Family Reunion #2

Family Reunion #2 is the Cottle Reunion!
(This is a longer recap for my siblings who weren't able to be there!
I missed them terribly!)
I went to high school, college, and the mid-west with 
some of these cousins and I just love them to pieces!
Here we are on a wagon ride!
Here are Tyann and Lacey with Grandpa Cottle!
 Then our favorite past time, SINGING TOGETHER!

 The next day we went on a huge slip and slide!
The girls and I loved it!
Where was Kody, you ask?
We couldn't pull him away from the fishing with 
some of the big boys!
Yes, that is me going down head first!
I'm such a little dare devil!  ha ha! :)
 Here Josie and I are going down together!
 Here's the audience!
 We enjoyed canoeing, fishing, slip& sliding, visiting,
laughing, eating, 4 wheelers, singing, and so much more!
 Here are the girls making bracelets.
The boys got to make ropes,
which Kody loved doing with grandpa.
 My brothers and sisters couldn't come this reunion
so here we are doing our talent.  We sang
"If I listen with my Heart!"
 Here is my Anut Lynne and her grand daughter
doing a Hawaiian dance.
 And Uncle Lyly sharing the good news of their
mission call to Hawaii!  He is going to teach at
BYU-Hawaii! Lucky! :)
 My kids could NOT get enough of my 
cousins kids.  They were so fun!
Rochelle, me, Lisa, and Melida
 Here are the kids singing a few Fathers Day songs on Sunday!
 Jayson, Alan, Mike, Darrell, Kevin, and Trent
 And we LOVED being with my dad on Fathers day!
We LOVE you dad/grandpa!

Between the reunions!

After the Anderson Reunion, we went to the Cressall's
for a couple of days and boy did we have fun!
Here are the girls ready for bed!
 Here are the boys too!
 Here is Holly's fun make over!
 We styled it wavy the first day
 and the next day we did it straight!
 We took the kids for icee's,
 and we got fabulous pedicures!
 Thanks Cressall Family for the fun time!

Next we went to Elsinore, UT to visit my Grandpa!

 It was Tyann's 6th birthday so we had some fun!
We went to a rock shop and had a tour!
We went to the Ideal Dairy to have a yummy
birthday treat!

 AND we got to help Grandpa feed the lambs!
 Kody also wanted Grandpa to pull another one of
his teeth, so Grandpa pulled out the old PLIERS!
YIKES!  It was tough, but we eventually got it!
 We also enjoyed visiting with Grandpa and hearing
his stories, playing the piano for him, and sitting on
his porch swing in the evenings!
