After years of missing it because of Sun Valley and dealing with vacation time I was finally able to go to the Robinson Family Reunion which happened to be held in my parents back yard. After Sun Valley we continued the vacation with a quiet week at my parents. It was so nice and relaxing. We had a nice lunch and the kids played with the dunking machine, train, swim pools, and bounce house and slide.
The best part though was seeing these two lovely ladies.
We were the "big girls" meaning the older ones as opposed to the five "little girls" all my sister's age. We all live in different states and the last time the three of us were together was 9 years ago at my mission farewell. When we were little we had all sorts of wild adventures running around the farm together. It was nice to be home since I probably wont be back for a year. Was going to do Christmas but not with baby #3 due a few weeks later.
After a few days at Snowbird we hit the road again and ended up in Sun Valley Idaho. Swimming, shopping, dinners, girls lunches, pictures, shooting, games, visiting... Who can get enough? The kids had thier first swimming experiences while we were gone... they LOVED IT. The kids were such troopers and it was fun for the whole family to get to know them. If we hadnt got to all of Daddy's family reunions without him, I dont know when his family would ever meet them... when they are full on teenagers maybe :)

Im sorry I've been so bad at this. But we've had a wonderful summer! The kids and I took off and left Daddy and went to all of our family vacations by ourselves. We started in Snowbird Utah for the Trimble family reunion. We hiked Cecret Lake (no I didnt misspell it), ate, rode the chair lift to the top and back (Jack Jack went with), ate some more, played video games, ate, met Ashley's boyfriend Peter from Heber, ate, wore snowbird pants that Aunt Melanie makes each year. She even made the kids thier own pairs, which was really cute.
