Labor Day Weekend!

Sandy was only back in school for a week before we took off yet again. We went to Camp LoMia in Pine, Az for a Stratton Family Reunion with the descendants of my great grandparents on my mom's side of the family over Labor Day Weekend. I must admit it was quite stressful for me since it was pouring rain a lot of the time we were there. It was so muddy and we had to walk through streams of water created by the rain anytime we had to go between the lodge and our cabin. However, Tyson had fun playing in the mud and finding worms and just being outdoors.

The highlight of the reunion for me is always our big family auction. Everyone brings homemade items to put in the auction and then we auction them off and use the money that is made to pay for the reunion and future reunions. Here a few pics of some of the stuff we auctioned off. These were taken before everything was put out.

We had a glow stick dance party one night that was a big hit with all of the kids. Tyson surprised us by being one of the last 2 kids dancing when they shut off the music. 

Tyson got extra brave and went down the zip-line!

We ended up coming home on Sunday instead of staying through to Monday afternoon because Charly wasn't doing very good. So on Monday we went to Fountain Hills to see the Fountain.

Charly enjoyed relaxing on the blanket and Tyson wouldn't leave the park. (Not even to watch the fountain)

And there you have it. Our adventures of Labor Day Weekend! :)
