Farrell Family Reunion 2014

The Farrell family reunion 2014 was in a huge cabin in Mount Shasta, CA. We spent a few days on the lakes around there, did some hiking, drove up Mount Shasta, explored the town, and just generally hung out and enjoyed each other's company. It was SO hot while we were there, and our cabin had no AC - so we were pretty toasty. Jack ended up with heat exhaustion after being outside in the heat. He spent a night in the ER with an IV in his poor little noggin and by the next morning he had perked up. It was our family's first ever ER trip and it was terrifying, especially with a tiny 3-month baby that can't communicate how he's feeling. The rest of the reunion was fun, though we kept Jack inside, naked, with a wet washcloth on his head for the rest of the week just to be safe

Mount Shasta!

Cute long-legged boy.

Nora looks so old in this picture to me.

Enjoying the view.

Cousins doing a rock maze.

The lake had these awesome blow-up floating jungle gym things. So fun!

Farrell siblings jumping off.

Cute babies.

Babies with grandpa - this was about 10 minutes before Jack got super sick. This picture still gives me anxiety.

ER visit.

Wrapped up and grateful for the air conditioning.

Tiny tiny baby in a huge crib.

Feeling much better in the morning.

We went on a drive to visit some of the other beautiful lakes in the area. It was screaming hot - it felt like standing in an oven.

Poor naked Jack stayed in the car (and the air-conditioning) with daddy.

Nora and Ellie - two princess obsessed cousins. :)

Twirling like princesses.

Tapping Batman in the talent show!

Steve and Debbie's sweet moves.

Matt and I played "The Devil Went Down to Georgia"

Our family talent was a glowing stick man dance. SO fun.

Glowstick dance party!

This is what Jack thought of the glowsticks.
