our family and her husbands family for the event. We arrived on Friday evening and due to the number of people expected, we stayed in a hotel nearby. Todd's mother, Barb, arrived Friday evening also with her sister, Elly. Todd's son, Mason, and his cousin, Tristen, was there too. We took Brooklyne with us to the hotel on Friday night. Of course, we enjoyed the hotel breakfast in the morning. Once we got ourselves dressed and fed, we went back to Sommer's. Everyone started to arrive Saturday after noon. Our daughter, Heather, and her husband, Paul, arrived with our newest grandson, Aiden. Aiden has really grown and is constantly on the move.
Todd's father arrived with his sister, Tracy, brother in law, Jimmy and their 3 children. Everyone was having a great time with lots of food. We got out the Corn hole game and everyone started to pair up for a tournament. I played with my son in law, Paul, and we made it through 2 rounds before losing. Todd's cousin, Jeff, was on fire all day and he and Todd pretty much took it all. Ryleigh and Caden being the two youngest of the birthdays had some nice presents to open. The kids played and everyone enjoyed great conversation and catching up. Most had too much to eat and some had a little too much to drink. But it was all good. As the sun went down e started a nice fire in the fire pit that Todd and I built a few weeks ago in one of our last visits. It was getting late so we took Brooklyne and Ryleigh with us to the hotel. Everyone went right to sleep, it was a big day. I made sure to get some photos of the family before everyone started to leave. Here is the family.

It's always great to get together with family. Over the last few years we've had much more of an opportunity to spend time with Sommer and Heather and their families. So this winter we are making Arizona our winter stop. Our son, Chris, lives in Mesa so we have reservations in Gold Canyon for 4 months. It will be nice to spend some quality time with our son and do some sightseeing and enjoy the desert. One week left of work, drive to South Dakota for the drivers license and then the RV-Dreams Rally. Ready to hit the road and it won't be long.
