Wirig family reunion

Two weeks after my family reunion we had a Wirig family reunion. The Wirig's are my Mother-in-laws side of the family. This was the first vacation Jeff and I have had together since being in Colorado. It was a welcome break!

Morgan and I drove over to Utah on Saturday, she did great we jimmy-rigged our dvd player so she could watch it and I listed to Twilight on CD. She watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ALL THE WAY THERE! I couldn't believe it, no complaining until I turned it off when we made pit stops! She didn't even take a nap. I feel kind of bad, but it was so nice at the same time.

While I was there without Jeff I went and visited friends and old co-workers. It was so nice to be back, but we still missed so many friends (a special shout out to Mike and Emma who we stood up and were never able to see!!! We still love you guys and hope you don't hate us!!! We feel AWFUL!)

Jeff came in Wednesday after noon and we visited his old office and had a get together with the Sucher side of the family playing games and eating dinner. It was so fun to see all the Suchers who could come!

Then the Wirig reunion started. It was so well planned (a special thanks to Danielle for organizing everything, good work!) There was good food, snow cones, cotton candy, horse rides, dodge ball, fun kids games, family reunion t-shirts (I haven't ever been to a reunion with shirts before!), girls day/boys day, talent show, swimming, a giant blow up slide, a special tribute to Grandma and Grandpa, and a special testimony meeting to close the week on Sunday. Good times were had by all.

Having two family reunions so close together definitely made me so grateful for the two wonderful families that I get to be a part of.

Here are some pictures, and I don't know how to put them in order so here you go:

Jeff's aunt had this little suit that she let Morgan try...I don't think she liked it much but I thought it was sure cute!

Here are the five pregnant ladies that were at the reunion. I think it ranged from like 37 weeks to 8 weeks! It will be so fun to have so many new babies!

Here is the whole gang. Well we are missing a few families but these are all the people who were able to make it, quite the group eh?

There were just too many cute pictures of Morgan to choose from!

Morgan was so excited about the horses but she was pretty nervous once she got on it!

Here she is trying to sneak a drink.

Morgan LOVED LOVED LOVED the giant slide. After she could do it all by herself she was on there for probably an hour and a half to two hours.

Morgan loves snow cones as much as mommy does!

She doesn't love cotton candy as much as mommy does though. I gave her some and she just looked at me like I was crazy.

This was a picture from out girls day. So fun!

This was Grandmas birthday party. Since then Morgan has been obsessed with singing the happy birthday song.

Well, I think that sums it up! What a fun trip! I can't wait to go back and visit!

That looked like too much fun! I can't believe that morgan was brave enough to get on the horse, I think Carter would have chickened out. :)

That looks like a fun family reunion! And look at you with straight hair, I love it. My favorite picture is of Morgan sneaking a drink, too cute. She's growing up fast!

Your hair is so straight in those pictures. I don't think I've ever seen it so straight.
