FHE with the whole fam

One of the things that I love the most about visiting my family in Utah is when we have Family Home Evening with everyone. It is amazing how much fun we have together. It makes me wonder if my parents ever imagined FHE with us all grown up. When we were younger, I know for a fact that it was very difficult for my parents to get all of us to sit peaceably in one spot for any amount of time. FHE always had someone arguing, crying, or pouting about something. Now when we get together we only have crying from the grandkids. All of us kids are having a blast playing together with our siblings and their kids.

Here is a far off shot of the group playing ultimate Frisbee. They also played kickball. Both of my boys commented on how much fun they had playing games with everyone.

Sariah had a blast playing with her cousins, she kept trying to give Hank kisses. It was so cute.

Sariah so wants to be big and play with her brother and Daddy. Here she is trying to get the soccer ball from them.

The great thing about Utah is that kids can play at the park and they don't die from the 100 degree heat. It was so nice out. Here Sariah is playing with her cousin Hannah and Abe.

Cute Hannah

Sariah loved the swings.

Sariah and Abe both loved the swings together.

Seriously how could you not love these faces.

Cousin Sean and Cousin Amber are great friends and they love to adventure together. Here they are in the tube.

Sariah just stood on the outside of the tube...she couldn't get the courage to go through....maybe next time.

Overall we had a blast with all of my siblings and their kids. I wish we lived closer so we could do this more often.
