Camping with the Mamas

Jon & I took the kids up to Washington last week for a mini-reunion of old college friends. While I never actually paid rent at Brooke and Dorina's, they probably should have started charging me as I was over there nearly everyday for two years. We had so much fun and since none of us live in the same city it was great to catch up and let the kids get to know one another as well.

L-R Back Row: Jon, Paige, Addysen, Brynne, Ava, Micah, Dorina
Front Row: Jonah (the non-smiler), Steve, Brooke, Elisabeth w/ Abram, Alysha, Morgan, and Janessa
(Phew--say that ten times fast)

This group was really out of control. No alcohol required.

Brooke became famous with the kiddos for her stories about a girl named "Jizzy" who had some very interesting siblings...
