Reunion Ranch Weekend

Over Labor Day weekend, my family went up to Star Valley for a weekend at the Reunion Ranch. We have rented this cabin for the past couple of years, and it's the perfect size for our family! 6 bedrooms, a nice big living room downstairs for the kids, a pavilion w/ a bbq and picnic tables outside, lots of fenced land so we can bring our horses, and it's in the serenity of Star Valley, our favorite place! In case you didn't already know why we go to Star Valley so much, my dad was raised there, and so was Kevin's mom. We were able to convince my grandma to come along too. She grew up there, and recently moved to Utah after living in Star Valley her whole life. She was just getting too old for the winters, and she wanted to be closer to some of her kids and the temple. I'm glad she made it back with us, and she seemed to have a great time, too!
We did some hiking:

Lots of motorcycle and 4-wheeler riding:

We made s'mores around the campfire, relaxed, .........

went horseback riding up to the top of Draney Peak:

And took lots of family pictures! My brother Shane and his family: Dawna, Sam, and Katie, live in Jackson Hole now, so we don't get to see them very often.

Here is my sister Brianne and her family, Kyle, Toby, Jack, and Maci. Kyle is Kevin's brother.
Here's my younger brother, Kody, and his little family: Brianna and Jovi.
And my youngest sister Season and her family, Tyrel, Easton, Logan, and Luke, recently moved to Burley, so we don't see them much anymore either. It was good to have a real "reunion" with everyone! We all used to live here in Utah so close, but that's not the case anymore. :(

And here's the whole clan, Grandma Henderson included!

We had fun playing Rock band! And we celebrated Luke's 1st birthday :)

And here's a couple of shots of my awesome grandma! She is 85, and has the heart of a teenager from what the doctors say! She's a wonderful woman, and I hope I can be like her when I grow up!
