Payson Lakes was a most gorgeous setting for a family reunion. There are three small lakes, hiking paths, and several big open areas. We camped here the summer Antonio Navarro came to live with us, in fact, we picked him up from the airport the first day of that Wilcox reunion.
Amy and Autumn take the kiddos for a cruise along the lake.
Chris, Anthony, Autumn, Andrew and their families were all able to come participate, camp, fish, hike and play games.

Andrew's in-laws, Denny and Connie Roberts, came camping too, in their Muffin self-contained mini RV. We celebrated Denny's birthday along with CJ and Logan who were also having birthdays that week. The next night we got to have some homemade ice cream which was made in a specialized ball which we rolled and tossed.
Autumn drove up with her kids and they had a lot of fun playing and camping...even enjoying a hammock.
We visited with Paul, Monte, Lynette, Cindy, Brent, and Nick's families from Keith's family. Nick's oldest son is on a mission in Colorado.
Paul was the family "bread winner" on this reunion and furnished two large bags of delicious breads of all kinds from Kneaders. We even took some home. Their oldest daughter has graduated, and the next one had just had an accident and dislocated her collar bone.

Liz was the only one of Katherine and Harvey's family to come. It was fun hearing about their daughter's mission in France, and getting reacquainted with their other girls.
Katherine and Harvey stayed in the same motel in Payson that we did -- see what pitiful campers we've turned into! We've gotten rid of most of our camping equipment, so motel camping is our preferred modus operandi.
Day 1 we hiked around the west side of the lake.
Water activities were a big part of this reunion. Grandma and Grandpa Wilcox even went rowing on the lake. Andrew and Denny both brought boats, and the kids enjoyed riding in the boat as well as fishing.
Father's Day remembrance for Steve
I need all the help I can get in remembering all family birthdays. Thanks, Amy
How in the heck did we get everything in the trunk? It was tight, but we did it!
