I had a beautiful day yesterday with family. We have many family in our area and though not everyone could come to the due, we had a great turnout. I'd guess that perhaps 80 came, maybe more than that.
The weather was perfect and we had such a fun time together. The theme this year was Crazy Hats and some of the hats worn were hilarious! We also held our auction with a woman member being such a great and funny auctioneer. This money goes towards our next Reunion. There was races for the youngsters, games for the adults and lots of going around chatting with the individual families. Some came from far and wide too.
As promised, here are a few of my photos from the day, I have literally hundreds!
Two of my grown grandsons with their families (these two are my son's boys)
My sister and I . . . we are the matriarchs of the family
Some of the hats worn, they were being judged too, lol
Some of the youngest who worn crazy hats
Some were shy in their hats
A few of the tables for the meal together
Auction table with lots of goodies to be sold off
Many beautiful posters were hung around the pavillion, too numerous to post here. One with Memories of those who have passed on (with their photos); one with the newest members of our clan; one of reunions past, etc. A lot of thought and planning and hard work went into this yearly reunion and was appreciated and enjoyed by all.
Part of our clan; some had already gone home, some were in another area of the park when photo was taken
My niece, who was our hostess for this year's reunion; she did a beautiful job!
And now . . . I'm tuckered right out after yesterday. Maybe I'm not as young as I think I am? lol Getting things ready and organized today and tomorrow for my husband's surgery on Tuesday. I'll blog again after his operation is all over and he's on the road to recover!
Enjoy your Sunday!
