Game On





These pictures totally make me laugh! A few weeks ago Rick (my bro in-law)and our cousin Jerom came to visit from Texas. We had a great time with the two of them. Spent a day skiing/snowboarding. Had a big Sunday dinner and played games. And then, on the night before they left, we all got together for pizza and basketball. I actually had to be talked into going, but I was so glad. It was fun for young and old alike! I didn't end up playing but had a great time behind the camera.

I always love finding activities that everyone can enjoy together. Of course the teenagers balled their dads. (sorry hunny! but lets's face it, you're just not jumping as high as you used to. Ü) And the little ones didn't think they got passed the ball enough. But all in all everyone ended up tired and sweaty with a smile on their face. What fun!

Like others, I wondering how you did that?? So cool!

Hey, I see some foul play going on in those pictures... I don't think you are allowed to hug your opponent while playing basketball! Smile!

You need to get your Texas family into blogging. It would be fun to see what they are up to!

What great pictures! Those are my favorites...pictures of random happy moments. I love those more than the ones that document big events...

Looks like everyone was having a "BALL"! I especially like the grandparent photos. Priceless. I too want to know how you did this slide show.

Hey everyone! I can't take any credit for the slide show. All you need to do is click on Create Your Own and then follow the directions. There you go. Trust me if it were hard I couldn't do it. The music is separate. I just downloaded that song to my playlist. I actually got the idea off of Danielle's blog. (thanks danielle)

Marie said...

Great pictures of what looks like a really fun time!

i have to also say that i was so psyched when i heard "the final countdown" on your playlist. i am SO adding it to mine. have you ever watched the show, arrested development? this is the song gob uses in his magic show:) love it-that show is a riot. its one of our faves.

I love moments like this. We recently went to an Elder's Quorum activity where they were playing dodge ball. I thought it sounded silly but everyone really got into it and had a blast.

Hey Lynell, thanks for commenting on my blog. It is so fun to connect with other Moms. Your family is gorgeous and I am excited to come and visit and get some good advice. I also love your You go Girl! I need to get in gear myself.
