Day 9: More Family Fun

Always trying to win over the ladies with Auntie Catherine

To wrap up the last day of the reunion Rob hit the golf course to watch some of the guys play while Cooper and I hung back with the rest of the family. After a day of relaxation we headed back to the lake cabin for some barbecue and great conversation on the porch.

Cooper loved playing with Nana, especially when she sang the song about how the ladies, gentlemen and cowboys ride. To wrap up the night and the reunion Cooper took his clothes off…for his first birthday cake experience made by Anna and Catherine.

We ended up making it a late night back at the hotel so that Cooper could have additional time with the family.

Auntie Catherine are you drinking water without giving me a sip first?

After a bath my hair was fluffed and we were friends again 🙂


Day 8: Swimsuit to Dress Clothes

We started out the day at the pool again where Cooper was able to capture the ladies’ attention 🙂

We then headed back to the room for some relaxing family time.

Then we got all gussied up and headed off to dinner at the club house.

Boy how times have changed, hard to believe we spent a lot of the fancy dinner on the floor entertaining Cooper and the other kiddos 🙂

Day 7: Swim Time

Cooper’s first time in a pool

Cooper loved his first time in a pool. He quickly figured out that he could make even bigger splashes then in the bathtub.
