Family Reunion

Last weekend we had our Thornton/Clausen Family reunion. Aunt Kathy came and we all got together for a weekend of endless fun and games. Even though we all live here we don't get to see each other often. Let's be honest..........never! Sad but true. I think we have changed the way we see things and hopefully can make this a yearly event. I would love it!!!!
Some of the fun things we did were:

Friday night was at Cafe Rio.
We ate and talked until they closed the doors. It was great to catch up on what everyone was doing these days. Julie and Rachelle ran a marathon!! WOW!!! That was fun to hear about.
Here are some pictures:



Saturday was a picnic in the park with some Family Olympics.
Too bad it was the hottest day of the year - 99 - but it was a fun filled day that I think everyone enjoyed. We had the 3 legged foot race, horse shoes, paper airplane contest, rocket launching, water balloon launching, food, homemade root beer and much more.


You can see all the pictures here on smugmug.
Also that picture of us and the root beer below.......................that was from the reunion and Matt helped re-create it by bringing the root beer and making the pictures look so awesome!
Fun times! Next year, lets have the reunion in the beginning of April to avoid the heat!
Also........if any of you have some good pictures, please send them my way and I'll post them so Lisa and Jason can see them! Missed you Lisa and Jason.
