Over the 4th of July this year my mom’s side of the family had a little family reunion to celebrate my Grandma’s 80th birthday. Most of my aunts, uncles and cousins were all together for the 3 day event. It was a great time. We spent one day up the canyon doing a zip line and playing games. On the 4th we went bowling (my Grandma just retired this year from her bowling league…she is awesome) and had a nice lunch together. Then we split up to do our own activities for the 4th. We ended up going down to Grandma Pett’s carnival since it is one of our kids favorite activities. We all loved it. That night we did some sparklers with the kids and then walked to the park in our new neighborhood to watch the firework show that Thanksgiving Point does each year. It was lovely. The last day of our reunion we spent doing service around my Grandma’s house. That afternoon we played water games and then had her birthday celebration. It was a grand time. I love family and the 4th!
