The unique blue tin cans, filled with yellow flowers, graced the picnic tables in the big,
white pavilion. We gathered last evening for the "once a year" summer reunion, from
my dad's side of the family. 

It continues to be a joy to be a part of such a big, special family!  Actually, this is only part of that extended family.  Because of summer schedules, many could not attend.

Family photo taken by my dear sister-in-law.  That was no small undertaking, I might add.

And, for an extra special treat, we had one family share their exceptional vocal talents with us.
They sang, we took it all in, enjoying every minute.  Then, the last two songs, we got to sing along, and that was so meaningful.

"Think of your family today and every day thereafter.  Don't let the busy world of today keep
you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family".     ~The Fresh Quotes

The weather this past weekend provided abundant rains on Saturday and hot, sunny, humid weather
on Sunday.  The end of July at it's finest! 

I do hope you had some of your own memorable moments, as well.

Thank you for stopping by!

So sweet Judy. Your family is large! When I saw the picture of all of you outside all I could think is ...they are not in Texas! :)

Wow, that's a whole lotta folks! Hubby and I have such small families and we haven't had a reunion in years. We need to change that! Happy new week!

You have had such a busy summer, packed-full of fun things.

Have you moved into your new home yet?

Just a little something from Judy said...

It has been a very busy summer for us! We are scheduled now to move on August 15th.
