Dinner was Good!

Lacey is a great eater!  Well, this day, she ate everything up and went to sleep.  The boys thought it was too funny that they had to take a bunch of pictures!  She still had the spoon in her hand!

The Bear Reunion

In July, we went to the Bear Reunion in Lakeside.  Every year we always look forward to going.  There are so many fun things to do.  The kids love spending time on the lake going on canoe and boat rides.  And Grandpa made a little beach for the kids to play in.  The smaller kids love the sandbox and spend hours making castles.  Sand volleyball is a favorite for the teenagers and adults.  We have volleyball tournaments and ping pong tournaments.  (You know you're good at ping pong if you can beat Grandma!  I don't even try!)  There is always yummy food and great company!

The neatest program was planned one evening.  Grandma had shirts made to go along with the theme: The Title of Liberty.  All of the children and men dressed up in costumes and acted out the events surrounding the Title of Liberty in the Book of Mormon.  It was a really neat program!  Grandpa stood up and spoke as well as the Uncles.  The primary kids then sang a song.  Here are a few pictures...

This is our family: The Reeds.

Here is the banner that was posted under the ramada the whole weekend.

Here is Uncle Wes (my brother-in-law) holding the Bear Title of Liberty and we all signed it.

All the men supporting it.

Then we added the children.

Grandpa spoke for a few minutes.

Grandma and Grandpa Bear:  We love them!

Here are a few of the kids singing their song.

More of the kids: my kids, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Here is a swing that Grandpa put together.  The kids and adults love it.  You spin it around tight and then let go.  The little kids really went flying.  I had to get a picture of the adults on it too!

Camping with Lacey

This past summer, we went camping several times, mostly for different reunions.  We all love being outside, especially Lacey!  Here are a few pictures of her waiting for some snacks.  I can't believe that she is 18 months old already!  She is full of spunk and laughter and definitely a daddy's girl!
  And you know that Ben just loves that!

Highchair Makeover

I bought this highchair at a yard sale for $2 or $3, I can't remember for sure.  The wood matched perfectly with our table and chairs and I had in mind to give it a little makeover.

Here is the before:
Kind of gross looking!

Here is the after:
Lacey loves it!  There is a tray that goes on it and she will sit in that chair for a good 30 minutes or so while I'm making dinner and then continue to stay there while we eat.  It has been one of the best purchases!  Red is one of my favorite colors and it goes perfectly with my kitchen!

Jared's Graduation

My youngest brother, Jared, graduated from high school in May.  It was a pretty long graduation.  Especially when you are trying to entertain so many young ones!  Here are just a few pictures of the night...
