1st Annual Mitchell Family Reunion

We have been talking about starting an annual Mitchell family reunion for awhile now, but this year was the year to start!  Kacy was in charge, and we all had so much fun!

Most of the adults started the day by going to Mary Poppins at the Capital Theater.  I was sad to miss out on the fun, but we all met up at Kacy's house for dinner.

After filling our bellies, we headed down for a night full of fun at Boondocks.  This was the first time I had ever been to Boondocks, and we were all ready for some fun.

First up was the boats.  I opted to stay out, to watch the babies (and Abbi was too scared.)

I have to admit that although it looked like lots of fun, I was kind of glad not to be wet and cold!!  (Sorry - there are a lot of photos - and I seriously narrowed these down.  It was hilarious to watch everyone!)

If you are one of the lucky (dry) ones watching, you get to stand and laugh at pictures and videos you took of everyone else!

Just a little bit wet!

Then we headed over to the race cars for a few races around the track. So much fun!

Abbi loved playing inside in the kid's area, although she was still mostly scared to go climb in the big play area and go down the slide. After some coaxing from Janell, she warmed up a bit and had a good time. We also went on their 3d ride a time or two, and then decided to head out for a round of mini golf.

Unfortunately, it was dark outside by this point, so all I have are a couple of really bad iPhone pictures. But Abbi and I played with my mom and dad, and had a great time! When we were all done, we all met up and ate some dessert and Kacy had brought all kinds of prizes. It was a success! We all had lots of fun, and can't wait for 2012's family reunion!
