Harry Potter Day at the Reunion

One of the highlights of this years reunion was the Harry Potter day that Heather and Jeremy organized. The kids had the goblet of fire, a quiditch tournament, potions class, real dementors, wand making class, and divinations class.

Loren and Joe were the dementors.

Jef, Joe, and Jer were the bludgers. Mishonne got clothes lined by Logan in the first few seconds. She went back in the game rearing and ready to win.

the Pirate festival

The kids got to see Mermaids and pirates at the festival. I even got chosen to volunteer for the magic show. I about peed my pants when I realized it was for the head chopping guillotine act.

Large Reptiles

Grandma Marks neighbor came out with his Komono Dragon and asked if the kids would like to hold it. All but Aliyah were willing participants.

Visits with Great Grandmas

Great Grandma Marks made us fried chicken while we were in Brookings. Yum Yum.
We stopped in Ellensberg to visit Grandma Pat. We had a nice luch with her. I am sure she misses Grandpa Rich.

Lucian and Aria's Birthday Pics

I had so much fun taking Lucian and Aria's birthday pictures. I took them while Nicole was at work. Aria fussed alot and Lucian would not hold still so it was a challenge.

Marks Family Reunion 2011

The zip line, ping pong, tether ball, and the river are a few of the exciting things to do at the reunion.

The cousins wait all year for the family reunion so they can catch up from the past year. They get to run free at Camp Lane.
