Rockin R Ranch-Larsen Family Reunion!!!

Where do I start?!?! This year our Larsen Family Reunion was at the Rockin R Ranch in Antimony Utah! No I hadn't heard about it before either, but we had a blast!!! Brayden, Adelyn and Sophie have been talking about going to the family reunion and "riding horses" for the past year. After a year of talking and getting all excited about it I was hoping that it would really be a cool as we had pumped it up...but it was even better!!!! Grandma Larsen we wanted to thank you so much for making this reunion possible!!! We seriously had the time of our lives!!! You are amazing Grandma!!!

The Rockin R Ranch had everything from Horses, to Bull riding, from archery to tubing down the river, from a zip line to the ice cream/gift shop, from Family to Friends, from animals everywhere to pet and feed to playgrounds to play on, from a Rodeo to the 4th of July Parade, from Fireworks to Basketball, from Country Line Dancing to a concert/dancing, from star gazing to lassoing....The list could seriously go on forever!!

This is the Rasmussen branch of the Larsen Crew... Ammon & Kirsten, Seth & Brandi and Liz we really missed you guys!!! We love you tons!!!
Stew& Emily, we had so much fun when you visited us right before the reunion!! Thanks for staying with us, you guys are awesome and it was fun to be able to spend time together!!! We love you guys!

These pictures were from our family Rodeo... I have video somewhere of LeGrand actually bull riding!! It was awesome!!! That's my man!!!
We were in the 4th of July parade. The kids had fun riding on our Larsen Family Float. It was funny, there were probably almost as many people that were in the parade as there were people watching it..I think we doubled the population on Antimony with all of us there... that's a tiny town for you!
We love you Grandma!! This other picture is Grandpa getting caught feeding Kolby his first spoonful of ice cream....Kolby loved it!!!!
Whitney, Mom, Dad and Paul, this is the Las Vegas crew. (2 weeks after the reunion, Paul left on his mission to Brasil!! We love you Paul!!!)

As you can tell, we had a blast. We spent the 4th of July together and watched fireworks over the was beautiful and the kids had a blast!!! I know I'm partial but aren't they cute?!?!

Wow, the kiddos were in heaven, seriously!!! Brayden especially loved every minute of it! What little boy wouldn't LOVE riding horses, shooting bows and arrows, swimming, getting dirty and dressing up like a cowboy all day!!!

Grandma, We can't thank you enough for getting this reunion together and especially for your love and example. We truly have an amazing family. I know that families can be together forever!! What a wonderful family we have!! Thank you Grandma for everything!!! This was totally unforgetable!!!

What a FUN time you had!! I am still majorly bummed that we didn't get to go but it looked like one amazing time. I think that is the cutest family picture of you guys. I also will forever love that picture of Grandma on the horse! She is such a good sport about everything! We miss you guys!! Love you lots!

Seeing the pic of Bishop with your younger daughter gave me a major flashback! Bishop used to carry Whitney on his shoulders a lot. Another of my favorite pics is you with you and Kolby...with Kolby wearing the cow boy hat. PRECIOUS! Your family is awesome. I'm glad you guys were able to go. Looks like an awesome place too!

Emily Rasmussen said...

It was fun to see your pictures from your camera. I am not sure if we got those ones yet. We love you guys and we had a ton of fun being with you again. It felt like we had never left Utah! Thanks for being such a great sister and friend to me and wonderful aunt to my babies!

WOW! I hope you guys got to spend at least a few days there. I love riding horses, the boys too. I did get your message, thanks! Peyton is jealous of the ice cream Kolby got to try!
