My brother came into town from china with his family because they bought a home here and stayed for a week and a half. My sister came from utah minus her hubby he had to work but come to find out he had sat sun and monday off he was so sad that he couldnt come, my other sister and brother who live in saint johns also came along with my parents, all 41 of us were together.
we started the family fun off on friday night with the adult dinner. We are the worst people to decide where to eat. first it was joes bbq but not as many people wanted that so we took a vote either olive garden or joes bbq. it was tied 7 wanted joes and 7 wanted olive garden, my mom was the deciding factor and she chose olive garden. so off we went but with such a large party of 15 wasnt going to be that easy to get in fast it was suppose to be like an 1 1/2 wait. we tried calling other places and pretty much was the same we kept going back and forth should we just go to joes. but we figured by the time we got there it would have been the same time for us to get into olive garden. So we finally decided to stay. it was a lot of fun with everyone we sure kept that place a rockin we are always so loud when we are all together.
Next day we had a family bbq at the park by my sister heidis house for jan, feb and march birthdays. we had a scavenger that my mom always does for the kids and then we split up the teams for our annual kickball game. It was the champions vs destroyers we had a so much fun and all the kids had a blast. We played for a long time but we enjoyed every minute of it, but someone always gets hurt when you are having fun, my brother in law bruce slid into home and got his finger caught on home plate and tore his finger nail back and was bleeding a lot but he was ok just some bandages and he was good to go. After that we started the food on the grill and opened presents for those who had a birthday. We had lots of yummy food and ate till we were going to explode or at least i did.
On tuesday we went to Bounce U it is a place where they have slides obstacle courses and fun stuff we had pizza and just had a ball. Colton thought it was pretty fun he kept saying i went to the bounce house. he went down the slides and climbed on the obstacle courses by himself he was so proud. He also got to play air hockey for his first time and he was having a lot of fun with that. mya just crawled around and played with the balls they had there. My 2 brothers got in the boxing ring with these huge gloves on and were pounding each other and were tired after just a few minutes what a bunch of oldies, haha. We just hungout the next few days at his house and let the kids play colton loves playing with the older boys. I love getting to spend time with all of my family we always have such a great time. these are the moments i feel so blessed to have my family! cant wait to the next smith family fun! here are some pictures of the family fun
