Silverwood 2014

One again we got the privilege of using the kids reading tickets and going to Silverwood.  The kids love it and we endure it.  I dragged Kirt along even though he really didn't want to go.  The only reason I convinced him to come is because our friends the Criddle's were going too.  Our friends live in Montana now and their kids get the reading tickets all the way over there too.  It was fun to see them and catch up.  I had an awful time though.  I just couldn't tolerate the rides.  Usually I love them, but I felt like my brain was rattling around in my head and I got the worst head ache.   
 Tanner convinced Katie to ride the Sky Diver.  It is Tanner's favorite ride, but you have to have 2 people go on it and he has never been able to convince anyone to go with him.

York Family Reunion 2014

We had a York Family Reunion the 14th, 15th and 16th of August.  Grandma and Grandpa York, Connie and Vance and kids and grandkids, Marilyn and Ervin and kids and grandkids, and Rick and Becky.  Everyone was there except Kari and Dave and their kids.  Thursday we floated down the Green River (just the Christensen's), Friday the kids played Mind Craft in the morning and we played at the Remember the Maine Park.  We had dinner and everyone had a fun time catching up.  We played the baby picture game where we guessed whose baby pictures where whose, and a game to see who knew grandma and grandpa York the best (questions and answers at the bottom of this post). Saturday morning we had breakfast at the park.  Then we did family pictures and went for a hike to see some hieroglyphics.  We played some fun Minute to Win it games and had lunch.  The boys went shooting Saturday afternoon.  There was lots of fun game playing in the evenings too.  Sunday we went to church with Vance and Connie.  They got to report their mission in church.  The grandkids sang I am a Child of God for the closing song.  They sang the 1st verse in English and the 2nd verse in Danish.  We headed home after church and stayed the night in Dillion MT.
