Another Family Reunion
My husband's family this time, and a wonderful time it always is!
There were people from Indiana, Kansas, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan, and Florida. There was a LOT of wonderful food, many hugs and kisses, countless stories told, and much love shared.
Cousins Rose and David arrived at our home on Thursday and set up camp in our side yard. We always look forward to their visit!
Some of us gathered at Uncle Ervin and Aunt Bonnie's on Friday night for pizza and to wait for the Kansas branch of the Mullets to arrive.
The family met, as always when the reunion is held in Indiana, in Goshen on Saturday for lunch, and then we were honored, as we have been for the last three years, with an after-party of sorts at our home for playing, and talking, and eating, and mosquito-slapping and s'mores, and wading in the creek on Saturday evening.
On Sunday evening we had an abridged repeat of Saturday's fun with another, smaller gathering at our house to clean up some leftovers, wander the marsh behind us, chat and laugh, and singing along with Three Dog Night in the kitchen.
Only one lawn chair was killed in this year's adventure, and all frogs caught were soon released. As always, there were far too many pictures to upload and far too many of you are not shown here, but it was so fine to see every one of you. You are all loved!
