Holden Family Reunion

My mom's two brothers and their families flew in from Canada over Father's day weekend to have a little reunion and see my cousin, Jacob, return from his mission in Cambodia.  It was a fun-filled weekend and I didn't take near enough pictures, but I tried. :)

Derek (my nephew) wearing Matt's sunglasses on our way to dinner on Friday night. 

Derek and uncle Matt - he kept grabing Matt's face and saying, "You're funny!"  They are little buddies.

Jacob came home on Sunday and if you would like to see pictures of that you'll have to click here.

On Sunday we went to Jacob's "homecoming" to hear him speak.  He did an amazing job and we are so proud of him.  It was so amazing to hear all the stories he had to share about his time in Cambodia.  I can't believe I didn't even get any pictures of him - slacker.  But, we also took family pictures on Sunday so I'll post those as soon as we get them back. :)

Grandma Holden reading her scriptures after church.  She is why we are all here and she is such a great example.

My aunt Brenley put out quite the spread for the open house they had after church.  She is an amazing cook.

Kelly - Cousin, and her sister Heather

Matt and Dad partaking of the delicious food.  Matt wanted to make sure we knew it.

Cute McKenna - Cousin, look at those gorgeous eyes!

Brenley created a slide show of pictures from Jacob's mission with music.  We all squished on the couch to watch it after dinner. 
We really enjoyed spending time with everyone and when we get the family pictures back I'll try to post those as well. :)
