Family Reunion - Kids & Dogs Edition

A few weeks ago, my dad and Kelly hosted our annual family reunion at The Farm.  We had aunts, uncles, cousins, kids and dogs come in from all over the place.  I was the designated photographer for the weekend and got a lot of cute shots of the kids and dogs (adults too, but they're not as much fun, so I'm not going to post them).  Since I don't have a lot of time to blog today, this is just going to be a photo dump post.  Enjoy the pictures!
This is Raynn.
She belongs to my cousin Bethany is 1 year old. 
She was a newborn at the reunion last year and didn't leave my arms.
This year she was much more interested in Lenny than me.
This is Eva and Sabrina.
They're cousins and best friends.
Completely inseparable.
Except when I pry them apart to get my hugs in.
(Could she be my kid or what?)

The kids (and dogs) love swimming in the pond.
The girls picked wildflowers and brought them all in the pond with them.
The effect was lovely.
This is Gage. 
He's the only boy (so far) carrying on the Holtsman name.
According to his grandpa, he's a duct tape magnet.
Sweet revenge.
Mally was trying her hardest to eat the girls' ice cream. 
And if she couldn't get it directly from the cone, she licked the chocolate off their faces!
Below is Eva's dog Silvie Silversnout. 
Over two days she ate approximately 832 chestnuts, 6 cupcakes, 3 pieces of fish, a plate of strawberries and a breakfast casserole. 
She might have had the best weekend of anyone at the reunion.

This is my cousin Cara's son Carter. 
He also answers to Superman.
But today he was being really shy.
And did NOT want his picture taken.
Raynn, on the other hand, cheesed it up for the camera.
Caitlin is Raynn's big sister.
She's our gorgeous freckly redhead. 
I'd kill for her hair color.
Gage and Grandpa Ron were at it again.
My cousin Mandy has 3 gorgeous boys. 
I can't get over how adorable these kids are!
This is Kannon (aka Kannon Ball).
He's the youngest.
Is this kid going to break hearts or what?
When it was time to say good-bye, things got a little emotional.
Tears were involved. 
It's hard to say goodbye to your best friend.
By the end of the weekend, we were all exhausted.
Even the dogs were FINALLY worn out.
