Overton Summer Reunion - Blue Springs

The gang, the herd, the gaggle...
The Overton clan gathered together for a weekend (a week for some) of family fun at Blue Springs Park in Orange City, FL. Can you say hot as the dickens?????!!!!!! Thank goodness for Aunt Barbara's super-soaker fans and the 72 degrees spring. We also celebrated Aunt Dottie's 70th birthday. Yes, that blurry picture below is Aunt Dottie holding a balloon. I must have captured the moment while chasing Caroline.

The kids had a blast with their cousins. They played water balloons, went on bike rides, road a float in the spring, roasted marshmellows, saw while turkeys....

We didn't rough it. We rented a cabin with the kids and enjoyed mornings on our screened in porch while hushing our 6 am alarm clocks(Bowen, Caroline & Davis) so that they would not wake the rest of the park campers:)

It was such a treat to see everyone, especially all of the kids. I just can't believe how fast everyone's children have grown. I wish everyone lived closer!

Birthday Dottie

Keeping Davis cool in the Florida heat. He had a blast splashing in the float filled with water while the older kids used it to fill their water guns.

Funny faces for the camera with cousin Reagan

Babes in the bike trailer

More funny faces. Hey, passing the time with NO electronics! Okay, except for my camera!

Bowen didn't bother putting shorts on when we announced that we could see turkeys outside the cabin. Those turkeys are staring back and saying, "hey, boxer briefs for preschoolers! Cool!"

Our last night at the park. We had a feast followed by cousin Matt passing out glow sticks, then sparkler time, and finally cousin Will helping out with an awesome smores treat.
