I can't imagine the mischief, silliness and craziness that would come with raising four sons that are all two years apart. Surely my mother-in-law must have constantly had her hands full and her patience tested to the max. I can see why she took a five year break before she had two daughters. I would likely be certifiable if this was my lot. Yet, when I see old pictures of Niels and his brothers, I can't help but to think how much fun these boys must have had growing-up together.

What was intended to be a brothers trip quickly evolved into a mini family reunion. Niels' mom happened to be visiting from Germany, and once his dad and step-mom heard that all the siblings were going to be together (with the exception of one daughter serving a mission in Chili) it was a no-brainer to make the trip from Reno. And then there's me and Claire who decided to hop in the car last minute and crash brother's weekend too.

Volleyball is a pretty standard activity at most Jensen gatherings. But this isn't your ordinary picnic volleyball. They are all very good and slightly competitive which makes it pretty amusing to watch.

And what's a boy trip without any toys? Or an entire arsenal for that matter.
It was a quick trip but they seemed to pack in a lot of great stuff. Thanks for letting us share your weekend with you!
