Beckstrand Family Reunion
We unfortunately missed the Beckstrand Family Reunion because we were in Lehi but we did get to see Debra and her family before
they left. There is never a reunion without a puzzle or 10. Something the Beckstrands excel at to the point that it becomes a competition. I remember one year Brian and Jennifer doing the same puzzle and being timed to see who could do it the fastest.
Here is a picture of the little kids playing Nertz. And of course we had to get a picture of the big kids but it wasn't the same without Daniel in it. They figured out that they won't be back together until the summer of 2013 right after Jacob gets home from his mission and just before Jaden and Austin leave.
My little boys like to wrestle with Bryce and all of the kids, big and small, LOVE to do thumb wars with Uncle Pat. So even though we weren't able to spend a lot of time with them it was good to get together for a day to see everyone. We did go to a Road Runner baseball game with Austin and he came over and watched movies one night because he and Shayne are close in age and Shayne has cute friends. But it was fun to see all of the Johnson's. We hope to be able to schedule things better next year and get to spend more time with them.
We'd love to see Stephen and Katie more often but North Carolina is not a couple hours away. We only get to Lehi twice a year and it's only 3 1/2 hours. We give them our love and get to keep updated by Katie's blog : http://thebeckstrands.blogspot.com/ Check it out if you can. It's super cute. Katie does a great job!
