Family Reunion

The boys and Richard went down to Fairview early on Saturday morning to help Grandpa McAllister with a fence project at the lambing shed. They were good workers and had a good time. They had to hurry back to make it to the Stevens Family Reunion for the rest of the day. Our kids had so much fun playing with all the cousins there and it was great to visit with everybody. They are all wonderful families. Richards Aunt Portia and Uncle Jerry are leaving to be mission presidents in Nigeria, Africa (this will be their third mission) and Aunt Beverly and Uncle Doug are headed to Perth, Australia(their 2nd mission). We probably wont have another reunion until they get back, but it was a fun day and we all had a great time.

Daniel was very proud of this lovely sheep bone he found. I wasn't too happy to find it in my bed last night. Its now displayed on his bookcase.
The boys and grandpa with cousins Caden and McKenna helping put in fence posts. Richard said they worked really hard!
They were happy to be spending the morning helping Grandpa and getting dirty.

This is how it all began- The three sisters and their husbands. Portia and Jerry Boggess, Beverly and Doug Jensen and Joan and Jack McAllister.
This is the whole clan that was there yesterday- WOW! The kids behaved better for this picture than the adults. We are actually missing three families (17 more people) that live out of state.
The kids spent some time coloring in coloring books that Joan and I put together that told facts and stories about the kids great-grandparents, Arnold and Claris Stevens.
This was really a fun way to learn about them and the kids all really enjoyed it!

Ooops! This picture got stuck here at the bottom. The boys loved the power of sitting in the Cat.
