Stott Family Reunion: Day One

Today, we got up at 5:30 in the morning, piled into the rental car which dad got last night, and then drove to Choteau, Montana. We stopped in Rathdrum for breakfast at McDonald's and picked up an easy cache. In the cache was a necklace that I liked, so I traded some change from buying the food for the necklace. Then, we were on our way again. We stopped again for Subway sandwiches in Missoula and arrived at the hotel at 1:45.

Mom called Aunt Dorothy and she cut both mine and Lydia's hair before we came back to the hotel and got ready. At 4:00, we met everyone at the church and took pictures with Grandma and Grandpa. We ate dinner, which was soup and sandwiches, and then I read while we waited for the actual reception to start.

At the reception, Grandma and Grandpa cut the cake, and then each family did a small presentation type thing. There were musical numbers, a poem, a dancing lesson, slideshows, and even a magic trick. Our family prepared a geocache in Grandma and Grandpa's honor. After the presentations, all the guests left, leaving the family for a dance. However, we left to hide the cache near Grandma's house and now I'm back in the hotel room, writing this blog.

That's it for today.
