Vacation 2011

On Saturday, July 9th, I started my vacation. I drove to Caliente where my Grandma and Grandpa Petersen, as well as Brenda and her boys were already staying. I had a good time visiting with them as well as Melissa and her kids (Cory was still working out of town). On Monday, we drove to Cedar and had lunch with Marie, Joe and kids. From there, we went up to Pinewood Resort for our Petersen Family Reunion (see previous post). After the reunion ended on Thursday, I stayed with Marie and Joe's family until Saturday, when I went to St. George to see the Wiscombe's. I left there on Sunday morning and had the privilege of bringing Parker and Chandler on the drive home with me. It made a long drive a little easier. It was a great vacation and a wonderful time was had by all!!!

Petersen Family Reunion 2011

This year we had a Petersen Family Reunion. My Maternal Grandparents have 12 children, 80+ grandchildren and 60+ great grandchildren! Needless to say, we have a good amount of people when we have a reunion. I had a GREAT time and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. Here are some pictures that were taken. I hope you enjoy them!!!

Spending some quality time with my nieces and nephews!

Playing "Go Fish"

The kids thought the sand volleyball court was the best and biggest sandbox EVER.

One day we took a hike to Cascade Falls. Here are some photos from that trip.
Bauer LOVED riding in his carier!
