This weekend Ryan and I went to Utah for the Brockbank Family reunion. We haven’t had a reunion like this for six years and I am so glad we didn’t miss it. Ryan and I weren’t planning until the day before to have all of us go out for it – but when I heard that pretty much everyone was going to make the effort to come, we just decided to make it happen. What a fine group of individuals. We had so much fun catching up with all of you!
Growing up I had a really close relationship with my cousins – since I was a little girl we would always do a week in Lake Powell and all of the cousins would come. As we got older it became every other year, but a walk down memory lane is incomplete without thinking about all the fun and crazy moments with our Brockbank cousins in Lake Powell.
Unlce Gordo with Jane! So great to meet all of my cousins’ kids for the first time. We sure missed you Christine, I was so hoping to meet Sage!
Matthew is incredibly fast and athletic. The whole day he kept getting challenged by all the older cousins to race: swimming, sprinting, a left handed foot ball throwing contest. There is a lot of testosterone!
Jesse Wood is an arborist, and such a sweetheart. Gordo, Jess is amazing!! We all just love her.
I don’t mean to be obnoxious but I have the most inspiring cousins. Abby has four kids, and cycles 200 miles a week, her husband is a dentist and is seriously the most positive person I know. Keri: has a set of twins, a baby and is the most incredible runner/athlete that I know she’s always competing in some marathon or Iron man event, and when I say ‘competing’ I’m serious. She’s actually won a marathon before, amazing. I could go on and on about my extended family, it was such a treat to see them. They are so genuine, positive, and down to earth. I’m so glad Ryan got to know them better.
Thanks for the iphone shot Tanner! Left handed throwing contest at the park. They also had a 50 yard sprint. Wow, my husband was way faster than I expected. Matthew took it!
