Family Reunion

We got back late yesterday from the family reunion. I spent most of the time quietly observing how everyone was behaving. Harvey's family has a lot of latent sibling rivalry, which shouldn't have surprised me, but did.



This is a picture of Harveys family.
They are all standing in front of the hall that was reserved for the occasion. The food was great especially the pulled pork on Saturday night.


On Friday night we set up camp and then went off to Harvey's sisters for a BBQ supper.



This is a picture of the three people who travelled the farthest.


Nathan, Cindy and baby Audrey came all the way from Ottawa to join us.

More pictures tomorrow, I am still tired out! Must be getting too old for this kind of thing.

Well off to visit you all. Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

How nice to visit family! It looks like a great place where you were, and the food sounds wonderful! Getting older is no fun~~~ I get so tired these days just working!
I'm glad you made it home safe. Sleep good in your own bed.

Hi, Jackie..some of the most fun times of my life have been at our family reunions. I just love getting together with everyone..especially the ones we only see once a yr or so. I love being with cousins that I grew up with but have moved away.
I know you loved every minute of it...hope you show us more photos.

Jackie,

Watching people is very interesting. You can learn a lot by just observing.

Beautiful family photo and I'm glad that the Ottawa residents could make it. Sounds like a great time.

Blessings,
Mary
