Family Reunion - Part 1

How is everyone doing? I sure have missed all of you and I plan to get around to visit later today. In all, I took over 200 pictures, but don't worry, I'm not going to post but a few.

On Thursday, hubby's two sisters and SIL came over for lunch. Since it was so hot I prepared chicken salad, pasta salad, salad with strawberries and french bread. For dessert we had banana pudding. From left to right is Donna, Joan and Mary Lou. Joan was married to hubby's brother who died a few years ago.


Here's hubby trying to get a word in between all the tails that were told.

Mary Lou brought her granddaughter, Katlyn so her Mom and a few others to take a road trip to visit a mental health facility that is now closed. It is really a creepy place to visit.


Here's more pics of Joan.


Mary Lou
Donna

On Friday hubby's son and family came to visit. They wanted to go out for lunch so we took them to Bob Evans. Amber, my DIL met us there to drop off Kati. It had been a year since Katie and Allie had seen each other and you would have thought it was just last week. After lunch we all came back to the house to hang out for the rest of the afternoon.


Here is Seth, who will be 3 in October. He will again participate in the Down Syndrome walk in Jacksonville, FL this fall.


This is Daddy, Scott watching something on the tube.

Here's Donna, his Mommy.


Allie


Pawpaw, Seth and CC. Seth really liked having CC to pet. They have a cat, so he was not afraid of CC.

Kati and Allie


Donna was telling me about the withdrawals she was having not being able to go on-line, so I handed her my laptop so she could check out her email and products she sells on Ebay. She sells Kelly's Kids clothing. At the end of a season she will put anything she hasn't sold on Ebay.

Later in the evening we all met at a steak house for dinner. There was 25 to 30 of us. I will share those pictures with you tomorrow. I know what you are thinking, where's Linda. Well I was taking the pictures. I need to hand the camera to someone and say, take a few of me.

Now I'm off to see what you have been doing these past few days.

Hi Linda,

Your pictures of the Family Reunion are great. It's so nice to have a large family get-together, to catch up on everyones news and just visit and be together. The little girls are so cute, as is the little boy. And CC is just the cutest doggie.

I look forward to the next batch tomorrow, And next time, have someone take a picture of you as well.

Thanks for sharing the good times with family in pictures. I enjoyd it.

Have a great Monday evening.

Hugs,

Renie

Looks like a good visit was had by all. I am glad to know you went out to eat a lot and that you didn't have to cook for 25 to 30 people. Whew!! That would have been a job for sure.

I was hoping to see some pictures. Hope your loving that camera! Your (well hubby's to be exact) family sounds like mine... getting together means kids and food!

Thanks for stopping by!
