Family Reunion at Bear Lake

While we were in Utah we also got to take a quick trip down to St. George. It was Carter's first time and of course it was the hottest week of the year! :) We flew into Cedar from Salt Lake because the tickets were super cheap. Rory's parents met us at the airport and then we met Hunter and Heather at Rusty's Ranch House for my second birthday dinner!

After dinner we went to Hunter and Heather's to eat the cake Polly made! Thanks Polly!

Later in the week we had a reunion with Rory's family in Bear Lake. It was a blast! Rory's Aunt and all her kids and their families were also with us so we had quite the group. There were 16 adults and 11 little kiddies all under the age of 8! We were all staying in one large cabin.

The night we got there we went to Pickleville Playhouse for dinner and a show. The dinner was great, even if Carter wasn't very happy. :)

After dinner Polly and Mike were great enough to watch Carter and Boston and Capri while the rest of us went to the show. We watched The Hanging of El Bandito. It was my first time watching a melodrama and we loved it. Rory even wanted to go back and watch it again. :) It was HILARIOUS! We could tell a lot of it was improvised and it would have been a lot of fun to watch it again and see how it differed. I even got a pickle during intermission. I love pickles so how could I not get one when I went to the Pickleville Playhouse? :)

The next day we went to the lake.

Carter's first time in water! We just put his toes in and he loved it, even though you can't tell from this picture. :)

Carter is so cute in the little life jacket. :) He has no neck so the jacket is up in his face.

If you look really close you can barely see the top of Carter's head and part of his body. :) We just putted around for a couple minutes so Carter could have his first ride on a wave runner.

Chilling in the beach chair while Mom and Dad were on the wave runner.

Naughty Grandma!

Carter loved the licorice.....

We forgot Carter's hat, so he borrowed Dad's for a bit.

Sorry about the picture overload, but there's still more! :) We spent lots of time playing at the cabin so here are some pictures of our fun!

Rory and I beat Hunter and Heather at table tennis.

And they beat us at pool. :)

Annika loved playing with Carter and he loved the attention! :)

Saturday we got a little game of wiffle ball going. In the beginning there were only a few of us, but by the end I think everyone was outside either playing or watching!

The guys had to bat left handed.

We spent a lot of time cheering on the little ones. :)

Carter had fun on the sidelines.

You always have to get pics of the grandkids!

We had such a fun time with everyone! Sharing a cabin with that many people can be crazy, but it was definitely a blast! I hope it's not too long until we can do it again. We were sad it had to come to an end, but we definitely needed to recover from our vacation when we got home! :)
