Webb Family Reunion

This year for the Webb Family Reunion we went to Zion's National Park. Although we had a quiet a few kids in tow, we still managed to do some fun hikes. This is Grandma pushing Ainslie on the River Walk Trail.

Jed and Amanda won the award for best baby hiking gear. Even though we gave them all a hard time for how much space it took up, it came in really handy. Thanks for sharing guys.
After the rest of us were worn out from the River Walk; Jordan, Alyssa, Jed and Amanda continued hiking up the first part of the Narrows Trail.
We stayed at this classic motel in Mt. Carmel Junction. It turned out to be rather nice, and it was so fun to be together. Thanks Mom and Dad for picking this great spot.
The swimming pool was esspecially a big hit.

Happy Fourth!

Our Fourth of July started with a trip down to Provo for a picnic not too far from the Freedom Festival. It was lots of fun to catch up with Jordan and Alissa, and Jed and Amanda, since we don't get to see them very often. Ainslie enjoyed the picnic, but it was pretty much torture for her to be that close to the pool without being able to go swim. She was bound and determined to get in, even if it meant she had to climb the fence. After a sno-cone and an interview for some infomercial thing, we headed down to Spanish Fork where Ainslie worked up a little masterpiece. She also had fun stomping on some snappers.
Ainslie also spent some time getting to know Jordan and Alissa's new dog, Tucker. And we picked a cherry or two before we took off for a nap in the car. We spent the evening at a barbecue in Lehi with some of Josh's family. The food was great, and Ainslie had a lot of fun playing on the tramp, as usual.
We all enjoyed some deliciously patriotic cupcakes,

and at the end of the evening, Ainslie was looking smashing in a pair of new sunglasses.
This Fourth, we were also happy to see Major League Baseball's efforts to raise awareness about ALS. One of Josh's favorite professors, Michael Goldsmith, first proposed the idea last year, and since then the MLB has been working to make it happen. You can read more about his efforts and success here, here, and here.
We wish Professor Goldsmith all of the very, very best in his efforts to fight this disease. He is a truly great example of how to live a "can do" life.
