This year, we kept things pretty simple. Using Adam and Jennie's home as our home base, we planned fun, local activities and had a great time together. We made these awesome t-shirts with a logo on the front and word cloud on the back, with the names of all the family members. Each person colored in their name with a permanent marker and it was a fun way to personalize the shirts. We put a lot of planning into this, and I felt awesome seeing all the family wearing these shirts.
On Friday, Aunt Maggie brought over her horses, so the kids could go horseback riding in the empty lot next to Jennie's house. So cool!
Then, we did a nice and short hike up Payson Canyon (to the Grotto), and splashed in the water.
That night, we put on a family talent show. The oldest cousins recreated a Studio C skit, Nathan played the piano, Grandpa, Jonathan, and Catherine played their string instruments while Annelise sang...
Can you see Rachel gloating?
Next time, I think we would like to have a more structured beginning and end (we were supposed to do a family history thing on Sunday, but people left early so our plan sort of fizzled). We had such a fun time with this simple plan that I think we will definitely do something like this again!
