This past weekend was the Linebaugh family reunion. This is Jakes moms side of the family. Since I have known Jake we have not had a reunion on this side of the family - I was excited to see everyone! Even Jakes cousin Mel, who lives in China, came!! It was great to see her and her husband and their 7 month old baby girl Kate. She is a doll!! We headed up to Schofield UT where Jakes cousin Kalli and her family have a beautiful cabin. It was a great place for a reunion. There was so much to do - boating, crafts (for adults and the kids), scavenger hunts on the 4 wheelers, smores in the fire pit, and just sitting around enjoying everyone's company. It is so much fun to get reacquainted with family members you haven't seen for a long time - and even those who you see all the time! It was so great to get together with the entire family, but did we missed Josh and Becca and their family. Thanks so much to the Huntsman family for letting everyone stay at their cabin and enjoy their toys! Here are a few pictures from the weekend! Kade and Kalli's Cabin Mark, Justin, Dan, and Jackson Jake and Walker in the tractor Cheri, Jill, Mel, Kate and Bowen
This is Jake's cousins little boy, Cassidy.
He is 2 and a pure cowboy - belt buckle and all. He is so cute!!

TOMATOES - only they were in my neighbors hand,not on my plant. So nice of her to "notice" that I have struggled in the vegetable growing area this season - so she thought she would share her tomatoes with me.She brought me over all these tomatoes! She was telling me that her tomatoes have grown like crazy this year (wierd??) and she keeps making tomato basil salad for dinner. Wow - what would that be like to eat fresh tomatoes every night? She is nice to share. She also has these aweseome pumpkins that are called "Cinderella" pumpkins - they grow a really dark orange and are really flat. If she has extra, I hope I get one!! THANKS BARB! Way to look out for your neighbors.
p.s. I have a small cucumber growing - maybe some progress is better than none!

So i had to put a quarter by this tomato so you can see how small it really is!
Here is my pumpkin plant - please notice that the leaves are as big as my fist. When they should look like this... (i took a picture of my neighbors plant) See how big her leaves are - and she already has pumpkins!!
I have even double checked that the sprinklers are hitting it and I hand water to make sure they are getting water!! Anyone have any idea why my garden has issues this year? Maybe it's the heat? I am sure it is nothing I did!! ha ha!

Aren't generation pictures just the best!?! I love them. Jake and I are so grateful that we had the opportunity to get these done right after Walker was born. My grandpa Jack (above) is 92 and still going strong. Unfortunatley Jakes grandpa Laurie (above) passed away on July 29. We are so grateful for the knowledge that we have of eternal families and to know that we can be together forever.
