WEPR - Day 1 - Gathering for Family Reunion
Jacee, Jackson, and Maddie do more work in preparing for the reunion.
David and Julie B with three of their four: Anna, Sam, and William--family are the first to arrive on Friday.
The trampoline is a favorite place for the grandkids.

Then Gary arrives with Isaac; Steve & Natalie with Kimble and Carter, and Janie with Michael.
The traditional gathering supper of stew and scones is enjoyed by all.  After which, the birthday girl blows out her birthday candles.  We just wrote "39 again..." on her cake. 
Julie and John give some instructions for the "Survivor" theme.
William, 7, examine the sliver that his doctor dad just pulled out of his finger.
A fun game of Family Feud started the festivities.
At sundown a fire pit is started to end the day with S'mores.
I didn't get a photo of Friday night's fire pit, so am using one of Saturday night's.

WEPR - Day 2 - Full day of Family Reunion
We had 25 of the 59 who were able to come.
Just gonna post the family photo, then add the rest of the photos of the activities later.
Trying to brighten family photo with auto correct in photo file.
trying again

Janie and Michael had a fun promptu jitter-bug in the kitchen before Janie left for home -- Rexburg, Idaho about 9:00.
Jordan and Heidi will bring Michael home tomorrow.
Julie and John and family did a great job with the "Survivor" Family Reunion for this year! 
June 26, 2016 - Sunday
Today most of the families left for their homes--in Utah.

By 10:20, everyone except Jordan, Heidi, and Michael were on their way home.
The cousins love being together. It's hard to say "Goodbye."
Here's Anna and Jacee at the time of departure...
Anna is 15, Jacee is 13.

We went from 8 vehicles parked in the driveway and in front of our home to just 2 again.
After Sacrament Meeting Jordan and Heidi were headed to our home to have some lunch, then they were heading to Rexburg. They are both students at BYU-Idaho and have been dating for a couple of months.  Heidi is 19. Jordan is from one of the towns near Rexburg, did his mission in the Philippines, and is majoring in Auto Design Mechanics.  Heidi is majoring in (didn't hear what she said) and with all of her ballroom dance credits may minor in that.

Note: I did end up using more than one per day. But there are several more to add....but I'm calling it a day for now.

We appreciate and love all of our family.  We so enjoyed being with those who could come and missed those who could not.
Because of the Restored Priesthood Ordinances - 
when they are sealed in the Temple of the Lord.
