Family Reunions in Utah and Texas

So the past two weeks have been pretty busy. We went up to The Peterson Family Reunion in Fillmore Utah one weekend. It was a lot of fun to spend the time with everyone that went. Leilani had the time of her life. She ran and ran and ran all day at the park. She wore Papa out.

I was pushing her in the swing and she was having a blast. I wanted to be the cool dad and push her higher like she asked. She went up and flew out from underneath the chain. Luckily Momma was there taking pictures and caught her.

I don't know where she got the energy to play so hard but she loved it.

Nikki was great with Leilani the whole trip. Leilani is lucky to have her as an Aunt.

All the first cousins. Oh, and Grandmother Peterson.

After all that running around she needed a bath. She loves this Elmo towel.

I have been to Fillmore a million times and have never been to the Avalon Theater. We always talk about going to it and never have. It was really cute and fun. My Grandparents saw gone with the wind at it back in the good old day. Shrek 4 may not be such a classic but it was fun.

So this past week we drove to El Paso for the Pina~Armendariz family reunion. It was a lot of fun. We got to meet family we had not met before and see family we had not seen in a long time. Leilani again had the time of her life. She made some new little great friends. She also played for 5 days straight.

The first night the family had a luau. Our tio here has lost a ton of weight. We hardly recognised him when we saw him. He looked great.

Leilani liked her little second cousin Alexis. This girl was a lot of fun.

Leilani enjoyed riding this little horse at Great Grandpa's house.

We swung by and visited with an old coworker and friend of mine. He son is adorable. Thanks for the visit Elvira.
These past weeks have been fun. I'm sad that they are over. Now it is back to reality and the office. Thank you to everyone that helped make these events memorable.
