Cottle Family Reunion (Meadow Lake 2010)

This year we had such a fun reunion with my dad's side of the family. We met up at Meadow Lake in Columbia Falls MT. We stayed in some condos for the week and had such a fun time together.  We swam everyday, played golf, had a talent show, went to a play, ate lots of good food, stayed up late playing games, and of course had fun getting to see each other again. It had been 5 years for me, so it was so fun to see everyone all grown up! Can't wait for the next one.
Here is Matthew playing with my cousin holly.  Everynight after dinner, he and his cousing would make it a game and attack her, it would go on for  at least an hour, but they loved it.

Here we are at Flat Head Lake lake.  It was a lot of fun, but a little cold since it was glacier water. The kids had a great time swimming and playing in the sand

And we had a good time just sitting and talking, and of course eating

This day we headed up to to the slide. The kids had a blast!!

I love this picture of my Grandpa

This day we headed over to the maze and played some mini golf, got lost in the maze, rode on the go karts, and got soaked in the bumper boats

Brandons 4th Birthday was a sucess!  We ended up having 2 parties on here in Bayfiled with his cousins and family from Jeff's side, and then 1 in Montana with my side of the family. My dad made balloons for all of the kids, we had a pinata, and more cake and candy. It was so much fun to be with all of our families to help B celebrate his birthday.
