Family Reunion

Last weekend we had a family reunion and a birthday party for my 90 year old grandmother.  I hadn't seen some of my cousins in 5+ years so I was super excited for the weekend!  We had a ball laughing about our times together as kids and getting in trouble when we were younger!  Our kids, even though they had just met for the first time, had a ton of fun playing together.  Every night the kids came in exhausted, filthy, but full of smiles.  Here are a few pictures from the weekend:
Happy Birthday, Grandma!
The "old" men played football with the kids!
The older guys were sucking air during the whole game!

I am SO thankful that my cousin Shane is a photo-freak like me!

The Easter egg hunt!

Filthy socks to prove you played hard!

Poor Kourt broke her arm on the last day.  She fell while racing Morgan. :(
This is Clyde, my brother's toy Australian Shepard.

This is Clyde "herding" the kids!

This coming week I get to head to Illinois to see my childhood besties!  Shannon, my BFF since I was 6 years old, recently had a baby that needs my hugs and kisses!  I don't know if I am more excited to smooch on the baby or photography him!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great photos! I miss my grandma.

  2. Your grandma is beautiful! I have a feeling that if my cousins and I got together, we'd get into a giant spat in the first 10 minutes. LOL!

  3. It was great seeing everyone. I'm really getting into the photography stuff now too. Shane has been taking some awesome pics, love the green bean ones on facebook. Anyway, I'm debating the idea of doing a picture a day book. I really liked the idea when I saw yours, but it does look a little overwhelming. Anyway, my blog is not nearly as "put together" as yours, but I'm attempting to go in that direction when I have time. I'm thinking about setting up a blog just for my art, but who knows, just ideas at this point.
