Last week I went home for a most excellent Ellingson gathering. We had great food, awesome weather, and good-quality company! I can't really put into words how nice it was to be home; it was a wonderful trip, and just what I needed before I start school on Tuesday.
Jake, Asher and I stopped by to see Melsie and Sunny on the way to LC.
Beachtime with AsherBoo!

The whole crew...we're only missing four people from the extended family
Our cool tshirts! Thanks to Jean and Erica!
The back of our shirts: a quote from Grandpa after a family outing...where some did not have a good time :)
Bocce ball crew
Some highlights of the reunion include:
-winning at the game Hand and Foot 2 nights in a row
-playing Hand and Foot until 4am, and laughing until I cried...a lot
-watching my brother be a daddy
-listening to Asher tell Jake "Brittney hit me" when I didn't touch him (Asher just didn't want me to be around me anymore)
-eating DELICIOUS meals!!
-watching the ocean with Grandma
I love you guys!
