We are Family...

As most of my readers already know (because they were there), the last few days were spent at a family reunion.  Before anyone groans you should know that this was actually a lot of fun and a chance for the 41 (soon to be 42) cousins to hang out and get to know one-another!

Here they are getting to know which one of them can successfully fold and fly a paper airplane... turns out that none of us are future aerospace engineers.  The masses also engaged in many other fun and entertaining activities - and many yummy meals!  All in all it was a very successful, mildly fattening, and slightly tiring weekend which we would happily repeat (in about a years' time!)

I heartily agree that the reunion is one of the highlights of the year. Many families do not get such a wonderful opportunity to be with their favorite people for three days and nights. If this is what heaven is like, sign me up!

Good, good times. T- could you please send me some pictures...also Sherie and Tia. I didn't take a 1 because well, my hubs was video-camming the whole thing so one set of eyes had to be on the chillun's. I just need 5-6 pictures total of the whole shebang. Please, pretty please? Sherie?

I sent a few, didn't realize how many diving pix I took until I just looked through them, use what you can. Sher has them all on her computer too if they didn't come through high quality! She also has a better representation of ALL the kids - I was just sort of snapping to fill in the gaps and getting my own brood photographed doing those things that we don't normally do :)

Well said t!
I thought it was a great time too.
41 cousins, amazing--We'll see how that family portrait turns out!
p.s. Nice skit! You rock when it comes to costume design and sheep acting!

I didn't get a picture of the airplane activity, so thanks! Fun times. And I think everyone was the same sweaty in their black t-shirts, so it's all good.
