234th annual Adams Family Cookout

Maybe not really the 234th, but I remember going to it when I was K's size. It used to be so fun. The WHOLE family would go and there were games planned, and a whole days worth of good times and food. Now it's about 1/8th of the family, we go up there in the late afternoon, make some amazing food, chit chat for a bit, and load it up. I represented the Hatch family again this year. Sad. But there were a few familes that had no one to represent. So my mom and I decided to better organize it for next year, and get invites out early so there aren't any excuses and plan fun games, and lots of food. But it was still fun this year. The kids had a blast being out in the woods, and it was great to see a couple of my cousins that I haven't seen since last years cookout.
Here is a pic of the men over the dutch ovens. Dad is the one in the plaid with the hat on top of his head...not on it....on TOP. This is some hot guy downing mom's salsa and chips which was SOO good!
This dude is just awesome. That's all there is to him...Awesomeness. Here he will be demonstrating a dance move that ends with a gun.



Here is my uncle Bob Adams....aka Grizzly adams. He's a cool dude too. I took this picture to demonstrate how serious the Adam's boys are about their meat. Our steaks are the sissy little half pounders on the right. You'll notice that sides of beef that my uncles all put on the other side...a couple per person. They love their cow!
These two had a lot of fun running around with their 3rd cousins, and going on hikes with dad up to the caves. K loved just helping the girls out with the cooking.

B demonstrating how amazing the corn was. Seriously the best corn we've had this season thanks to the Baldwins here in town.
This was yesterday. B pulled up a drawer and decided to make a few phone calls.

That little B just makes me laugh. He is so silly I love his personality. Your kids are so cute and they really enjoy each other.

I love B's little nest in the drawer. If I was small enough, I'd definitely do that. That looks like a fun reunion!

That picture of Boston talking on the phone is the catch of the month! How do you do it? I never seem to have my camera at the right time (except when I got Isaac with the book in his underwear).
