Vacation - Day Six (Plus Extra!)

Day six of our vacation brings us to Wednesday. This is the day we decided to have our mini family reunion. We had it at the retirement home my grandmother was living in, since she is not able to travel. It was nice. Most of my cousins were there and all of my aunts and uncles were there. The Kid was able to officially meet his great grandmother for the first time. He is the oldest great grand child, so it was nice to get a picture of them.




We ate dinner and had family discussions. Half of the group went out to the local pub afterward while the other half went back to the house. I went back to the house. My dad, the "rebel" was the only adult that went out with the younger group. Of course....


In the first picture is my Uncle John, my dad, my Aunt Ginger and my Uncle Scott with my grandmother seated in the middle. These are my grandmother's four kids.






In this second picture is my tiny mom, my Uncle Bob and my Aunt Jo. These were all of the in-laws.












In this picture is the kid with my grandmother. This shot was taken by surprise and I love the outcome. It wasn't staged and those usually make the best pictures.






On a side note, the kid started his first day of school. He is now a freshman in high school. Girls, watch out! He's a cutie and a quite the teaser. I am sure this school year will prove to be interesting.

I've so enjoyed the journey...

Thanks!


The kid looks GREAT, and that photo with your great grandmom is superb, the stuff family archives are made of.

your boy is a cutie! so glad he got to hang with the family. While I look back on my family reunions when I was younger as mostly boring, I still highly value those memories.

Nice family.
I keep thinking you are going to be hiding in the background in one of the shots! But you never are.
Okay, I'll stop bugging you to put up a picture of yourself.
