HMA Family Reunion Goodness

We had a family reunion over the 4th of July weekend. To me there is nothing better than when my extended family gets together. We laugh and exhibit and all around have a great time.

My Aunt Candy is a genius with cardboard. For our first event on Friday afternoon she recreated the town she and he brothers (my Dad included) grew up in.

Miss Canyon hanging out at Grandpa and Grandma's Blythe house.

Where else but the Arnett reunion can you "milk" a cardboard cow?!?

We roped and branded.

We went to Benefields for fritos and pop....

And hung out where Grandma taught school

That night we reconvened and had some delicious dinner followed by our SYTYCD numbers.

H.B. started us off right with some sweet James Brown moves.

Canyon, Aaron, Myself and Aussie held it down straight street with some old school moves.
Canyon was clearly the MVP.

Larry's family killed it "Thriller" style

By land or sea Arnett's have talent. The Jeff Arnett fam brought it with a synchronized swim routine.

The Walker family kept it classy. Really, when is a man in a unitard not funny?!?!

The best part for me was just being around all my cousins and their kids.

Wendy and I got to reminisce about the good old days.

And it was so good to see Boggs.

All in all I'd say it was a most heavenly weekend!

I'd like to see the dances posted on YouTube. Love those Arnetts.
