We ate a great dinner of BBQ with all the sides and desserts you could imagine. We sang, played or listened to the music made by our families. The kids swam in the pool to beat the heat. It was a successful reunion. This is my daughter in the pool.My granny on guitar and a cousin on banjo....told you we were hillbillies! hahaha
The highlight for me had to be looking through the scrapbook that one of my cousins has lovingly put together of our families beginning back in the late 1800's. It was another inspiration for me. I have had intentions of gathering all of the old family photos and putting them in my own scrapbook to preserve our stories and history. Now, the fire has been stoked to get the book completed. It was so awesome to look through her book and see my great grandmother on her wedding day and my grandmother at age 19...so beautiful! This picture shows my granny and her sisters.
Here are a few photos of my "hillbilly" family reunion.This is some of my cousins...my granny's neices. Lots of love in their hearts!There's my granny playing guitar. Me... ain't I purty?
It was a good trip but alot of driving from Florida to Missouri! I'm exhausted. Off to bed.
PS Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you!
