Reunion Wrap Up

Hub's Family Reunion is over for another three years. The next one is scheduled for July 6-8th weekend in 2012. Right on top of our 22nd wedding anniversary. Hmmmm..... when we were planning our wedding you would have thought someone would have mentioned that the Germanys have their family reunion every three years on July 4th weekend, but somehow that detail was NEVER mentioned. Despite that little detail, I wouldn't change our wedding date because it was the only time that hub's Uncle Phil could come and perform our wedding ceremony. I can't imagine anyone else doing our wedding ceremony but him and sadly he died very unexpectedly the very next summer.

Anyway, here are a few pics I took at the reunion this year.

This is Little Guy in front of the generational "bulleye" that was put up for people to sign up on when they arrived. You can see all of the "heads" of the family in the center. I told you this was a huge family.

One of the main reasons the boys look forward to going is because they are going to get to see Uncle L and Aunt D. They wish that their cousin, J, could come too but know he is a big important college guy now. Isn't Aunt D pretty?

Big Guy really enjoyed playing some chess with Uncle R during the reunion. Our nephew, Lu, is just "cutting his teeth at the game. Ha!!!

This was a FAVORITE hang out during the reunion. The reunion is held at the family campground. If you have ever been to an open air campmeeting you know just what the campground is like. It is a beautiful campgrounds, but boy is it HOT. This new pavilion is covered and filled with rocking chairs and picnic tables. We all loved it but agreed all it needed to be perfect was a few ceiling fans.

I mentioned hub's Uncle Phil who did our wedding ceremony. Hubs grew up living next door to them in Florida before he moved to Mississippi. He misses his cousins immensely and looks forward to seeing them at reunions and any chance he can get.

i miss my family reunions. on my granddaddy's side, all the older generations died off and the family kind of went their separate ways. plus it is in St. Louis (kind of far away). i didn't make it to my mamaw's side last year, but hopefully this year.

i love the idea of the bull's eye!

Man, this family reunion looks like SO much more fun than ours. At ours, half the family sits on one side and half the family sits on the other. Where you sit depends on who you're speaking to that particular year. HA! Wish I was kidding!
