Fam Reunion

This past weekend we got to make a quick trip up to Utah for Owen's family reunion. It was a great opportunity for all of his family to be together at one we were happy to be there too! Owen's mom worked really hard to make it happen and the reunion was a lot of fun. I was so impressed by all of the family history that was collected for the reunion...I hope one day I will be able to take on a project like that. I left with a great message:
Always keep your ancestors memories/stories/recipes/hobbies/testimonies alive! They are amazing people who have done amazing things and should never be forgotten...

All of the girls
love, love, LOVE being in a family of mostly fun!

Fun Fact from the Reunion:
Owen and I share the same great, great, great (maybe another great?) Grandpa: Jesse N. Smith (cousin of Joseph Smith Jr.). I'm pretty sure there's enough greats in there to make us legal though


  1. Hey, Jesse N. Smith is Emily's G.G.G. Grandfather!! that makes Joseph Smith Jr. her first cousin 5 times removed.

  2. Actually it's 2 Greats on her mom's Smith side.
