My Dad and his siblings, and their families. This isn't even close to all of us! Yeah, we have a huge huge family. Infact on this trip we learned that the Leavitt family has the most posterity in all of the LDS Church.
Earlier this month, even though I was super duper sick, I drove down to St. George for my family reunion. I figured even though I was feeling horrible, I had to go because St. George is so close to Salt Lake City, and I had family coming from Canada, Alaska, San Diego and many other places that were a lot more of a drive then what I would have to do. I also hadn't seen some of my extended family in forever! Everyone picked St. George because we have a lot of family history there. Which is funny that I ended up marrying someone from there. My great great great grandfather, and his family helped settle St. George Utah. Later he moved to Canada... which is where I was born and where the majority of my family is from. It is funny to think what would have happened if he hadn't moved to Canada. I probably would have been from St. George Utah. Who knows.... I could have met Trevor a lot earlier. We could have gone to the same school, and we probably would have had nothing to do with each other haha. We have talked about what it would have been like if we had ever met in high school. I don't think we would have been very interested in each other then.... but who knows?! Anyways, the reunion was a blast! I saw some family I hadn't seen in years. We did a lot of family history site seeing. It is pretty cool to be in a city that has so much of a connection to you and your family. I am talking houses, statues, the whole works. I get an excitement from doing family history and knowing my genealogy. This could be because I have a fascination with history, but I think it is so important for people to learn about their families and where they come from, and why they are where they are today. I am a firm believer in learning from the past and applying it to our future :)
Get ready for a picture overload post....

These geese were everywhere outside our hotel..... my brothers decided to attack them.
