Sproul Family Reunion

It was our year to host or plan to Sproul family reunion. So the idea was to gather in St. George for Thanksgiving and a fun day of games on Friday. We originally thought a picnic would be nice, but the weather was too cold for food and games. So we had some delicious burgers that James and Michael grilled for us and then headed to a nearby park for some games. The park was all decorated for Christmas with a huge tree(which I didn't get a pic of).
First a little tug-o-war
My brother John against all the kids

From the kids side
John won once and the kids won once

Oh yes, a little tug with girls on one side, boys on the other
Teresa is the only granddaughter, so I was helping,
then my dad helped, but we still lost. But it was fun :)

An egg toss - with plastic eggs full of birdseed

Down to 3 teams - Justin and Dylan ended up winning

We borrowed two really fun outdoor games from Ty and Michelle (thanks!)

A Three-legged race

We needed stronger twine
Rick and Justin

Nathan and Braden held it together and won

Here is the whole gang that was there that day. Michael left the night before.
 After the park we piled in the cars and a few of us went to check out a Geo cache.
The sun was going down, it was beautiful .

Here is Justin with the box they found. It was fun!

Nathan got out of the car without his coat, so he got really cold walking to the site.
Jonathan wrapped him in his coat, and by the time we got home, he was out

This isn't from Friday - although we did have a leftover Turkey dinner that night.
This is the spread John made us for Thanksgiving. Yum!
It was a really great weekend. Thanks to all that helped make it so nice! The rest of the Utah Sproul's were up north spending it together, so we weren't all in the same spot, but with family non the less

*Can I just say, I really hate the new format to upload pictures, I'm about ready to ditch blogger - too frustrating*

Great pictures! It was all so fun to watch! wish all of the Evan Sproul Sr. family could have been there, but we will keep trying and be happy with however it manages to turn out! Loved it!

Looks like you guys had fun. On another note, how did you get captions on your pics and is that what's taking so long? I didn't notice anything new or long about blogger.

What a fun family gathering, it is so wonderful to be around family.

Wow, you planned 2 reunions in one year! Talk about your superwoman. This looks so fun!!

Thanks! Jen - the whole uploading is different for me - if I click on the image, you can resize it, reposition it, and add captions. I hate it. Linds - yes two reunions in one year and another next year - and get this - it's for my mother-in-laws family(I'll be done for awhile though)
