Jackson Family Reunion - Aug 29th and 30th

As many members of the the Newel Jackson famlily that could attend went to "The Ranch" in Clay Springs to attend a family reunion. We had a wonderful time! Thank you Uncle Dennis and Aunt Iona of all of your hard work in preparing the facilities and taking care of the food, etc. It was wonderful to see all of the family again and see all of the new babies. We had a blast setting off hydrogen rockets, playing kick ball, target shooting, having a slip n' slide and having the family auction to raise money for future reunions.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures. At the bottom of he post is a link to a web album with a bunch more photos.

Kids having fun on the slip n' slide. Yes, Konnor is the with his hands in his pants.

Always a cute smile!

Konnor loved playing with this ball. Too bad it popped during the family kick ball game.

Callista and Kaitlyn taking a break from the slip n' slide to smile for the camera.

Too tired to fight the sand man any more

Now there is an awesome veteran

Too cute for his own good

Tim and Makenna. Not the most flattering shot, but it was all we had of Tim since he was the one behind the camera most of the time.

On July 26th we had our 10 year class reunion. We volunteered to help put it together. It ended up taking a bunch of time to contact everyone, send invitations, plan a family luncheon and adult dinner and make them happen. We had a great time connecting again. 10 years!

Makenna was blessed on July 13th. After the blessing we went out on the grass to take a few pictures. You will notice that the kids are not too excited to be there. In one shot, all three of our kids are screaming and you will notice in the other shot, Kaitlyn's head is being forced to face the camera. She later came around and took some cute shots with her little sister.
