The plan all along was that we would meet at Amy's, then head to Idaho for our 100 year anniversary and reunion. Adrianus arrived 100 years ago from Holland to purchase the land that the Barendregt family still owns. We had 4 less family members than planned, but we were off. Syd, Ty, Max, and myself made our way in the Excursion.
Pops, Summer, and Zane (sound asleep) were right behind us. Becky, my mom, and Bec's kids were in their YukonXL. 3 cars, lots of bodies, and 4 hotel rooms.
We arrived to lots of warm hugs, friendly faces, and wonderful memories of the Openshaws. There was volleyball on the river,
Art stations (Max did an amazing drawing of the cemetery),
And of course...the human slingshot!!!
We had a great time.
We were able to let go a little and just be goofy!
REALLY goofy!!! Pops needs to explain this one! :P
At about 1:30am on Saturday morning, Zane, Summer, Marni, and I headed off on an all nighter to drive Summer back to SLC to board her plane to India.
She met up with Lindsay curbside.
It was hard to say goodbye for 3 weeks, but I honestly felt nothing but peace. I knew that was where Aunt Amy would have wanted her.
My favorite pic of the reunion....cute Max crossing his legs with a full leg cast. He always keeps me laughing.
