12 inches to be exact!
4 years ago, i cut off 7 inches to donate and i have been growing out my hair ever since with the intent to donate it again! and i did it!
my friend Ashlee is in hair school and she cut it for me! did you know when you donate your hair you get a free hair cut?! :) love it! and love the cut! it's short, and it's going to take some time for me to get used to looking in the mirror but i love it!
so far, reactions from others have been positive- i've heard "cute hair", "best haircut on you ever", and "you look sassy"! there's always the "You cut your hair" comment first! it's a drastic change but

Weber Family Reunion

The first weekend in July was the Weber Family Reunion!
The only way to describe what those three words means, are to tell you this- my mom is a Weber. She is the oldest of 9 children- Joann, Lee, Sandra, Gary, Steve, Dan, Karen, Bruce and Linda. Multiply those 9 kids by an average of 5 children and you get a whole lot of people! This reunion was the first time in a long time that we have had EVERYONE (except one) together. There were 61 people at this reunion! and that's just our immediate family!
Here's a recap of the festivities!
Brenen and Dallan at the Middleton fireworks

Garrett and I at the fireworks!

Taylor and Courtnie

This is the Webers- there are many of us and we eat...all the time! that's the essence of Weber!

The older cousins- Tyler, Taylor, Alesha, Brianne & Erika

Me- cliff falling! I jumped twice! the first time i just went for it, the second time i freaked myself out! but it was way fun! but scary! i'm impressed with myself for actually jumping!

we stayed at an old college in middle of nowhere Albion, Idaho! the place is now called Campus Grove. when we drove in, the buildings were boarded up and we were worried, but it turned out to be beautiful! (i recommend it for anyone having a family reunion)! Every family got their own room, there was a huge kitchen and dining area, a game room in the upper loft, a pool, hot tub, horseshoes, volleyball, and tons of grass to keep 61 people very happy!

Webers at the campfire! the building in the back is the one we stayed in!

The Olsen siblings!

The whole gang- minus Lee and Tysen!

the kids loved this water slide! the older kids didn't because it hurt when you hit the botttom!

the pool was FREEZING! but we braved the cold anyways!
time out from swimming...
Emma gave me a manicure and pedicure! This little 4 year old is a doll, and my best little friend! she painted my nails, cuticles and surrounding fingertips a beautiful lilac purple! she was so focused on her work, it was so cute! i love Emma lou!
my mom and i organized a Weber family Minute to Win It Night! like the TV show! We had so many fun games i can't even name them all! Here Dalan is trying to get a cookie from his forehead to his mouth! So funny!

Brenen, Grandpa, Linda and Bruce are trying to knock down waterbottles with baseballs in the nylons on their heads! Grandpa just started knocking them over with his feet ;)

Alesha, Taylor, Brianne, Brad, and Tyler

on our way home, we stopped at City of Rocks and picniced and rock climbed!

My Family!
Brenen, Taylor, Me, Dad, Mom, Dallan and Garrett

that's just a taste of the Reunion of all reunions! We had a great time, great food, great family! it was so wonderful to be with the whole Weber family! it was great to see all the cousins and all the aunts and uncles! i love my family!
