Reece reunion

I was in charge of my family reunion this year.  I thought we should get at least a little away since the last few years have just been in Provo.  And maybe people would stick around the whole time.  As it turned out, not so much.  But we had fun in our short time together. 
We headed down to Zions Park Sunday about 1 p.m.  Then we had to turn around and go back cause we forgot the crockpot with dinner in it.  So about 2 p.m. we were on the road again.  We had cabins reserved at Zions Ponderosa, and they turned out way nicer than anyone expected, so that was a big bonus.  And the kids LOVED the pool.  It had 2 levels and 2 slides and 2 hot tubs.  Pretty fun.  So of course we went swimming the second we got there.  Then we watched "The 3 Amigos" on the wall outside which was a blast cause some guy was laughing his head off and it all made us laugh harder.  The next day we went to Zions and it was absolutely beautiful.  I wish we could have stayed longer, but the kids were done by midafternoon.  We got back and went swimming again and had dinner and then played games at the barn.  The next morning was crazy insane windy so we cleaned up and got out.  Short but sweet.  And my turn's done for 6 years.  Woo-hoo!
 The kids were so excited about the squirrels but I scared them by telling them they bit.  Didn't stop Scott from getting this closeup.

 Amber earned her junior ranger badge at the park and this is her getting sworn in.

 On our hike up to Emerald Pools.  It was beautiful.

My mountain climber.  1 foot off the ground.

Scott looks as though he is climbing up to the top of a very high rock, you wouldn't know that he has one foot on the ground if you didn't say so. The squirel is a great shoot, Scott's a pretty good photograher too.
