We had a big Williams Family Reunion today with all of my dad's side of the family.  We made food that reminded us of Grandma and played a jeopardy type game with questions about Clyde and Anna.  It was so fun to see everybody and I kept thinking over and over how much Grandma would have loved today.  She would have been so happy to have all the people she loved all gathered together and having a good time.

I signed Rylee up for a free online preschool that's called Upstart.  I went to a training for it last week and they explained how it all worked and then talked to us about their success rates and how much better kids do in school after they've used this program.  It's supposed to prepare you for Kindergarten and sometimes even help the kids learn to read. We're supposed to do 15 minutes a day/5 days a week.  She liked the program but she had a hard time with the mouse.  This is her first time doing anything on the computer and is used to using the iPad and doing everything with her finger.

We celebrated Rylee's birthday tonight.  She got spoiled with lots of fun new toys and games.

Ry wanted chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting and she wanted to help put the sprinkles on.

We had a BBQ with the Cummings tonight.  It's always so fun to catch up with them and for our kids to play together.  After dinner, Erin got out her bubble stuff and the kids all took a turn.

Today was the first day of school for the boys.  Coopers starting 3rd grade and he's in Miss Seamons class.  Jacks is in 5th grade and in Miss Judd's class.

Ry had to get in on the action too.

This is Jude and Abbey Wightman.  Jacks and Cooper always meet up with them at the park and walk to and from school together.

Rylee turned 4 today!  She's such a sweet girl and we love having her in the family.  She loves pink and purple, reading books, playing with her brothers and sisters and always wants to help with everything.  Bert is in Santa Barbara again this week so we didn't do much today and decided to wait to celebrate on the weekend.  Tiff brought her balloons and she got to open one present which was a Lego set so she can be like her brothers.  For dinner we grabbed some Chick-fil-a (one of her favorites) and had a picnic with Nana and Tiff and then played at the Westmore Park (also a favorite).

Rylee's been very helpful with watering my flowers (and the fence) lately with her water gun.

I made this cute little path up to the gate earlier this summer.  I laid down weed barrier and put some of the leftover rocks down.  This is what it looks like just 3 months later.  So much for the weed barrier.

We had our Unsworth Reunion today up in West Valley.  The kids always have a great time playing outside with their cousins.  They especially love the races and the water balloon toss that we do every year.  It's always fun to visit with family that we haven't seen for a long time.

We gave the boys Color Me Mine gift cards for Christmas and we finally got around to using them today.  Their friend Jude came along with us and all of the boys had a great time and want to go back.  Jacks made a snake that can hold things, Cooper made an owl bank and Jude made a robot bank.

Cooper was so excited to go on his trip with Nana and Papa today.  They were headed down to Vernal to swim and check out some of the dinosaur things down there.

Mom was ready for her gel nails to be off tonight.

I had mopped the floor today while the girls were napping so they were quite confused when they woke up and all of the dining chairs were in the living room.  It didn't take them long to make a game out of it and they started playing on the chairs and pretending they were on a train.

Bert made Oreo shakes for family home evening tonight.  They were a big hit!

Rylee wanted to have a sleepover with the boys tonight so they set up their beds and we made popcorn and they watch Up.

One last ride for all the kids before we pack up camp and head home. 

Cooper, Tate, Drew and Bree
Luke, Rylee, Tessa and Jacks

The girls entertained themselves in Nana's trailer with the games while everyone else packed up camp. Jacks threw up in the middle of the night last night all over himself and his sleeping bag and pillow.  It was a huge pain to clean up and I'm glad we're headed home today so we can get that all washed in the washing machine at home.  Thankfully it was just that one time and he felt fine today when he woke up.
