We met up with all of Jon's mom's family (the Gretsinger clan) up near Cooley City, Washington last weekend. There were 45 of us and luckily it was on a lake because the temps were over 105! We swam at least two times everyday and in between that we all hid in our cabins near the A/C. Poor Brynne had a double eye infection and this was the relatives' first time seeing her--too bad they will always remember her as looking like a baby Rocky.
The kids had SOOO much fun playing with their second (or is it third?) cousins all day every day. Jonah especially had a great time playing with Sarah, who is ten next week.
After the reunion we ventured on to Spokane to visit Steve and Brooke and their kids Addisyn and Paige. That was a great time as well, seeing where they live and antique shopping with Brooke. I got inspired while there and once we got home I rushed to unpack so I could start painting my kitchen and the tile backsplash (I'll post some pictures soon of the before and after). Hopefully it turns out half as cute as Brooke's kitchen!
