Saturday, September 27th, was our yearly Family Reunion in Southern Ohio. There were around 150 people in attendance and there was by far not everyone there. Here are a few of the pictures I took. I do not have a lot of Zachary because he was one sick little guy that day. He did not enjoy himself at all. It was supposed to rain that day but thank the Lord He held it off until around 9:00 PM. We had only been back at my grandma's maybe 5 minutes when the rain started! All in all it was a good time and we enjoyed seeing those who sometime we only get to see at the reunion.

Few of the people that were there

Memory Table ~ A candle was lit for my Great Grandpa & Grandma & every child/child in law of theirs that has passed away and grandchild, great grandchild & there was even a couple great great children that had passed way. Very very moving!

They had several activities for the children one of which was they put 3 gummy worms in a BUNCH of cool whip and they had to get the worms out of the cool whip with their mouth and NO HANDS....guess my daughter was an expert; she was the first one done! Way to go!!! They had a lot of fun with that.


So that not one person in particular is paying for the Reunion we have a Silent Auction & a Live Auction. It is a lot of fun to say the least and lots of money is usually raised. We also have a hayride and also some music which was provided by the Gandee's this year. They are a wonderful family and VERY talented!

Abigail stayed with my mom at my grandma's for the week..when we got ready to leave we were kidding her that we would just pick her up and take her with us anyway
