Memorial Weekend

Memorial weekend was filled with lots of stuff! We again spent the weekend up in Midway at Zermatt with McKay's family. We enjoyed the perfect weather along with eating good food, swimming in the pool, shopping at the favorite Everything in the Barn boutique and riding in Thomas he Train.

Enjoying the sun and crawling around in the grass at Zermatt

He loved putting his feet in the water.
He liked finding rocks in the creek. This seems a bit to familiar. Sammy?
Touching the animals

It was a little cold for Dax so we hung out on the side some of the time.

Sage was a little fishy dunking her head and everything. This girl is going to be a great swimmer

Smiling through the shivering

Being thrown back and forth would take his breath away but when we would stop he wanted more

Fisher was practicing his swimming techniques the whole time.

Looking out the window before we started looking at all the people. (there were sooo many people there)

Grand kids sitting on Go Go and Grandpa's lap

Dax was excited like this basically the whole time. It was so cute watching him squeal and flap his arms around.

I love this picture! He loves his aunt Maren.

Brandon and Maren enjoying the ride.

So sweet.

On Memorial Day we got together with the whole Robinson family at Magleby's for breakfast, then went to the cemetery to visit his grave. After we went to Max's house and picked out some remembrance items to always remind us of him. Later that afternoon the guys had a Max Memorial golf tournament in his honor and had the privilege to wear one of his old hats. There were lot and lots of hats to choose from. Some of them were very.......unique :)

Here we have most of the grand kids and great grand kids    

Hunter and Daxton

We also had the opportunity for Daxton and Hunter to finally meet. Hunter is McKay's cousins son. They were born about a week apart and live in Reno, NV. They were here for the weekend so we had them over for breakfast and let the kiddos play. Thanks to Nick and Serina for stopping by and a big thanks to Hunter for being such a cutie and showing us all the baby proofing we had to look forward to. (which we have now had to do)
Although they are so close in age they were pretty different. Hunter is a busy busy boy! Crawling climbing and pulling himself up.......and Dax watched him :)
Here we have Dax being very vocal as always.

I wish we lived closer to them because it was so fun having another play buddy so close in age.
Memorial weekend was so much fun and kept us very busy.  In addition to the above mentioned activities, we were able to visit grandma Munson in Summerfield and visit the Stika family grave sites.  It was so fun to hear Nana and Papa Stika tell us about their ancestors and share with us fun facts and stories about each one.  We are truly grateful for the sacrifices our ancestors made to pave the way to our current happiness.  We enjoy spending time with our families, and we love them so much.
