Logan Family Reunion

In july we planed a Logan Family Reunion. The Sad thing was that Jeff got a job offer for Fed Ex Office and it started the end of June, so we had to go without him. My brother Randy did most of the planning. We went somewhere by the NM/AZ boarder to a lake with a cabin that fit all of us. The cabin was beautiful with plenty of space to spread out and keep us comfortable without us driving each other crazy lol.

This was also a pretty big deal because my parents had gotten divorced a couple years back, but they both came so the family could be together. I'm sure it was hard on them, but they didn't show it. It was really good to be back together again. So here are some random pics. Not even close to all the pictures.

This is Hudson (Randy and Caitlin's son). we were playing kick ball and he would only stay on the grass and wouldn't cross the dirt line. So funny. Such a great kid. His middle name is Rambo (Randy's nickname growing up and I think my dad still calls him that). I only use that name because its my favorite.

Mikie, Logan and Robbie. picture speaks all the words I could say.

Randy and Susan at kick ball

We went off roading. Randy, Caitlin, Logan and myself were in Randy's truck. such a great time. First time I have ever done it. Randy let me drive...SO COOL. Then he taught Logan how to drive and he did it for a while. Randy will forever be Logan's favorite uncle.

We also got to go shooting. So much fun. I only brought a couple of guns because I didn't have Jeff to help, ut my brothers brought theirs. Robbie showed people how to use the ones they didn't know how to shoot. We had a shooting competition. Randy or Robbie won I think. Randy got extra style points for the above picture.

The cabin had a porch that was big with a basketball hoop and where we played cornhole. Lukas wasn't suppose to play in the cornhole tournament because he was so young. So I was already paired with Jeff. But Jeff wasn't there, so I could pick another partner. I picked Logan. then a new team was made (a fake team really) of Lukas and myself. The last two teams standing in the tournament was Logan and myself and Lukas and myself. Lukas and myself won!!!!!

On the way home our GPS took us a different way (and I didn't realize). it took us 4 hours to get there and 8 to get back. a Piece of our van was coming off and dragging under the car. It was the undercarriage (I think). Logan and I stopped a bunch of times to tuck it back under, but then it would make its way loose and drag again. We finally had to cut it off and go without it. Finally we found the right freeway and made it home. It was a LONG drive. Plus it was  a thursday and Jeff was coming in Friday  to move that saturday we had a ton to do and I was 4 hours behind.

But the reunion was amazing. I had a blast. So did my kids. the food was amazing...

Story about the food. Randy asked if We would be in charge  of the food. I was assuming that because I am good at deals and cooking for large numbers and because Jeff is an amazing cook, that it would be perfect. Then I found out Jeff couldn't come and I had to cook by myself....ahhhhhh! It worked out great. randy cookied the first night and Robbie and Dad helped me with the pulled pork. Kellsie helped with all the meals and cooked some amazing pumpkin muffins that Melea loved.
