Family Reunion

Last week we had a "Smith" family reunion in Paragonah, UT. If Mike and I look a little tired in this picture, it's because we WERE!! Bella was up EVERY hour the night before (at the reunion) - other then that the reunion was a SUCCESS!
Thank goodness our family has FUN toys - we enjoyed getting away and going on "family 4-wheeling" rides! Even Bella! Bri likes to go with her Papa and Bo likes to drive! We are hoping that a 4-wheeler will be our next purchase?!

This is the FUN cabin we stayed at - it sleeps about 70 people. It was a PERFECT place for a reunion - horses, trails, dutch ovens...
Look at this view - it was refreshing! Great weather - just a little chilly at night (sweat shirt weather)!!

The bubble maker was the highlight for Bells!!
Bri also got in the bubble fun!! I couldn't get a picture, but this wand made HUGE bubbles! (Notice Bri is wearing a white skirt - this is her idea of "camping attire" - she never even wore her reunion shirt.) I love this girl!!
Mike and I were in charge of the games - this is a $money$ find! LOTS of change in saw dust - a kids HEAVEN!
Karaoke was a BIG hit - this is my dad and his two cousins - Mitch and Vance. They were singing "Elvira." Karaoke is something that literally scares the life out of me - I LOVE to dance, play games - whatever - but sing by myself into a microphone - NO THANKS!!
