Spokane Trip: July 7th BBQ

Ok, so admittedly I have gotten to the point where we are so far behind on the summer blog posts that it is daunting just to try and begin to catch up, but as I want to keep a record, here goes nothing!

The week of July 7th through the 13th my sister Charlie and her two children were visiting in Spokane while my brother in law got things finalized to move with the Coast Guard from Alaska to Michigan.  We don't get to see her and her family much, so everyone met up in Spokane to spend the week there.  The first thing we did was have a family barbecue on my Mom's side Saturday evening.  Here are the highlight pictures from the gathering.

This is my sister Charlie with her two children, Kirsten and Nathan, and our Grandfather.
My two nephews Wyatt and Nathan.
The four of us sisters.  Awesome that we all accidentally dressed in black and white.  And don't judge how I look, I was trying not to melt...
My sister, Jennifer, her son, Wyatt, and Wyatt's dad, Dan.
My Mom and her Father.
This picture is funny to me because if you look closely Ellie is sucking on her tongue (a tired indicator for her) even while she plays.  The girl was BEAT.
All of the cousins that were there for the barbecue.  Pretty good considering we were only missing two.

It was great to see so much of the family for the first time in a while, despite the heat.  Hopefully we can see them more often than once every few years!
