Family Reunion 2013

We went to Utah for Christmas to be with my parents and siblings and niece. With Jace and Lyndon and their families moving out of state for PhD programs, Nate going on an LDS mission in Bulgaria, and me and Isaiah moving to California, we haven't all been together for a few years. We have cousins who live in a beautiful house mansion in Alpine. While they vacationed in Vegas they loaned us their sweet digs which comfortably housed all 12 of us for our mini-reunion. There was a little bit of basketball, wallyball, eating out, Just Dance, bowl games, junk food, babies, family pictures, sharing germs, board games, card games, name it. One highlight involved a family meeting where we all found out what my dad actually does for "work". Here's some other highlights:
Evan and Uncle Lyndon, male-bonding over cars

Nate (21), Austin (18)
(At first I put "Nate (19)"...then I had to think about that for a while. They grow up so quickly!)
"Touchdown, Evan!" Photo compliments to @austinavongarrett
Evan must've blinked. He was not sleeping.
Out to eat at Chili's
Bulgaria souvenirs! 
Evan and cousin Aisley                            
On the way there we split the trip in two and stayed in a hotel in...somewhere. (I don't remember at the moment.) On the way home we drove all the way straight. By Reno, Evan was DONE. We took a break at Subway and walked through Scheels, thinking it would let out some energy and give us all a boost for the rest of the drive. Nope. Evan was pretty upset the remaining 3 hours. It was a nice stop anyway.

This picture would've been a lot cuter if Evan would've cooperated and sat in the jeep by himself.


  1. I am so glad all of your were able to get together and have that wonderful time together. Love the pictures.

  2. So fun to see you all! You all look so great!
