Williams' Family Reunion!

Craig pulling our nice trailer out of our spot, heading for home!
Just one of the many rides that were taken. Craig with the kids.

Zach and Caleb fishing at Fairview Lakes.
Zach fell in LOVE with the Brian's dog Daisy...whenever I was looking for Zach this is where I found him.
Here we are just about to launch our canoe...little did we know that cute Libby would freak out about 30 feet out onto the lake. She was yelling at Craig, "Dad you're going too fast!" Crying and screaming at everyone that we were going to tip it over! She looks so innocent right here, it didn't last long!
Just some of the second cousins who all became really cute friends over the week.
My kids hanging out on the swing ladder. They loved the swing!

Williams Family Reunion 2008

We had so much fun spending last week with the Williams side of the family. I am always amazed at how close this family is. It is like things just pick up right where they left off, not an awkward moment. I have always loved that about them. The kids enjoyed playing, swinging on the swing (twisted and backward, which looked very frightening!) fishing, snipe hunting, 4- wheeling, crafts, playing wiffle ball, exchanging secret cousin gifts, pin trading and over all just hanging out getting to know each other better. We were lucky enough to be able to borrow Craig's bosses camping trailer. WOW! What a difference that made. I think I could get used to those. Very nice! We enjoyed every minute of our time up at the Veenker Cabin and property. It was so much fun to reconnect with so many great people. The week's events ended with a trip to the Provo Temple where Craig and I were able to do Baptisms for the Dead with Caleb and other cousins. It was a very neat experience because it happened to be Caleb's very first time going and doing them. I was very thankful and happy we were able to share it with him. The entire week was amazing. The only bad thing was the CLEAN UP! But other than that I can't complain. I just walked away from the whole experience so thankful for everything I have. I love all of my family! See you all in 3 years!

Camping in a trailer is definately the way to go! Looks like a fun trip with lots of great family!

You were such a big part of making the trip a blast. You have such a cute family. I hope you don't mind I stole a few of your pictures off your post.(hehe) We are already looking forward to the next reunion.
