Aird Family Reunion 2013

We had an absolute blast at the Aird family reunion this year. Dan and Amber set the bar pretty high as far as reunions go. All 29 of us went up to park city and rented a cabin for a couple of days (we were only missing one person: Ali's husband Ben who was in Afghanistan).
One day, Amber and Dan had planned a video scavenger hunt. they broke us up into four teams and it was so much fun! we had a list of things to search and take a picture of. it was hilarious to see what all the teams came up with. 

Here we are on our way to the shuttle to head into park city

Dad with Savannah and Will.
kids with "livestock" (I hope that didn't count)

 "Someone" talking on a cell phone.
 posing like a statue
 someone (Jake) in a tree
 "Someone" eating a caramel apple
 Not only did we have a scavenger hunt, Papa and Dan both gave a wonderful devotional for the two nights we were there. (Yes, that's a Christmas tree in the background. The whole cabin was decorated for Christmas. There were plenty of Christmas jokes going around the whole time we were there.)

 Listening intently

It was so fun to plan and execute a surprise baby shower for Amber while we were there. It was difficult because she had something planned for all hours of the day, but while some were playing ping pong, my mom and I sneaked away and decorated Michelle and Robby's room so Amber would be surprised. It was super hard to be sneaky while Amber was asking where I was.
I think my mom and I did pretty well considering the time constraint on disappearing without looking conspicuous.
 One of the best parts of the party was trying to figure out a reason to get Amber into the room to surprise her. I told Michelle to get her there. Michelle made up a lame story about Sarah wetting the bed and needing Amber to come help her clean it up. Nothing like getting a pregnant girl off the couch to help clean up someone's child's pee! Amber was a little upset about it, but she was a good sport when she realized what was actually going on.

The boys playing pool

playing around the world ping pong. I kinda suck at it, but I did beat Robby at regular ping pong so I got an ego boost.

Thanks so much Dan and Amber! I can't wait until next years reunion!

I think we should put you in charge of planning our family reunion.
