Annual Family Reunion

We celebrated Dad Starr's birthday, and had our annual Family Reunion a few days ago.  Jesse and Ruth and their family came from North Dakota, and we were so glad to get to spend some time with them.  Natalie arrived just in time to get to meet them. 

I usually get the camera out and take tons of pictures all day long, but this year was a little busy, so I didn't get very many.  I thought about it towards the end of the day when things were starting to wind down.

Game time!

Even though it decided to rain, it was a great day spent with family and friends!

Jared, Jonathan, and Jessica stayed the night at our house, and we had a great time!

Kaitlyn has always been rather fond of Jonathan.  Last time they came, she acted shy and would hardly speak to him.  This time, she was little Miss Chatterbox and was more than happy to sit on his lap.

Talon was just sure that the only reason any of them were here was to spend quality, one-on-one time with him.  This was the first time Jessica got to come stay with us, and the kids had a blast with her.  Talon was so happy to have a Wii partner, and Kaitlyn enjoyed sharing her kitchen and dolls.  Jessica was so thoughtful- she surprised the kids and bought all of them cute shirts with her own vacation money. We were all so sad to see them leave, and the kids keep asking when they will be back.  Not soon enough!
