Vacay...Part 2

We had such a blast at our first Recoonion. Can I just tell you that my sister Rebecca seriously did a fabulous job! She really went all out. And we appreciate it so much! She had so much stuff for everyone to do. It really was a great time and we made wonderful memories from it!

~Some of the highlights~

My mom put $40.00 worth of change, shiny glass rocks, and shells in the creek for the kids to dig out. Man, did the kids enjoy it! They played for hours!
So did we!!


Loved this so much! I still watch it and giggle! I love that my family is so outgoing, spunky, and not afraid to make each other laugh!!

Another fav...

When I say Becca went all out...I mean she really went all out! She had activities for the kids to do non-stop. From swimming, talent show, bingo, rock painting, treasure hunts, and lots more!
(Yes, that is my son showing his awesome talent of the splits. The kid is flexible)


Bear Lake on the last day. What a blast! The kids and adults loved it! And it was such a perfect day!

Other fun things
*making up songs around the campfire
*eating delicious meals
*telling "remember when" stories

Thank you so much Rebecca! That was so much fun. I hate that I am next in line to be in charge, cause how do you compete with what you did?


Becca said...

Boogs, what are you doing up so late?

Oh no you ditn't put up that dancing video!

Thanks for all the compliments--I'm glad you're in charge next, because you're good at planning things, too. I know it's gonna be a blast.

The video is great! Oh my goodness. Will they forgive you for that???

I wouldn't want to have to follow Becca either. I can see that she did an amazing job. It really looks like you guys had a great time.

We just got from Bear Lake. It is such a great place to go as a family.
