ERA Reunion

We attended a reunion with Zack's parents and siblings minus Krystal's family who are currently residing in Arizona. We headed all the way up to Mantua, Utah, a small town north-east of Brigham city. It was quite the adventure to say the least! There were animals all around, it rained most of the trip (total downpour) and Jed got the stomach flu on the last night we were there!


The kids did get to play with their cousins and adults did get a little visiting in between downpours! We were so glad that we brought our winter coats since it got down into the 30s one of the nights. Zack was able to play horseshoes with the guys.

At one point we were rather frustrated with the rain and found a bowling alley in Brigham City to stay dry for a couple hours. Isaac pretty much beat everyone at bowling.

We came up with a few different ways to try and stay dry but nothing seemed to work. Our shade covers kept leaking, extra tarps fell down and tents were the only escape but kept getting muddy! Eric and Kathy held a little trading post for the kids to buy treats if they earned tickets for helping out around the campsite. The glow sticks were a big hit!

All in all the kids had a great time and we got to visit with family so that was rather successful.
