Early arrivals and dinner the night before…
Tom’s sister and family from Georgia and New York, Nathan and Jason, from California. Adam, from here on his way to Colorado. All helping to get ready for the big day. First thing…the welcome sign goes up!
Welcome cousins…first cousins, cousins-in-law, first cousins once removed, and second cousins…and everyone who isn’t one of those…welcome!
Cutie pie cousins
Eating, swimming, driving the tractor, playing…
Skipping stones down by the creek bank
Barbara brings little gifts for everyone, kids and grown ups. The kids don’t look too excited here, but really, when it’s time for door prizes they come a running!
Most families have to leave on Saturday evening, but the out-of-staters slept over and stayed through Sunday. They made the most of their extra time. Uncle Tom and Grammy Barb took the boys fishing early in the morning.
Finally, winding down on Sunday night. A campfire for s’mores and fishing off the high bank.
A good time was had by all. So, until next year we’ll hold fond and fun memories of the 2016 Cousins Reunion and look forward to 2017.
