Russell Holmes Family Reunion 2010

That's kind of crazy to think that we are the parents/grandparents hosting the reunion with our own clan. Crazy...but great! We went to Duck Creek Campground up above Cedar City Utah. Pluses...all 20 of us are here, Mom and Gramma heaven. Russell and I met our Henry for the first time. Brendon and Steph and their cute Henry John... What a darling boy he is!Eating, visiting, playing games. Nature Hikes, Holding, rocking, playing with , and lovin' on my babies.
Henry....sweet little guy!Hannah smilin' for Gramma!Warner getting his cool on!Kennedy getting ready for a stroller ride Daphne and GrampaJackson spending time hanging out with his favorite Randi on the hammock Skyler in his glory...superb fisherman. Sitting around the campfire. Laughter of my kids , as we are all together for the first time in many years. Watching as our boys got into their Holmes style of fun....a "polar bear" style dunk and swim across the water hole....brrrrrr!!!!
Warner and Henry enjoying meeting each other...fun cousin adventures ahead! Minuses....Rain daily, but the thunder was amazing! ...too cold (for me) at night. Limiting our activities due to inclement weather. I didn't take as many pictures as usual. Heidi and I will be sharing.
A gorgeous sunset as we traveled home.


These are the times of our life. Miss them all already.

Wow, looks like so much fun! We went up to Duck Creek a couple of years ago for a reunion for Brett's family, and it was really great.

What a wonderful trip and what great pictures. I can relate to the joy and fun since we just got back from camping with our gang in Wyoming. David wasn't there but the rest were.
You have such darling grandchildren.... They are surely blessed to have you for a grandmom. I am happy for you. Life is good when families love each other and the Lord. Hugs, Lura
