We have been waiting all summer for the Petersen Family Reunion and it finally came! Grandma and Aunt Sarah worked so hard to make it special and the theme was "Olympics". We started the fun with a boy's outing - shooting. They got rained out and ended up in our living room playing the old Super Mario Brothers game. What fun guys, and nice to have a whole room full.
Ayvri and Audrey are best buddies - they really do play so very well together and I don't think they had a single spat the whole weekend and were inseparable (again!)
In all we had a great time! I was so glad that the Kenneys were able to stay with us and for the late night visits and silly youtube viewing. And can I say my nieces and nephews ROCK! They are the coolest people and it was so fun getting to hang out with them and know them a little better. I guess the highest compliment I can pay is that I want to parent more like his siblings because I want my kids to be like theirs!
Mostly I'm so thankful to know that Families can be together forever! I'm thankful for the covenants that we've made and that even though occasionally families are a major drama-fest, most of the time family for me is fun! It's people we share our history with and build our futures for. Yay for Family Reunion!
