Oodles of Pics from our Rogers Family Reunion

Before I jump in to the family reunion pictures, here's two other random pictures of Carrie: First, walking around wearing my flip flops and next, an example of her drinking all the milk from the cereal bowl. :)

And now TONS of pictures from our weekend in Payson, Arizona with my Dad's side of the family. There are nine kids in his family and ALL of them were there. I finally got to meet a few of my cousins that I had never met before because we've never lived close to each other and according to my parents, we haven't had a family reunion that included everyone in over 20 years!

My dad is in the middle of the picture in the blue shirt

Justin throwing the football to my brother Jake

Carrie with my cousin Hannah. She just turned 3 and was the closest in age to Carrie.

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before, but Carrie is NOT a hand holder. At all. But she and Hannah walked around the campground like this for at least 10 minutes before she was "done" with it. So cute!

Some cousins

Shucking Corn... We. Ate. So. Much. Corn.... :)

Playing in the dirt

If you only look at her feet, she looks like a little black girl!

And now, a puppy dog with a spot on her face. So much dirt, so little time...

My sister Marissa and her fiance Brandon

My parents cooking "breakfast explosion"

Saturday we drove into Payson to a park to have lunch with some more extended parts of the family (2nd cousins, etc.) and Carrie fell asleep on the 10 minute drive. Justin was an awesome dad and sat in the van waiting for her to wake up. (He also followed her around the campsite all weekend making sure she stayed out of trouble, thanks babe!)

Day two of corn on the cob. I think over the weekend we ate 12 dozen ears... I'm not kidding.

My immediate family

The park we went to had a skate park in it. Justin and Jake are sitting on the top and Brandon's on his way down the ramp (holding the skateboard... I'm not sure why he's not riding it)

Climbing the playground to go down the slide, over and over and over again

On the swings

Grandma Lori riding down the big twirly slide with Carrie where at the bottom she says, "Gin? Gin?" (interpretation: Again?!)

Watching in awe as an older cousin climbs up the huge ladder to the slide

My cousin accidentally sat on a grill top on the fire pit (without a fire in it) and got what we called "grill butt". I promised him I wouldn't say his name when I posted this picture :)

Snacking on some graham crackers in her camping chair

Carrie's "crib", a.k.a. the space on the side of the bed in the motor-home. We blocked the bottom off with a cooler. Instant baby bed!

And there you have it! Our weekend in pictures! We played games, ate a ton, and got some sun :) It was great!

Looks like a comfy bed. Love all the pictures. Looks like everyone had a great time. Must have been a lot cooler there as well.
Love Nana
