Games Crafts and Angry Birds

The best thing about the reunion was getting to spend time with family.  We played a lot of games, and it was so good for the cousins to see each other again.


The kids got to color their own t-shirts and they were so excited about it.  They each worked very hard on their own design and then they all signed the backs of each other's shirts.


One day all of the adults except for Grandma and Grandpa went out without the kids.  We first went to Skyline Chili and then to the laser tag place.  We got there between games so we fit in a quick round of glow in the dark putt putt.



One night we made s'mores and just played outside.  They set up a ninja warrior course and also a huge Angry Birds game.  It was a hit with the kids.





Once it started getting dark we let our kids look for fireflies.  The only time the've seen them before is at Grandma's house years ago, so made sure they would get to stay up one night and try to find them. 
Plenty were out and they even managed to catch a few.

Woestman Family Reunion 2018

We were so happy to be able to go to the Woestman Family Reunion this year.  We didn't think we would be able to so it was extra exciting that we made it.
The family has grown a ton since we started doing these reunions.  Below are all the grandkids together.

It was a lot of fun to just hang out with everyone at Grandma's house.



On Sunday after church we went to visit Great Grandma Woestman's grave, she recently passed away.

That night we had the traditional talent show.  Tucker has been talking since the last reunion about how he was going to MC the thing.  That was his main complaint when we didn't think we were going to make it.  He kept saying, "But I have to go, I'm in charge of the talent show!"

Mt. Rainier

For one of our last days in Washington we decided to go to on of my favorite places on the earth, Mt. Rainier.
It was really great just getting out and spending time in nature.





















Calista was not a fan of the snow.
