We had a family day on Saturday. We had given up on getting together for Christmas. I know to some of you that is going to sound terrible. For us it isn’t.
Here are some of the reasons why:
-we all have our own churches and prefer to attend our own
-we have two nurses in the family and their schedules don’t coordinate
-Lora works at Best Buy and any time before Christmas is out
-some of the kids live two hours away and the weather doesn’t always cooperate
-Buck does snow removal so if there is 1″ of snow, he can’t leave
It was stressful and disappointing. We decided that we’d get together sometime in July instead and call it a family celebration. Well this last Saturday was the July day we picked. Plans were to go out to eat and then just hang out at our house. Someone mentioned taking the grand kids to the fish hatchery first so that’s what we did.
Here’s Auntie Kayla helping Scotty feed the fish.
There are machines that we put a quarter in and then got fish feed. Visitors can feed the fish.
Here is Carver feeding some. The fish jump up and splash to get the food.
Here is Kayla and Spencer.
Here Craig is letting Scotty touch the water in the stream.
We tried to get a Grandma and Papa picture with the grand kids….here’s how it went….
