'This is The Place' Utah.
This really IS The Place when my family is here.
There isn't a better party out there!
McDonald Family Reunion.
We spent some time in Heber, but this day - we visited the historical site of 'This is The Place'
My family is the best thing on the planet.
Let the Circus begin...
Kate & Parker.
Mom & Dad. Celebrated 35 years this year!
Elijah has become The Center of The Universe in our family.
Only grand-kid, only nephew. He's THE most perfect baby boy. He looks just like Jon when Melissa & I used to tote him around, dress him up, feed him dirt.
He was the baby when we played house.
I only wish there was as little competition around as there was when Jon was 2.
We're all learning to share Eli.
Jon, getting a shave.
I think we were all excited he was gonna get a real shave - and then we found out it was a theatrical show with a butter knife.
And then Bo wanted a piece of the action.
Bo, consistently thinks babies and little kids are 'annoying'. But Eli has been the exception, and I have a hunch....
He told me recently that he was SO happy when Eli was born because, finally he wasn't the youngest in the family.
This is just a random and terrible photo of me (and Elijah) after a workout.
I am not one of those girls that looks cute at the gym. ugh.
Ty & Parker playing Chess. Parker... always competitive.
I think Ty might actually have surprised Park... they both love a good run-for-their-money.
Who is winning in this moment??
Parker is about as cool as it gets, according to the boys.
Ahhhhh... Cake Pops.
Katie and i decided we needed to make Cake Pops. They sort of inadvertently became the eye of our hurricane weekend.
So typical of my sisters and I.
Emily: Katie, we left the cake pop stuff at the cabin! Should we turn around!?
Katie: Ahhhh... screw it.
(That's for you Kate)
They looked nothing like the ones we saw at Starbucks and Nordstrom... surprised?
And then I guess we all decided to try to force Eli to eat them.... I didn't realize until I looked at the photos. Ha!
These are the days.
