Sixteen Candles

While we were in Salt Lake celebrating Ty and Whit's wedding, the homecoming of Nate, and having our Ross reunion, a special visitor winged into the Salt Lake Valley. Corbin's best friend from Texas came for a visit just in time to celebrate a special birthday. As in many years past, Corbin celebrated the big One Six at running camp in Duck Creek, and of course Jacob was along for the ride. Since Theo and I were both working for most of the week, we were not up at camp, but we made a special drive up on the evening of Corbin's birthday just to make sure he had cake and a song! Good times!

A Wedding, A Homecoming, and Manual Labor- Ross Reunion 2015!

Every year, my siblings have a Ross Reunion. We each take a turn being in charge, and that person gets to choose the location. We love this tradition as it brings us together and strengthens our family bonds. This year, we had a LOT going on. Between graduations, mission farewells, homecomings, temple trips and life in general, we were not sure we could make a reunion work.

In lieu of our regular reunion, we decided to gather for the wedding of Kim's oldest son, Tyler as well as the homecoming of their youngest son Nate from his mission. During this time, we would still gather and enjoy each other, but with less of a reunion vibe. Ty and his bride, Whitney were married in the Draper temple on the 17th, lovely.

The following day we did a service project at Brad's house in Lindon digging sprinkler trenches. Mostly, we enjoyed being together. Of course on Sunday, we got to hear from Nate as he reported on his mission to Argentina. What a great weekend! The Rosses are the best!
