Everett Family Reunion

Ryan's mom planned an Everett family reunion last month for the Everett side. We started out Friday morning hiking to Ensign Peak with all the cousins. We had a banner and at the top we all signed our names.

We drove past the capitol, what a beautiful building.

After lunch we met everyone at the Heber Valley Girl's Camp. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and it was cold and rainy the whole time. That night we had some group building activities but we were only able to do two of the three cause it was a downpour. The first activity was a zip line. We had to climb straight up a pole, shimmy across a rope then go down the zip line.

We had to shimmy across this rope using the hanging ropes. The ropes got further apart as you went. It was scary!




I think this is Aaron..
and here's a video of me

For the next activity we had to get everyone from one side to the other through this spider web. Once we used a hole it was closed off and the holes were different sizes and heights. It really started raining here, you can see how wet we were, but we all made it through.

Not a very good video, but you can see the web

The next day was spent doing crafts, skits, and eating lots of food. The boys talked near the fire pit most of the time and Jessica and I stayed warm near the heater in the kitchen. Overall we had a nice time and we really enjoyed visiting family and getting to know them more!
