Two of a Kind!

These cousins were lovin' there time together. How cute are they? The Riley Family Reunion was so fun! Thanks to Michele and Mike for putting it all together. I didn't get nearly enough pictures. (No pictures from swimming at the Bountiful Rec Center and no pictures from our nephews Mission Farewell). It was great to spend time with the Riley clan and we can't wait for next year. No pressure Rob~!

He finally did it!!!!!

Yes, Jason finally got his Bachelor's degree!! He's been working full time and going to school part time for a long time and all of his hard work and late nights have finally paid off. Jason wasn't able to make it to his own graduation because of the reunion, so his sister, Michele, organized a "Mock" graduation ceremony so I still was able to get a picture of him in a cap and gown. :)

Here is the whole family playing "pomp and circumstance" on kazoos. It was great!

Jason was even asked to give his "Valedictorian speech" which he did a great job. It was very entertaining but also informative too.
Congratulations Jason! You rocked that school! Graduating with High Distinction and everything! Love you!
(Our nephew, Kyle graduated high school this year so he was recognized too!)

The "Big Kahuna's" tour of Bountiful, UT

After our trip to Santa Maria, we spent Thursday driving all the way to Utah to go to Jason's Family Reunion. The drive from Santa Maria to Santaquin was brutal, but we survived it. We stayed at Jason's parents Thursday night and on Friday, Jason went golfing with his Dad, his brother Rob and his wife, Tiff. I took the kids and met up with some of my good friends in Salt Lake. These were all girls I went to college with and we have stayed close all these years. We had a great time, but of course, I forgot to take any pictures. I also forgot to take pictures at the BBQ we had Friday night in Provo at Jason's brother's house, where the Family Reunion officially kicked off. We had a great time there with yummy food and good conversation and Kamryn loved playing with her cousins and jumping on the trampoline. Mike and Teresa were great hosts!

Saturday morning we all met up and Jason's Dad (who has nicknamed himself "The Big Kahuna" took the family on a driving tour of Bountiful, the city where he grew up. The pictures below is the home where he grew up and where Jason and his siblings would visit their grandparents.
The Big Kahuna himself!
Our final stop on the tour was the cemetery. This is a picture of almost all the grandkids. You'll notice Kamryn is missing. She stubbornly refused to be in any of the pictures. Shocker!
Just a note...these pictures of Jason and his siblings is not complete. Janelle and her family were not able to make it. They were definitely missed.

Just another lovely day with the family. We walked around Solvang and took a small hike to a waterfall. Perfect!

Santa Maria

Jason had to go to Santa Maria for business over a week ago, so we thought we would tag along. His work offered to pay for a bigger room so why not. We started off our vacation with some quality naptime, as seen below. Beds were not required.
We spent most of our time at the pool. It was Logan's first time in a pool and the kid couldn't have been happier.

Kamryn enjoyed the hot tub for the most part, so Jason and I took turns lounging with her in the warm water.

Haircut poorly documented

This was the before shot....
some random shots in the middle...

and the after shot....
Notice the problem? What do you mean you can't tell the difference?? Yes, I'm a genius, I know. (We took off 5 inches, in case you were wondering).
