I Have a Family Tree

With branches by the dozen...

Last week was our bi-annual Wight Family Reunion. Though attendance was down this year and there was a lot less planned, we still managed to have a lot of fun. The reunion started Wednesday and went until Saturday.

Of course my children found the only mud puddle for miles around. Playing with the Welling grandkids.

Xadun swinging with Drace, Michaela, and Parker.

Chaetun had to be in the middle of whatever excitement was going on. This was the volleyball game where he was close to getting hit because he was busy talking to the bystanders. lol

Chaetun, Xadun, and Drace doing pasta crafts.

Grandma helping Chaetun make his animal necklace.

Thursday is always the free day to do whatever we want. We generally go with all the Wellings up to Bear Lake to play. This year Kara, Gavin's wife, and her brothers brought up their boat. The little kids got the first rides. Chaetun has ridden on the tube before (as was seen in Montana) but never by himself. I let him do it as long as I was in the boat. He did great!!

Michaela, Chaetun, and Newell

Hold on tight!!

This is just after everyone else fell off. Brady was driving the boat and cut the engine to knock one of the other boys off. He forgot that by cutting the engine, the front of the tubes go under water knocking the kids off. But not Chaetun. He was holding on so tight that his head went under with the tube until it popped back up. He was a little shaken by it and wanted to get off for a little bit.

It wasn't long until he was ready to get back on. :)

One of the family traditions that had gone away for awhile was revived this year thanks to Ryan Welling. Ryan did a great job with the Family Follies, we had a lot of fun. I only have pictures of a couple of the 6 events, but it was a lot of fun.

I don't know the name of the first event, but we had five people blindfolded who pulled one person who had to direct us down and around a garbage can.

I couldn't keep up

Chris' team had a collision with the yellow team. It was pretty funny!!

My gangster Chaetun and Lucas

The water sponge game

The last event was eating cheese puffs. Luckily I got to sit out of this one.

Gavin was the first to finish his 35 cheese puffs.

The pink team won and received their golden wood medals. My red team came in second and Chris' green team came in last. lol

Jaxon fell asleep in the cubbies along the wall. Ryan and Tiffanie looked him for quite awhile before finding him here. haha

So glad you posted pictures of this. Being so far away it feels like I miss everything, well...I do! It's nice to be able to see it in pictures!
