Green Family Reunion

Over the week of the Fourth of July, my extended family had a reunion here in Utah.  My sister Jennifer (the amazing one who watches our kids while we take vacations), my brother Steve and my parents stayed with us for the week.  By brothers Tyler and Matt (both of whom live close by) and their families came over throughout the week, and our entire group went camping up American Fork canyon for a couple of nights.

We had several really fun activities we enjoyed together.  One of these was my first ever escape room experience.  If you haven't tried one of these yet, you should.  Since there were so many of us we had to split into two rooms.  The group I was in broke out of the jailhouse at the O.K. Corral.  What a fun time!

I have a couple of siblings who are big shooting enthusiasts.  We took most of the kids out to a shooting range that Tyler set up to learn about and shoot some rifles and pistols as well as a shotgun. They had tons of fun!  They really enjoyed watching the soda cans explode:)  As you can see from the video below, the AK-47 was a huge hit.

Getting everything set up:

My cute wife!!!

Loving Taylor's longer hair!

Cali did really well with the rifles and the pistols:

Sophi pulled the trigger with her big toe.  She hit several targets:

Xander takes aim

Parker was quite good with the shotgun.  In the video below, you can see the clay pigeon disintegrate at the top of the screen.

Grandpa Green has had this rifle for years.  I remember shooting it as a kid. 

We also had one youngster show up who we couldn't identify 😂:

These were some of the fun things we did.  More pics from the reunion tomorrow:)
