Over Father's Day weekend we headed to Midway for the Belnap Family Reunion. We had a great time! We played lots of fun games around the camp grounds, ate yummy food, and it was wonderful to see my favorite cousins and their kids. It was so great to chat with them, and I am sad we didn't get any pictures with them! We also got to ride 4 wheelers and go to Jordanelle and tube on Stacy's boat. We had a great time, did lots of fun things, but the best part really was just seeing and visiting with family! It was especially great to listen to my Grandma and Grandpa talk and see the joy they have in their posterity! Here are some highlights from the reunion:
Right after we got there and were setting up, I lost track of Jack. Turns out that he was getting a 4 wheeler ride from his great-uncle Robert.
Jack and Daddy going for a ride. I really think Dustin wants to get a 4 wheeler one day! He loves them, and so did Jack!
Jack and mommy taking a 4 wheeler ride! (Still looking okay...this was Day 1!!)Here is Jack getting ready for bed the first night. This is how we camped....sleeping in a tent but living out of the back of our Highlander.
Here was the sleeping conditions in Lisa's tent. She slept on one side with her mattress, Jack in the middle, and Dustin and I on our mattress on the other side. Jack was not digging the cold nights in the pack n play by himself. He ended up snuggling with us in our sleeping bag each night!
Friday morning they had lots of fun games and things to do. I am sad I missed Dustin doing a sack race...apparently he ate it. Wish I would have caught that on film.
Here is Jack playing with the T-ball stand. He sure loves hitting balls with bats.
Friday during the day we went boating at Jordanelle. Here is Lisa all ready and excited to go even though preggers didn't get to tube....
Here is Jackie Bean and mommy on the boat!
Jack hanging out on the boat!
Ryan, Aubrey, and Drew on the boat. Drew was one brave kid. I went on a pretty fast, bumpy fun ride with him and Braden!
Jack being the flag boy on the boat!
Here's our little family all ready to go tubing behind the boat! It was so much fun!
I love this picture. Click on it and make it bigger so you can see Jack's face. It is pure joy! He had so much fun!Mamacita and Leathal on the banks!
The area at Jordanelle that we went to also had a little playground. Jack had fun playing in water puddles, going down the slide,
and throwing rocks around. I sat and watched him play for too long and got my legs FRIED!
The place where we camped had a building that had a kitchen, a big open area, and bathrooms. So we decided to give Jack a bath in the kitchen sing. He seemed to enjoy it, and I was jealous!After the above picture was taken Friday night, we lost our camera. We could not find it all day Saturday so we missed out on some fun times playing games, kids dressing up, and getting to see my great friend, Tana!
This picture was taken after the joyous moment when I found our camera Sunday morning!
Here are a bunch of the great-grandkids singing, "I'm so glad when Daddy comes home." Jack isn't singing, but we let him go up with the other kids. He just kind of clapped and danced.
Grandma and Grandpa Belnap. They are truly amazing people. Both of them got up on Father's Day morning and spoke to the family. It was wonderful to listen to them and their sweet words they had to share with us.
Yeah yeah, I know I look rough, I was on my third day without a shower, but I LOVE this picture. These two are the reason we all gathered. They are AMAZING!
While we were getting ready to go, we couldn't find Jack. This is where we found him: Hanging out with Mylee in their mini van.
Here is Jack enjoying eating Cheetos on the drive home. This is the before shot....
And this is the after. Jack had so much fun all week and was so tuckered out that he fell asleep with his hand in the Cheetos bag. The funny thing is like an hour later he wakes himself up by crinkling the bag, gets all wide eyed, then continues where he left off eating Cheetos!
We had a great time at the Belnap Reunion! We are so blessed to have such amazing families and a wonderful heritage!
