Flying the Coop

Another one of my little chickadees flew the coop!
(And I thought it was hard when they were all little!)

Cassidy will be living in Provo in Grandpa and Grandma Clark's condo 
with cousin Katie and friend Allyson.

She will have the best of both worlds...

living in the "social mecca" of Provo 
keeping her ASU scholarship by taking her classes online.

 The last of her bags!

 Lots of hugs, kisses and gentle reminders to...
be smart,
stay safe,
call home,
and have fun!

She sent us these pictures after she was all moved in and organized

And most exciting to one particular family member (Bennett),
Cassidy is the newest employee at J Dawgs...
the most happenin' hot dog spot in all the world!

Don't miss us too much, Cass!

Breinholt Cousin Reunion

The 1st Annual Breinholt Cousin Reunion 
was held August 22-24 in Show Low.
Curt's cousin Roy, and wife Kelly, generously opened up their beautiful cabin
and hosted the 60+ family members.

How could you not have fun at a place like this?

 If you got tired of being inside, there was tons to do outside...
Sand volleyball court that stayed lit until the wee morning hours
with some of the most competitive volleyball you would ever want to see!

Toys, toys and more toys!


 A 65 foot high zip line

 Don't you love the shoes?
Chalon is the only person I know that could pull this off on a zip line!

Carson and Jen

Davey and Chuck

Devon and Uncle Frank, 
who was the clear loser in "Strip Ping Pong"!

A wonderful fireside where we reminisced about 
Jerry and Carol,
Grandpa Chuck
Grandma Francis Owens Breinholt

A highlight was seeing the bear that Curt and Roy shot
when they were 15 years old!
We've heard the story many times and it was fun to see it proudly displayed in 
Uncle Lee and Aunt Glenna's cabin.

Some of the awesome people we get to call Family!
 Traci, Brian A., Brian T., Becky, Travis

 Cindy, Aunt Glenna, Celeste

 Stacy, Curt, Aunt Debbie, Krista, Frankie, Todd, Tyson

 Tiffany, Traci, Brian A.

 Todd and Marianne

 Uncle Lee

 Tami and Charisse

 Chalon, Allison, Becky

 Mel and  Grandma Charlene

 Jen, Cindy, JuDene

Me and my love!

The First Generation...the crazies that started it all!
Lee and Glenna, Charlene and Mel, Jackie and Dave, Frank and Debbie

The Second Generation...Breinholt Cousins!
Pretty  remarkable that only 10 of the cousins were missing!

Rumor has it that we will be doing this again next year!
Mark your calendars for August 2014!

Couldn't be more blessed and grateful
to be this boy's Mother!

He was a long anticipated addition to the family....
the first Brown boy after three girls,
the first Clark grandson after 9 granddaughters.

We were madly in love with all 8 lbs and 6 oz of him
his sisters adored him from the first second they saw him!

Clark's Blessing Day
October 1995

Not much has changed...
his sisters still can't get enough of him

and now he has a younger, bigger brother
 that thinks the world of him, too!

Oh BOY, did we have dreams and expectations 
for OUR little guy

He has not disappointed...
the dreams we had for him have paled
in comparison to what he has accomplished
and what he is becoming!

Love this kid more than words can express!

or C-Breezy as some like to call him!
