Idaho YAY...2009!!

A little re-cap of my family reunion in Idaho. Because of problems I was having getting my pics on my computer, it has taken a while. Wow, the reunion was almost a month ago!
Our family was the first one to arrive. We drove the seven hours to the turn-off, and drove the next hour over bumpy, dusty roads to our favorite campground just to find this....
We eventually found another place to camp, and then had to drive an hour back to cell phone service to contact the rest of the family. After a crazy LONG day of relocating camp, and finding a place where there was an outhouse, we settled in for a fun week.
Ashie and Hunter Dan
Jibbity
Lexlee

Bug
Lexlee, and cousin Alicia won the candy guessing jar.
Jibbity, cousin Jenny, and Lexlee decorating their bags to hold all their "doll Stuff"
Bug, Jibbity, and cousin Cody
Painting rocks...my brother Darrin loves Sponge Bob, along with most of the camp there!! He is talented don't ya think!?!

Lexlee's cookie rock.
Couple years apart for these two, but they are"brothers from another mother"...so they say!

Jibbity, and cousin Ben's bike which she named "Rosie", and rode everywhere, even to the short walk to the outhouse.
Lexlee and Ashie inside the tent! Jibbity performing some song she made up!
Hunter Dan and Jibbity and our glow sticks that we had around the campfire at night. Ashie's favorite place to be, standing on the bench of the picnic table..."grazing"
Jibbity in the creek

Bug jumping off the "man test" area of the creek.

My Mom...she is crazy fun, and later on started a massive water fight!
My cutie niece and her fish...can't remember his name, but she did name it.

Grandma gave buckets, and shovels to the kids...did Ashie get dirty?
Yes...she did!!!!

This helped though!
On the four-wheeler with daddy.

Grandma and Lexlee created this.

We had sooo much fun, and look forward to next year. I LOVE spending time with my family!!! I miss you all! I have about a million more pics of all my family, but I'll save those for another time!:-)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

What a great time with your family! Your pictures are fantastic (although I'm not really crazy about that fish...). Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

Oh it looks like you all had so much fun.
I saw the pics with the glow sticks & I have to tell you my huge family (Aunts, Cousins etc) all do a family camp out reunion every year also & we started a tradition a few years ago.
We got a bunch of glow sticks & stuffed them inside wiffle balls & we play night time glow in the dark baseball. Oh & we all wear a bunch of glow sticks to so we know where everyone is.
The kids love it & have so much fun.
Just an idea if your interested.
