Tom and I spent the last few days at a family reunion with his side of the family. We are now totally exhausted from hikes, children, and heat, but we really had a great time. This is the first time that Tom and I have been around his entire family since our wedding and I enjoyed interacting with them and feeling as if I am a part of their family. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family-in-law and so many cute nieces and nephews. Since Tom is the youngest and I am the oldest, our families have very different dynamics. I am really looking forward to my siblings growing up and getting married, but since I still have a 12-year old sister that will probably be a few years.
Tom's parents rented a cabin in Crestline (near San Bernadino) where Tom's sister lives and we all met up on Wednesday. We chatted, went to the beach, went hiking, and played many hours of Wii games. Here are a few pictures from the weekend. We didn't take very many because Tom gave up and started taking pictures with his mom's (much more portable) camera. We might add more photos when we get those from her. The rest of the photos we took can be seen here.
