This picture is for our wonderful friends, the Fillmores. They lived right by here and this was their ward building for a couple (?) of years. We thought of them. :)
So I'm not totally sure how to blog about the family reunion. I think I'll do it day-by-day.
We got to the place on Monday, late afternoon. "The place" was called the Wildernest area - hundreds and hundreds of condos up the moutainside, right near the town of Silverthorne, CO. It was a beautiful, mountain get-away for sure. Each family (Ben's 3 siblings and his parents) had their own condo - with Ben's parents rooming up with Ben's sister, Debbie.
Monday nite's activity - dinner - was held at the LDS ward building in Frisco. There was a lot of playing, eating, visiting, birthday singing to everyone, etc. It was a good nite and a good time to get familiar with everyone again. We did a pinata, too. In the dark, outside. The pinata was a monkey. It looked a little. . . strange. . . seeing a monkey hanging from some rope outside the LDS meeting house. Awesome.
(Oh bummer, I thought I could take some pictures from my niece's facebook and save it and post it here. But I can't. Boohoo. Someday maybe I'll get some more pictures - if so, I'll update these posts with better/more pictures. So no pictures for this day.)
P.S. Uh, nevermind. I do have some pictures:
Each nite 4-5 grandchildren were "spotlighted." The grandchild showed, did, or talked about themselves, their hobbies, etc. Monday nite included Lucy as a spotlight. She entertained us all by clapping, waving and such. Adorable.
