Family Reunion

This July we had a Brinkman Family Reunion.   It was perfect timing since Ryan's parents were moving that same week.  Since we are living with them it means we had to move to but most of our stuff was in boxes because all summer long we've been in Baltimore.  For the worst part of the move Owen and I were gone we missed most of the drama and Ryan had more time to help out since we weren't around.    We got to Utah  a day before my cousins and got to spend some time with the Pett girls.  Us girls like to be gone during big moves.  It was fun to see Clarissa and her kids.  I asked if they remembered who I was and Avery said no and Rocco said well I know your my Aunt but that's all.  So cute I guess that's what happens when you only see them once a year and they are young. 

Well  back to the Brinkman party.  Apparently eveyones favoirte part was when I wasn't there.  They played some games Friday night and I was getting Owen ready for bed. Oh well to start off with Friday some people took a walk and some of us played at the park.  Owen had a fun time in the baby swing then sitting on the grass watching people play.  Next was the lake.  I was effiy about going since we would be outside but Owen and I sat in the shade and played.  The last time the boat went out I tried Knee boarding I thought I got up the last time but I didn't extended my arms fully so apparenty I didn't. 
At the Lake

Then Saturday we spent the day doing rides at Park City.  I took Owen on the carosole a bunch of times and I got to ride the coaster once.  Then I walked him back home.  It was hot he was tired and the lines were long.  No fun.  At about 6 Alyssa got tired of the rides so she voluntreed to play with Owen while I went back.  It was lots  of fun.  There was the Apline slide, coaster, and zip line.  I think I got the better deal.  It was cooler, and shorter lines when I went back.  Thanks Alyssa. Owen did really well for Alyssa till the last half hour when he was tired and he screamed and screamed.  Then I get home, go lay down with him for five minutes and he is asleep. 

Zip line see my Grandma!

2 out of 4 nights we were there Owen got to sleep in a big bed.  I think he LOVED it.  While we were there he picked up Desirees cold.  His first sickness.  He had trouble sleeping and would wake up coughing.  Every night he ended up in bed with me which isn't fun on a twin bed.  Luckily half the time we had a queen or king bed.  Owen and I had fun visiting lots of family in July.  Now we get to settle down for a few months before our 6 week adventure in Atlanta.
