Chambers Family Reunion. 
This is one of the two houses that were rented for the reunion.

We played in the water.
We ate good food.
We saw a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles
Don't I make a "great" Aunt, at least to Colton?

We played minute to win it games.
Some of us went to Big Springs and fed the fish.
While they were there, they saw some moose!
Blake, Cindy, Ken, Syd, Brian, Celia, Maden, Randy and Courtney left Sunday morning and drove through Yellowstone.
Isn't this just the cutest picture!  If you look closely, you can see the Tetons in the background.

It was a fun filled, fast weekend!  There was one major downfall to the reunion.  About 19 of the 43 of us got some kind of nasty flu bug.  It kind of put a damper on the fun times, but at least we had some great times before the bug came!  I loved having my whole family together! 

Cindy's family came!

Cindy, Ken and Sydney flew into Idaho Falls on Thursday last week.  Cindy reqested cotton candy shaved ice for a treat when they got off the plane.  Jared and I went and got some for them, they were a little melted, but Cindy was thrilled!
I think maybe she was more excited to see the Shaved Ice than she was to see us!

Her next request was to go to Wingers.  We met Brian, Celia and Maden there.  Maden is a little bigger than he was when Cindy saw him last!
Brian gave Cindy this card and Maden loved it, he played and played with it.
Here's proof that Ken and Syd made it too!

After Wingers, we met Brandi Miles Simmons at Freeman Park.  She took some family pictures for us! Thanks so much Brandi!  Here's a few shots that we took with our cameras.
My four silly kids!
