A Smoot Reunion

(Hailey and my son Max, in the pink glasses)

This weekend was my (Hailey's) side of the families reunion. For the Smoot (my dad's side) Kjar and Essig cousins to get together. We spent al day Saturday up at Pineview. 
Boating, playing beach volleyball, letting the kids run in in the sand, tubing and being together.

This is boat Captain Eric.
We brought our boat up as well as a couple of my uncles brought theirs. So Eric was on the lake most of the day taking everyone wakeboarding, tubing and etc.

This was the only nap my poor Max got all day, he fell asleep in my dad's arms out on the lake then we laid him down on a blanket in the sun, 10 feet from a beach volleyball game, and with all my noisy family around so as you can imagine the nap only lasted 15 mins.

(Ady and max both took turns with Ady's sunglasses, max loved them, I think he needs his own glasses)

Eric with a bunch of the boy cousins, Eric said they were INSANE in the tube wars!

The best babysitters and aunts, my sisters, Bree and Christa

We FORCED, as Breanna says, her out on the tube for a gentle ride, look at her face though, she hated every second of it.

My dirty kids played and dug in the sand all day.

(this is the only pics I got of the Smoots as a group, and they are praying together, how appropriate. 

After a full day at the lake we drove up to Monte Cristo, about a half hour away for dinner at my aunt and uncles cabin, although I don't think you can even call it a cabin, its more like the Kjar lodge, most everyone was spending the night up there after dinner, but we had to come home because Eric had to teach Gospel Doctorine today. 
We had a fun day with my family. We always do when we get together, we are such a HUGE group and my kids love running around with my cousins kids.
