Family Reunion

All of Mark's family gathered in their hometown of Shelley, Idaho for a reunion this past weekend. The occasion? Grandpa's 79th Birthday:
Highlights included visiting the zoo and the Titanic Exhibit, eating out with just the adults, Steven and Kathy's annual Fourth of July party (with swimming and bouncy houses), watching a great DVD of family pictures, seeing Idaho Falls' amazing fireworks, going to church together and celebrating the big birthday.
We finally got some family pictures taken for the first time in 14 years! Here are 20 of the 23 (living) grandchildren.
Of course the best times are just spent visiting with family. Mark loves to be with his siblings and they all have a great time reminiscing and teasing each other.

We love to see the cousins having fun and getting to know each other better.

Such a fun weekend full of memories. I'm so glad that we finally live closer to Mark's family so we can get together more often.
