Annual Family Picnic

Monday, August 01, 2011

I'm sitting here watching this week's The Closer episode and reflecting on my day on Sunday. My mother's extended family has a picnic every summer and a banquet in the fall. This is our way of staying in touch during the good times (not just during funerals.)

Despite the heat, it was great to catch up with the cousins and their families. There are over 200 of us in the immediate metropolitan area but only about 100 attended the picnic. I realize that my family may not be unique or special. However, I appreciate the fact that we can get together without any drama--just fun, games, music, and a bit of volleyball!!!

    Cool. Fun AND no drama. Where do I sign up?!

    I am glad you had fun. I do love the Closer. Kyra Sedgwick is fabulous. As are you.

    Another Closer fan!

    I am envious of your family time. My mother laughs at my attempts to get the family together in some way. She doesn't understand my desire to have family time outside of 'events'.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon I love it I am so glad the family turned up and had a great time. Doing these activities with the family I love because it makes the younger family members see and appreciate what family is all about. I am so happy to read your blog, Lorraine.
