Davis Reunion 09'

Oh baby, it's Davis Reunion time!!! This year we were supposed to go to the cabin at Lava Hot Springs, but because of some unforeseen complications, we weren't able to go. So we decided to have a makeshift 3 day reunion right at Gayle and Lorraines...........man, are they troopers or what??!!

DISCLAIMER: Many of the following pictures contain my children looking a bit like orphans. I do love them, I do usually have their hair done, bows on, etc. and I usually don't wear ugly T-shirts, but unfortunately I was a bit lazy from all of the events and didn't really care. It will never happen again.

Now let us continue:

Gayle's friend Dennis loaned us this AWESOME train for the kids.....check it out!! They all loved it, and it was definently the highlight of the entire weekend:)










And away they go!!


Train #2
(there were 3 trains all together...)






This is why Ella ALWAYS has a bow on in public. But daddy took this picture without my knowledge. She's our little cue ball and we love her!!








Little Miss Mikaela





Mikaela and Cooper



Next up was a water balloon fight--luckily we were able to get this in before the storm came in and the fall temperatures began!! Some of us didn't get the memo about the water activities; thus the reason for some of the children running around in their undies.....


Look at those sweet cheeks!! That's right Connor, I'm talkin to YOU!!




Hannah and Roxy





MOVIE NIGHT! We were supposed to have it outside, but it was raining. So we improvised... Movie choice: BOLT!



Pam had a cute idea to get these little treat boxes from the movie theater, the kids loved them.


Boo enjoying her juice box during the flick....



The next morning some of us hiked Timp Cave. We all piled in our AWESOME 12 passenger van....(Jake bought it to haul all of his guys to Clearfield, and man does that thing come in handy!!) We arrived in style! Oh yeah.




Aubrey, Hannah, Me and Mikaela



Sidenote: My sister-in-law's flip flop broke at the beginning of the hike!! (Bummer for her, but yay for me because Halli was ALREADY whining that she was tired, so Tiff took her home with her:) Thanks Tiff!! **Thus the reason that Halli is not in any of the following pictures...



Grandpa, Benjamin and Meg







Just before entering the cave. Sorry I forgot your hat, sweetie. You're still hot.






Jake's brother Matt, being.....Matt.





Happy Trails!! Thanks Gayle and Lorraine for everything, it was a lot of fun!!

So much fun!! Reunions are the best and those trains are SWEET!!! I enjoy reading what you write Tandi--it's like you're sitting right beside me talking to me!!

I'm glad you made some fun memories, and just so you know-I was out in public at three different places and Lexi's hair wasn't touched-and a year ago I was praying that she would grow hair----what was I thinkin>? Your girls are beautiful with or without bows!!
