How I wish I was able to capture more of our Gummersall Family Reunion 2014, but it was a "getting 4 teeth, can't take naps with all these new friends, overly exhausted" kinda weekend for Bennett and my pregnant self, so instead here is an ode to Bennett eating watermelon.
We were able to get super nice three 2 bedroom suites at the Westgate Resort in Park City, UT where we gathered together as a family of 50.. tight squeeze, but wonderful nonetheless. We spent Friday at Jordanelle Lake paddle boarding, jet skiing, and soaking up some lake side games. Saturday was a day spent at Olympic Park which was full of tourists and we got a little lost traveling up some trails with the two babies. Saturday night was our infamous skit night followed by a wonderful family slideshow. Amongst all the chaos and tears shed from Bennett's 4 hour long cry session in which nothing would tame we had a great time.
The slideshow was of pictures of Lance's Grandpa -Aaron Leon- throughout the years with all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. By the end we were all in tears as a few chose to speak about the blessings of forever families. Lance's Grandpa was truly an amazing and wonderful man. He was never afraid to talk to new people and everyone knew where he stood testimony wise. He was such a genuine, hard working man who love his family and remembering him gave the reunion such a real sense of purpose for without him this family wouldn't have existed.
