BEHIND THE SCENES

Most everything about the Brown Reunion this year revolved around Austin and Tikla's Wedding...but a lot was sure going on behind the scenes as well. We cousins had all sorts of fun!

We spent quite a bit of time setting up and decorating for the reception . Here, Tara wires origami flowers to branches.


After a time, we gathered at a nearby park. A mini Olympics were held with events in Frisbee throwing, sprints, and three-legged races.

After dinner at the church, David (newest RM of the family) gave a great Family Home Evening lesson about the Book of Mormon. Above is an object lesson illustrating that the BOM as the "keystone" of our religion. (The chairs got pulled further and further away from Karsten in the middle until the girls standing on them could not let go of Karsten without falling down.)

Then Paul and Lisa put on a supa' fun family version of "What's My Line?"

Whose underwear dropped out of their locker in front of cute classmates of the opposite sex?
Heather, Me, or David??
.
Most definitely Heather. She has a gift for such things. =)

The next day, Tikla became a Fife.




Aimee and her little men: Miles and Ethan




Jaiden wants to help pat Miles too!




Killing time between the wedding and the reception:
We kept to tradition. The cousins played lots of games...and I laughed til my sides hurt.


Davin and his nephew Samuel



We were pleased to come across an empty high council room. It was perfect for rousing games of Psychiatrist, What If?, and Mafia.
