West Family Reunion 2011

We almost did it! For the first time ever we had ALL of the grand kids together...under one roof! We all met at the West's in Las Vegas for the MS bike event to celebrate my mom riding of course, and Tim at his new job as director heading up the new MS center/clinic at the Lou Ruvo Center. We almost had everybody in attendance, but Linds wasn't able to make it after all.

We had a fabulous weekend! Coco (my rockin sister in law), and Jay and Debbie Johnson (childhood friends of ours) also came for the event. It was so family gathering ever in my book. Here is a quick recap:

First plane ride as a family of 5. (I think Cameron had a harder time than I did...if only he didn't move his arm once the baby had fallen asleep.) Ask us about is Dylan was terrified after watching his cousins play a video game apparently of "bad guys" hijacking a plane and shooting it up. Great! Notice the hand holding (what you don't see are the tears welling up in his eyes). Poor kid.

We made it! First things first, Dylan had to take out his body book (and every single foldout included) and show his cousins.
Next on the agenda was the headstand competition: Ouch!
Audrey is HUGE! How is my kid the shortest boy in the family We went to the Springs Preserve which was awesome. Who knew Vegas had such a neat place
for kids? it felt like a Childrens museum...only bigger!

Macey Latched onto Cameron pretty quick once we arrived in Vegas. She doesn't see him a whole lot since he works so much, so she took advantage of his time off, and I LIKED it. Look here how she is holding onto him. so sweet...I don't think she left his side all weekend.

"The Scoop On Poop" If there ever was an exhibit made for little boys...this is it! Dylan still talks about the dung beetles and the giant elephant poop.

Sydney found these statues and immediately ran to go hold the hand of this man. Could her heart be any sweeter?

Macey and Me.

The West kids bought my kids welcome presents...
could these glow in the dark masks
be any cooler?

Lots more to come...I will continue to update this as I find time. Sorry the format is strange...i am not sure why it is doing this! UGH!
