Family Reunion

So I'm finally getting around to posting some picture updates from the Tucker Family Reunion. It served as both a Foulk family reunion and a Tucker family reunion for us. It was so much fun to be able to relax and spend some time with family.

We spent the first day at Seven Peaks water park. Alan absolutely loved the water. He didn't like it when I dunked him under, but couldn't seem to get enough of the waterfall in the kiddie area pouring straight down on his head. Go figure. :)

Dad on one of the water slides!

Playing a little speed scrabble...

Family Picture! (minus Geoffrey)

The grandkids!

We had a blast at Snowbird Ski Resort. We took the tram up to the top of the mountain and there were some spectacular views.

Alpine slide!

Rock Climbing!

A couple of cute guys.

All of the girls at Steph's Bridal Shower

Mom and sisters :)

And the little girls had a fun time fixing Steph's hair.

Alan was so excited to be at in-n-out!

Basically we had a really fun time with everyone, and in one month, everyone will be out here again for Steph's wedding. Woohoo!

Well it's been a crazy few weeks around here. I haven't been keeping up to date too well, but I had to go back and document this major milestone. Alan took his first few steps two weeks ago. He was out playing on the balcony, and I walked over to the door to check on him, and he was just walking! It was so funny. He took a few more steps every day and now he is walking everywhere he goes. No doubt he'll be running soon. All this walking has led to more falls though. I swear he has a different bruise every day. Luckily he seems to be falling a little less now. Here are a few pics of the expert.

Before he started walking he would just stand for long periods of time.

"Expecto Patronum!"

Breaking Balloon Records

So this is what we did today on Scott's day off. BYU was trying to break the world record for the biggest water balloon fight ever. The University of Kentucky had previously held the record with 3,902 people and 119,211 balloons. We decided that since we would get free t-shirts and lunch, it would be a win-win situation and we'd give it a go. When we got there, we were pretty impressed at how well organized the whole thing was. They wouldn't let Alan on the field (for obvious reasons) so Scott and I took turns throwing balloons and staying with Alan. It worked out quite nicely since I was outside at the end and was one of the first in line to get food after the fight.

We read tonight that we only ended up beating the record by 25 people and 1,021 balloons. Insane! I have a feeling there were actually more people there, but probably everyone didn't stand in the line to sign a waiver. But luckily enough people did. It was a lot of fun and a great way to spend the holiday. Happy Pioneer Day!

We decided to visit the Boise area last week. Luckily Boise is about half way between Provo and Portland so Grandpa, Grandma, and George Robertson came to help and visit, too!

Alan was really so good on both car rides. When he did get a little upset, we thought taking his picture might help:

When we arrived, we were delighted to find very nice rooms at the Motel 6. Alan's favorite feature was the large mirror near the bed:

While we were there we drove around some neighborhoods, looked at some apartments and just had an overall fun time.

We even got to visit my cousin and her family, who made us a delicious dinner. Baby A got play on a tramp for the first time:

It was a great trip, and from what we've seen so far, we love Boise!
