7.3-day 4 evening

We arrived in Moses Lake in the evening. Although it was still daylight outside.
We stayed with James' second cousins.
There were 1,2,3,4,5 houses
that every one at the reunion split up against.
We lucked out in a king size bed!

Have I mentioned this was a family reunion? James grandparents are getting older and all their children {they had 10 kids} wanted to get everyone together for a reunion over the 4th of July. This was my first time meeting some of the aunts and uncles and many of the cousins. Unfortuanatly, some couldn't make it. But they were still remembered.

It was amazing. I feel so blessed to be apart of this new family! More on that later.

But first...
After we arrived we unloaded all our things and went over to one of the other houses to say hi.
James reunited with a cousin who now has two beautiful girls. We walked around the farm for a little bit and as the sun was going down I took some pictures of the surroundings.
"James took this picture"

We ended up doing family fireworks that evening.
They are legal in Washington.

It was fun seeing the boys run back and forth setting off the endless kinds of fireworks.

We really wanted to try to do the sparklers/camera shutter trick. James orchestrated the whole thing. All the cousins did so well. It was a lot of fun and turned out amazing!


  1. Melissa, you have quite a knack for photography. I enjoyed all your photos.

  2. Amazing!!!!!! (also, if James is not wanting to homeschool, remind him we went to the same high school, and does he really want to send your precious babies to a place like that? :) )
