Cousins, cousins, EVERYWHERE!! Here is Abi, Kyen, Betsy, Lizzie, and Jay during the parade.
Here are cousins Brenan, Josh and Nathan during the parade.
And here is Emily with her very favorite cousin Shirley during the parade. They were practically connected at the hip whenever they were together! Jay is in the background.
Here is Emily, May and Ellen, trying to get some shade during the parade.
Here is Betsy with her very favorite cousin, Lizzie at the BBQ. They are 2 months apart in age and get along wonderfully. Here is one of Aubreys' finds during the afternoon BBQ. Yes, that is a very large tomato worm, YUCK!Lizzie, Emily, Abi, and Betsy in one of "those bouncy things" at the Arts and Crafts Fair.
Here come the rain! This is the storm rolling in over Pioneer Park while we were at the Arts and Crafts Fair. It rained and POURED very soon after this shot.
Along with the regular Celebration in town, there was also a Theo and Imogene Peterson Family Reunion. Tons of family was there, and it was so nice to see everyone again. This is Aubrey, attempting to break the pinata. That is Rachel, Kent, and Aunt Deon in the background. This picture may need an explanation! The rules of the game were to empty the box of tissue, one tissue at a time. First one through the box won. There were 10 games that were just as funny and random as this one! In the picture is Eva, Aaron, Eric, David (yellow hat), Cameron and Hyrum. This was honestly one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Those of us who watching were all laughing hysterically. These teeth were one of the prizes that came in the handmade bags handed out to each great-grandchild. There were probably 50 bags made! Thank you so much for the great prizes and efforts toward a great reunion Aunt Deon and Uncle Jared!! A terrible shot, but the only one I have from the fireworks. We were sitting about 500 feet from where the fireworks got set off (in the parking lot of the Centennial Chapel). It was super loud, smokey, and ash kept getting in our eyes (hence Aubreys' expression). It was great, I just think that we were too close. They actually ended up starting the show over an hour late, so we didn't get home and settled in bed til nearly 11pm.
It was a wonderful day, and a great time with family, friends, and the whole town! I can't wait 'til next year!
