It was exciting! It's always exciting when the Fox family gathers. It's exciting and it's loud. Abe grew up in Spokane where four of the nine siblings and their families live. Abe's parents have a marvelous house that is a kid's paradise and is perfect for big family gatherings so that is where we usually have the reunions. This year we had a Utah reunion and without a central location that could comfortably handle a group this size it was a challenge for Abe who planned and organized the 5 day affair.
The whole event had an "organized chaos" theme. We're several days out from the reunion and to be honest with you my mind is still reeling a bit from the whole event. As it turns out I'm a little more of a control freak than I thought I was. I don't go with the flow as well as I would have hoped. So since I haven't quite processed the whole reunion yet, I will put up pictures in no particular order with just a bit of commentary.
Celebrating cousin Megan's 16th birthday at Classic Fun Center with roller skating, bounce houses, and laser tag. Crazy, but fun.
The youth went to the Oquirrh Mountain temple Saturday morning. Bethany, Julia, and Talitha weren't 12 yet , but they sat in the waiting room for the group to finish up at the temple and joined them for a testimony meeting afterwards.
The family at a church house for breakfast and a great game of Fox Jeopardy. The night before was the family talent show.
My favorite picture of my little charmer-- eating his 5th cup of ice cream.
Lunch at the Lion House in Salt Lake.
We did a lot during this reunion and it was wonderful to see so much family, but I am very happy to be with just my people this week. This size of crowd is a little easier to manage:)
