Mortimer Family Reunion

Larin...the next American Idol!

The Chicken dance courtesy of Amber, Emilee and Keisha

Stand-up comedy...good thing there were no tomatoes to throw!

Violin duet by Emilee and Sharee...they sounded great!

Background singers...apparently not doing their job.

Delon always likes to have the mic in his hand...just like the remote.

Jake's funny face

I think Delon enjoyed being on stage...

Yes, that's Larin fully clothed...Larin, Larin.

How'd that feel? Little cold?

Jake and Gracie braved the freezing water...I preferred to watch.

Rock Creek Girls Camp in Ashton, ID was the location. Beautiful place... unfortunately the weekend we went it was also wet and chilly. And you can't forget about the mosquitos...we still have evidence of the mosquitos at our house 2 1/2 weeks later. But everything pretty much went off without a hitch. There was good conversation, great s'mores and wonderful family. I often dread family reunions because of all the work it entails, but I know in the end it's worth the memories and relationships. Delon's sister Sharee and her husband Kary were in charge this year and did a great job. I do have to say other than the amateur hour of entertainment, I loved watching those brave enough, swim in water that probably hit a toasty 45 - 50 degrees. Oh the things we do when we're surrounded by betting family members and constant dares! We had a great time and I'm so grateful that my kids love to be with their cousins! 'Till next year!

I didn't know Emilee played the violin...tell her I did too! and to keep it up, it's a hard instrument, but lots of fun when you get good!
