Sandberg Reunion- Friday Night Bonfire and Saturday Playtime

The Rex Sandberg family reunion was two weeks ago at the Sandberg Ranch.  We had a record 92 people attend, although we were still missing about 30 people. This year though there were quite a few cousins who were able to make it who hadn't come for the past few years.

Friday night was the usual hot dog roast and campfire songs. It's fun to see all the cousins' kids playing together like we used to play together as kids.

Saturday morning some people worked on the service project, putting a new porch on the bathhouse, while others did crafts and got the horseshoe tournament started (and some did all three). 

Micah was still trying to figure out the playground equipment and fell off the carousal (is that what those things are called??)

My dad competes in the horseshoe competition.

More cousins kids playing around. We are so lucky to have the Ranch where we have plenty of room to play! A few years ago the heirs (my grandpa's siblings children) almost sold it, but they ended up agreeing to sell it to my Dad and all his siblings, so now its in our family to stay. 

I love how happy they all look. Hanging out and having fun with family, that's what a family reunion is all about.

Llamas in the background.

Room for a baseball game in the background, kids playing on the playground in the front, and right next to that the horseshoe tournament.

I looked up and saw Katrina coming down the hill with all her kids (minus the baby). There goes Bret in the lower right hand corner to help her out. The kids weren't expecting such a steep hill when they said they wanted to go that way on their hike and didn't want to let go of their mom.

Horseshoes, playground, baseball, and a lot of open space.
