a family gathering just isn't complete without an injury

At the end of May, Tim's parents came up to Utah to attend their grandson, Ethan's, high school graduation.  Tim's sister, Melissa, drove up with them!

It was the first time we were able to meet Melissa's son, Burton, so we were especially excited!  Or "Gus," as about 50% of the family likes to call him.  [Burton Guster?  Psych?  Anyone?  ...Anyone?  ...Bueller?]

Ellie loved to smother poor Burton with hugs and kisses.

Like, all the time.

He totally loved it.  Obviously. 

Cutest little buds.

We spent most of the time at Tim's brother's house, which is about 15 minutes away from Park City.  Naturally, we had to make at least one shopping trip.

Melissa, Tessa, Me, and the babes.

 Three of the four Devey grandbabies born in 2013.  AKA "The Fantastic Four."

 Ellie was born months before these two but is by far the smallest.

 About to go for a walk with everyone.

Cute cousins. 

It would be the perfect post if it just ended there, right?  Cute babies?  Family?  Beautiful scenery?  But noo.  Tim decided he hadn't had enough attention and decided to dislocate his knee again.

I came back from a walk sleep-inducing attempt with Ellie just in time to see Tim's family surrounding him and taking pictures of him lying on the ground.

That puddle around Tim's head looks concerning, doesn't it?  Don't worry, it was just Tim's SIL, Michelle, pouring water on his head. 

Oh, poor Tim.  Luckily, it wasn't nearly as painful as last time, since it automatically popped back into place as he fell.  But.  Let's be honest.  It was still painful.  It was so nice to have Tim's family there to help and give him a blessing.  The combination of far less pain and having family around made me far less panicked, too.

Tim will have surgery next month, and after that, he'll have to find some other way to get attention.  [Total sarcasm, y'all.]

Deveys, we can't wait for you to come back next month!

Ohhh my gosh that is super frustrating about his knee! Poor guy. His knee is not a masterpiece.
